  4. Grant Woods:

    This is something that we've seen across the country from the most educated, most sophisticated patient to the least, and we're talking a matter of days not a matter of weeks or months or years. They knew—certainly should have known—that they were going to leave in their wake devastation across this country. Some believe prescription painkiller makers should have known how highly addictive their products were.

The basis for their litigation is nearly identical to the strategy used by states against Big Tobacco in the 1990s.

The White House Office for National Drug Control Policy says 80 percent of heroin users today started their addiction when doctors prescribed pain killers. (Reuters) A doctor is the best drug dealer you can ever get, said the native Angeleno. Once he knew I had the cash I could get anything. My first prescription was $300, and about $150 a week after that. And when one pharmacy started to get suspicious, he told me where to go. TRUMP'S OPIOID COMMISSION CAN HELP KEEP DEADLY DRUGS OUT OF AMERICA While there is plenty of blame to go around, the 25 lawsuits already filed share similar allegations: - Deceptive ads suggesting opioids were effective treating chronic pain like back injuries; - marketing that downplayed the risk of addiction; - undisclosed use of paid doctors to promote the benefits of opioids - use of front groups to.

  5. Melinda Pierce:

    This false conspiracy theory, invented by the same deceitful front groups paid to do polluters' and big tobacco’s dirty work, has been repeatedly debunked over its nearly 10-year existence, the Sierra Club has no connections to Russia or China, and proudly fights for clean energy and climate action because this is what our planet requires, our families deserve, and what the overwhelming majority of Americans across the country demand.
