Chandler-based pharmaceutical company Insys Therapeutics has again been sued over its fentanyl-based medicine Subsys, this time by North Carolina.
The state is accusing Insys of illegally pushing the cancer pain medicine to boost profits amid the U.S. opioid epidemic. The suit comes amid a federal investigation that has led to charges against several former executives accused of engaging in a scheme to bribe doctors to prescribe Subsys. North Carolina Attorney General Josh Stein has accused Insys of paying kickbacks to doctors to promote and prescribe Subsys for uses other than treating cancer pain and of deceiving insurers into covering prescriptions for the company’s product.
Insys previously has been sued by Arizona, New Jersey and New Mexico and has settled suits in Oregon, New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Illinois.

Huh, didn’t know that. Do they call them head shops? How would you know one? Back in the early ‘70s I used to go to a “record shop” for all that stuff.
