    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. (Reuters) Woods is helping Ohio sue several prescription painkiller manufacturers and is consulting with several others on their upcoming litigation against the same companies.

(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.
