Further drugs have reportedly been found on the tour bus of late singer Scott Weiland.

According to a copy of a police search warrant obtained by TMZ, at least two bags of cocaine were discovered on the vehicle in Minnesota.

Other drugs also found in possession were allegedly Xanax, two different brands of sleeping pills, Buprenorphine, a synthetic opiate painkiller, Viagra and Ziprasidone which is used to treat bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. Scott was diagnosed as bipolar in 2001. One bag of a green leafy substance was also found on the tour bus.

Following Weiland's death, Tommy Black bass player in his band The Wildabouts was arrested after he was discovered in possession of cocaine by police investigating the death of the frontman. Black, who is also the manager of Los Angeles club the Viper Room, was held at the Bloomington Police Department, pending charges.

Weiland was found dead on his tour bus in Minnesota last Friday (December 4). A cause of death is yet to be established. A small amount of cocaine was discovered on the tour bus near to Weiland's body.

Meanwhile, the ex-wife of the late singer wrote a heartfelt open letter in which she documented her family's broken relationship with the star and urged fans not to "glorify this tragedy" of his death.

Forsberg added that while she doesn't wish to "downplay Scott's amazing talent... someone needs to step up and point out that yes, this will happen again – because as a society we almost encourage it". She was married to Weiland from 2000-2007.
