Insys Therapeutics, which profits off of a painkiller 50 times more potent than heroin, has donated $500,000 to a campaign opposing marijuana legalization
“They want to be able to push their far more addictive, far more harmful and far more dangerous opioid drugs,”
Supporters of cannabis legalization say legal access to their natural non-addictive painkiller could eliminate the need for drugs like fentanyl, which contributes to America’s growing epidemic of opioid dependency that claims more lives each year than gunshot wounds or car crashes.
A 2014 study by John Hopkins University found that states which legalized medical marijuana had 25 percent less overdose deaths from prescription drugs
Insys... ...did not address whether the outcome could have financial benefits for the company
Last month, Illinois Attorney General, Lisa Madigan, brought a lawsuit against Insys over claims they had deceptively marketed and sold their medication
the company’s "desire for increased profits led it to disregard patients' health and push addictive opioids
Insys became the largest contributor to the anti-legalization campaign
Same could be said for LE, the DEA, although I'm sure enough members would be just as happy if it were legalized and they could go onto more important thing's.
How dare this criminal element within our society impede on medical evolution and progress. We need to stand against these oppressors and get behind Hillary Clinton to defeat this evil foe immediately before it's to late!
