Almost 50,000 people in the United States died last year due to Opiod overdoses. That is a lot of wasted lives. Wasted dreams. Though Opiod makers and distributors have been hit with multiple lawsuits by states, counties, and cities the dying keep dying. Purdue Pharmaceuticals who manufacturers OxyContin is facing lawsuits currently in 27 states. President Trump, no fan of Pharma, has urged Attorney General Sessions to take action against the abuses of this industry-high drug prices and deceptive marketing of these often deadly products. But with limited action against foreign sources as well as domestic it looks like many more will perish before badly needed action is taken.
