FDA can be sued in Prescription Opioid Epidemic — and should be!

The FDA’s approval of dangerous prescription opioids over the years can best be described as “fire, aim, ready” as the epidemic continues to rage out of control.

(MYRTLE BEACH)  Attached is a Memorandum of Law in Support of Plaintiff (Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Research Services Inc’s (PMRS) Motion for Summary Judgment filed against the United States Food and Drug administration (FDA) and the United States Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).  I encourage every Attorney General and law firm in the country suing Purdue Pharma, maker of OxyContin to read this filing carefully and apply it to current and future lawsuits.

Hezbollah Has One Thing in Common With ISIS

It is important to note how the decisions of Israel’s policy makers to go to war in Lebanon in 1982, literally created what is now, decades of resentment among Shiite people toward the Zionist state.

Hezbollah’s origin is directly related to the defense of Palestinian people who were forced out of their own country during the creation of Israel in 1947/48. The group came into existence to protect the Palestinian refugees of Lebanon after the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) agreed to pull out of the area in the early 1980’s. With Palestinian civilian refugees facing immense threat and pressure from both Israel’s military and the Lebanese Christian militias, Hezbollah was born under the fires of oppression and occupation. The group came to existence in a vacuum created by the exit of the PLO, and they are a highly accomplished military, political and humanitarian party in Lebanon with full participation in government policy.

This past week U.S. Senator Orrin Hatch (Utah) announced his retirement from the Senate at 83 years old.

(MYRTLE BEACH) Before Mr. Hatch attends his retirement party as Chairman of the U.S. Senate Finance Committee, maybe some vital matters should be addressed.  Hatch was a member of the U.S. Senate Finance Committee in 2012 when an investigation into the prescription opioid epidemic was launched naming several pharmaceutical companies as well as The American Pain Foundation, The American Academy of Pain Medicine and The American Pain Society, as well as several physicians.  Two of the physicians named in the investigation were Perry Fine, MD and Lynn Webster, MD both from Utah.  I am calling for Hatch to be charged with obstruction of justice and named as a defendant in the many lawsuits filed throughout the country against pharmaceutical companies such as Purdue Pharma, maker of OxyContin.  My call for Orrin Hatch to be brought into legal action is based on the following information as regards the investigation into the prescription opioid epidemic addicting and killing in the tens of thousands:

(MYRTLE BEACH) In 2013, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) launched an investigation of then-president-elect of the American Academy of Pain Medicine (AAPM) Lynn R. Webster, MD, related to overdose deaths at Webster’s Lifetree Pain Clinic in Salt Lake City. It was alleged there were up to 100 deaths at Webster’s clinic which was raided by the DEA.  Webster attributed the deaths to “suicide” and the pain clinic closed its doors.  The U.S. Attorney for the District of Utah declined to pursue charges, effectively ending the DEA investigation.  US Senator Orrin Hatch (Utah) was rumored to be the force behind charges being dropped against Webster.

Gov. Christie’s Opioid Commission and the Nation’s Biggest Nightmare – J. David Haddox, MD, DDS

CaptureHow many lives could have been saved?

(MYRTLE BEACH)  This should scare anyone involved in the prescription opioid/heroin epidemic. J. David Haddox, MD, DDS is the “gate keeper” at Purdue Pharma and successfully downplayed the dangers of OxyContin in the late 1990’s. Haddox “coined” a word “pseudo-addiction” without scientific data.  The definition of Haddox’s word “pseudo-addiction” is A drug-seeking behavior that simulates true addiction, which occurs in patients with pain who are receiving inadequate pain medication. So Haddox’s message to the medical profession was “more” is appropriate when treating patients with dangerous narcotics — and the medical profession bought it. In the meantime, Haddox’s employer, Purdue Pharma made billions of dollars in the sale of their drug OxyContin — as lives were ended.
