Ahhh, the US medical system.

In ten years 2 companies shipped over 20,000,000 pain killers (hydrocodone and oxycodone) to 2 pharmacies in a town that has 2,900 people.


Over the past decade, out-of-state drug companies shipped 20.8 million prescription painkillers to two pharmacies four blocks apart in a Southern West Virginia town with 2,900 people, according to a congressional committee investigating the opioid crisis.
www.wvgazettemail.com...

No one in the supply chain saw a problem with the HUGE numbers of pills going to the small town. Keep in mind a corporations main goal is creating value for the share holder.


Between 2006 and 2016, drug wholesalers shipped 10.2 million hydrocodone pills and 10.6 million oxycodone pills to Tug Valley Pharmacy and Hurley Drug in Williamson, according to Drug Enforcement Administration data obtained by the House Committee.

Springboro, Ohio-based Miami-Luken sold 6.4 million hydrocodone and oxycodone pills to Tug Valley Pharmacy from 2008 to 2015, the company disclosed to the panel. That’s more than half of all painkillers shipped to the pharmacy those years. In a single year (2008 to 2009), Miami-Luken’s shipments increased three-fold to the Mingo County town.


The manufacturer has agreed to pay 2.5 million dollars to settle allegations of flooding the state with painkillers. 2.5million dollars? slap on the wrist.


In February 2016, West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey ended a state lawsuit against Miami-Luken after the company agreed to pay $2.5 million to settle allegations that it flooded the state with painkillers. Morrisey, a former lobbyist for a trade group that represents Miami-Luken and other drug distributors, inherited the lawsuit in 2013 after ousting longtime Attorney General Darrell McGraw.


I wasn't going to write this thread, but with the obvious abuses going on I found it hard not to.
The corps ship the pill, and the Dr./Dr's write the scripts. This boils down to Greed.
The Corps who make the pills first and foremost task is to create value for the share holders. Seems like the regs are not working. CEO's in prison will stop this and stop this bigly.

So if anyone wonders how Prescription Pharmaceuticals make it to the street...

Like this isn't tracked by the FDA. That many pills to such small pharmicies doesn't raise any red flags, only 'finding out' about it long after the deal is done.

Where did all those pills go? Arrest those 'distributors', subpoena computer files detailing all those scrips ...

The enemies of the US?

This seems to be more about the profits of corps being raises every quarter than any conspiracy by an outside enemy. Seems corps are the enemy in this story (again).

Do you have a different view?

In the same vein, there are only a few big chemical firms worldwide that make the drug ephedrine, which is the basis for methamphetamine manufacture. And you can bet they know damn well where their product is ending up.

Ummm...yeah...but won't that work to our advantage...?

Think about it...if the populace is numb from the neck down...then they could take a bullet...or a machete to the groin...and not feel a thing...

Super soldiers...on the cheap...

The DEA tried to get the DOJ involved in this sort of thing with McKesson but the DOJ thought it was "too difficult".

Too many people had to know about this.

Things like this don't happen in a vacuum.

Just as the illegal immigrants working under the table would stop if you throw CEO's fat asses is prison, so would dumping highly addictive pharma drugs on the street. Throw the CEO's in prison along with the others in the supply chain. This is not a secret, the increase in sales is a known known by the corporate leadership that is chasing the profit gains that must happen quarterly.

PRISON = A guarantee this type of story will not come up again.

The distribution companies overlooked it for profits. So did the DOJ.

They are doing is destroying the lives of citizens of the U.S. by flooding our communities with their medication, controlling the percentage of our population that are susceptible to addiction, rendering them powerless to lead productive lives. I understand it is a choice each of us has to make, whether we get addicted to these pills, but when the corporations are putting them out there to make it harder for that percentage of U.S. citizens I would consider that an act of war on our population as a whole. That is my view. The true enemies of the U.S. does not have the best interest of it's citizens in mind.

Agreed.

There is a small but not negligible % of the US pop that have a deviation in the brain/brain chemistry that make them susceptible to addiction. And this is exploitation.
Prison, prison, prison for the CEO's and supply chain employees. That would solve this, but we will not see this.

Corporations are people.
