And the profits.

The family made billions of dollars hooking people on opioids, and not only are they not going to jail, they are keeping most of the money.

It's good to be stinking rich.

Soldier's Disease has been around since at least the American Civil War.

But sure, let's blame the guys who just manufactured the drug, rather than the overprescribing doctors who should have known better.

They encouraged the doctors to over prescribe the drug.

And these doctors had no way of knowing the addictive powers of opioids?

I get that pharmaceutical companies have a knack for pushing their drugs in the market, but the hazards of opiates have been well known for literally centuries. I don't see how primary blame doesn't belong with the prescribers.

They were being paid to push it. The doctors were the street pushers, but the business model was Purdue's.

If you can't sell opium to the Chinese, try the Americans.

Over 3000 lawsuits from every level of government across the entire country and they still got off.

Thats sort of mind boggling

It fits our fine tradition of allowing the crazy rich to buy their way out of criminal accountability and/or military service ... and usually civil accountability too.
