The opioid game

The whole industry was played by one doctor.  It's too bad he wasn't a doctor for good instead of bad.


  • The massive increase in opioid sales and subsequent addiction rates have been traced back to an orchestrated marketing plan aimed at misinforming doctors about the drug’s addictive potential
  • Sackler family members who own Purdue Pharma were intimately involved in the false advertising of OxyContin. A recent investigation reveals the Sacklers also own Rhodes Pharma — one of the largest producers of generic opioids
  • Dr. Richard Sackler — who was deeply involved in the marketing of OxyContin — was recently awarded a patent for a new, faster-dissolving form of buprenorphine, used in the treatment of opioid addiction, thus making money both on the promulgation of addiction and its treatment


A government which robs Peter to
pay Paul can always depend on
the support of Paul.
-- George Bernard Shaw
