Was the opioid epidemic allowed to become an intentional “killing field?”


Every governor, every senator, every congressman, every attorney general along with the FDA was aware of this out of control “man manufactured” epidemic and did nothing.

Marianne Skolek Perez, Investigative Reporter

(MYRTLE BEACH)  On January 16, The Washington Post published a “breaking” article on 76 billion opioid pills unmasking the epidemic.  Further they stated that in the many lawsuits filed across the country against the pharmaceutical industry, “plaintiffs have long accused drug manufacturers and wholesales of fueling the opioid epidemic by producing and distributing billions of pain pills while making billions of dollars.  The drug companies, along with the DEA and the Justice Department, have fought furiously against the public release of the database, the Automation of Reports and Consolidated Order System, known as ARCOS.  Until now, the litigation has proceeded in unusual secrecy.  Many filings and exhibits in the case have been sealed under a judicial protective order.  The secrecy finally lifted after The Post and HD Media, which publishes the Charleston Gazette-Mail in West Virginia, waged a year-long legal battle for access to documents and data from the case.  On Monday evening, U.S. District Judge Dan Polster removed the protective order for part of the ARCOS data.  Lawyers for the local governments suing the companies hailed the release of the data.”

This is NOT new news. Every governor, every senator, every congressman, every attorney general along with the FDA was aware of this out of control “man manufactured” epidemic and did nothing. In simple terms, it did not matter to them that 100,000’s of thousands of addictions and deaths resulted because they put a value on $$$$ and not human life.

Attached is the reviewed and approved ARCOS by Health & Human Services overseeing the FDA, Department of Justice, Drug Enforcement Agency, US Congress and US Senate, publicly as published in the Federal Register showing available narcotic quota by product and year.  Of course, there were 79 billion tablets produced, the government approved it.  This information was publicly available as well to every state governor, attorney general and elected official.  Any media or attorney who treats this as breaking news may need a credibility check.  The opioid epidemic is evident in 2000 and clearly peaks in 2013 as shown on the graph.  That is 13 years that a killing field ran rampant destroying human lives in the hundreds of thousands.


Referring to the ARCOS DEA Production History graph attached, look at the explosion of fentanyl (Subsys) from 2013 – 2016,   Insys Therapeutics killer opioid, Subsys was approved in 2012 and the founder of Insys, John Kapoor is awaiting sentencing in early 2020 to his being found guilty during trial because of lies to the medical community on the dangers of Subsys.

Ask yourself if this bogus “newly released federal data” was deliberately withheld to escalate the “killing fields” into the lunacy of providing “safe injection sites” of illegal heroin to addicts throughout the country under the guise of “harm reduction.”

Let me know how much your loved one’s life is worth in the promotion of lies and distortion of facts for monetary gain by those without a conscience.

Outrage?  Where is it?

skolek-new-photo-700Global News Centre’s Marianne Skolek, is an Investigative Reporter who focuses on the Prescription Opioid/Heroin Epidemic in the U.S. and Canada. In particular, Marianne has covered the criminal marketing of OxyContin going back to 1999 and continuing to the present.

In 2002, Marianne lost her daughter, Jill to prescribed OxyContin which her physician referred to as “mobility in a bottle.” It was, in fact, death in a bottle. After doing extensive research on the maker of OxyContin, Purdue Pharma, Marianne began working with the Department of Justice in Virginia in their criminal investigation into Purdue Pharma and in July 2007 was asked by the U.S. Attorney John Brownlee prosecuting the case to testify against the three CEO’s of Purdue Pharma, Michael Friedman, Paul Goldenheim, MD and Howard Udell, Chief Counsel. The CEO’s pleaded guilty to misleading the medical profession about the dangers of OxyContin. Marianne also testified against Purdue Pharma at a Judiciary Hearing of the U.S. Senate in July 2007.

In addition, a dangerous and highly addictive opioid named Zohydro has been approved by the FDA against their Advisory Committee’s advice and Marianne continues to alert Attorneys General, Senators and Congressmen as to the FDA’s irresponsibility in the out of control prescription opioid/heroin epidemic killing and addicting in the tens of thousands each year. Zohydro has been referred to as “heroin in a capsule” and its lowest dosage (10mg) contains twice as much hydrocodone as found in a Vicodin pill. The highest single dose of Zohydro contains as much hydrocodone as 5 to 10 tablets of Vicodin or Lortab. Zohydro mixed with alcohol can be fatal and has no abuse deterrent built in which will make it easy to crush and deliver a fatal dose of the opioid.

Currently Marianne has been instrumental in calling for the termination of Margaret Hamburg, MD, Commissioner of the FDA as well as Bob A. Rappaport, MD and Douglas Throckmorton, MD for their lack of commitment to safeguarding the American public against the prescription opioid/heroin epidemic. Marianne’s research, writing and contact with government agencies and attorneys has also exposed the heavily funded pain foundations set up by the pharmaceutical industry and their paid physician spokespersons who convinced the medical boards in 50 states and Canada that dangerous opioids such as OxyContin were less likely to be addictive. These physicians — in particular Scott Fishman, MD, J. David Haddox, DDS, MD, Perry Fine, MD, Lynn R. Webster, MD, Russell Portenoy, MD also downplayed the risks of addictive opioids in books as authors. These books are still available for sale and promoted to the medical profession.
