President Trump calls for extermination of drug dealers responsible for causing deaths.  Should he include the pharmaceutical executives who knowingly marketed their dangerous opioids criminally which resulted in tens of thousands of deaths?

Last night, NBC Nightly News televised a segment on Insys Therapeutics and their criminal marketing of Subsys (Fentanyl) which has resulted in a landmark outcome — the arrest of CEO’s of the disgraced pharmaceutical company.  Here is a link to the NBC Nightly News broadcast https://www.nbcnews.com/nightly-news/video/drug-company-bribed-doctors-to-prescribe-opioid-federal-indictment-says-1189045827628

Rudy Giuliani succeeded in keeping Purdue Pharma out of prison resulting in thousands of deaths!

Purdue Pharma, maker of OxyContin, pleaded guilty in federal court in 2007 to criminal charges that they misled regulators, doctors and patients about the drug’s risk of addiction and its potential to be abused.  The disgraced privately held Purdue Pharma, owned by the billionaire Sackler family, brought in “big guns” to negotiate the monetary settlement and hired Rudy Giuliani to avoid prison time.  Judge James Jones presiding over the sentencing imposed community service hours at a drug rehabilitation center to the three CEO’s of Purdue Pharma.  They were Michael Friedman, President, Howard Udell, Chief Counsel (now deceased) and Paul Goldenheim, MD.  With Giuliani’s shrewd legal skills utilized, Purdue Pharma continued to make billions of dollars while their created prescription opioid epidemic raged out of control.

Attorneys are becoming the heroes in the prescription opioid epidemic ravaging the US!

Is it an injustice that in 2007, Purdue Pharma, maker of OxyContin was charged in federal court and pleaded guilty to criminally marketing their dangerous and highly addictive opioid yet there were no arrests?

(MYRTLE BEACH)  Last month, “CBS 60 Minutes” and “The Washington Post” did an explosive expose on a former Drug Enforcement Agency official whistle blower, Joe Rannazzisi — who was brave beyond words to expose political wrongdoings fueling the prescription opioid epidemic.   Here is the link to “The Washington Post” article https://lnkd.in/dcqtrrU.  Rannazzisi wears several hats — former DEA official, pharmacist and attorney.

Marino’s support of Trump in 2016 presidential election may have played into his appointment by the President as Drug Czar

(MYRTLE BEACH) President Trump announced that he was nominating Rep. Tom Marino (R) of Pennsylvania to head the Office of National Drug Control Policy for the second time. Marino had cited personal reasons for turning down the prestigious position several months ago. His personal reasons “resolved” themselves and Marino was appointed for a second time by Trump. That appointment is now in the U.S. Senate for confirmation.

Purdue Pharma has another “killer” surprise for America — addicting 7 to 16 year olds!

butransThere is little outrage from the public in Purdue Pharma targeting children as young as 7 years old with yet another Holocaust of death in an FDA approved opioid.

(MYRTLE BEACH)  On September 14, the FDA Advisory Committee will be holding a hearing on Purdue Pharma’s new “blockbuster” opioid called Butrans.  It is targeted for severe pain in children ages 7 to 16 years old.  There is not a doubt in my mind that once the FDA approves this latest killer opioid presented by Purdue Pharma, it will be off-labeled marketed as OxyContin was for all pain levels.  This time though children are the guinea pigs and Purdue Pharma and its owners, the Sacklers will in all probability double their profits.
