The day has come – Big Pharma founder and owner was finally arrested for running a criminal drug cartel.
” Federal authorities arrested the billionaire creator and owner of Insys Rehabs Thursday on charges of paying off doctors and pain clinics into prescribing the company’s fentanyl item to their patients,” reports the Daily Caller News Structure, one of the very best sources of real journalism in America today.
Addicting drugs that include opioids, we now know, are claiming over 64,000 lives a year in the United States alone.
From the DCNF:
The Department of Justice (DOJ) charged John Kapoor, 74, and 7 other existing and previous executives at the pharmaceutical company with racketeering for a leading a national conspiracy through bribery and fraud to push the unlawful distribution of the company’s fentanyl spray, which is planned for use as a pain killer by cancer patients. The company’s stock costs fell more than 20 percent following the arrests, inning accordance with the New York Post.
Kapoor stepped down as the business’s CEO in January amidst ongoing federal probes into their Subsys item, a pain-relieving spray which contains fentanyl, a highly-addictive synthetic opioid. Fentanyl is more than 50 times stronger than morphine, and consuming just 2 milligrams is enough to trigger an adult to fatally overdose.
The series of arrests came just hours after President Donald Trump formally stated the country’s opioid epidemic a nationwide emergency. Drug overdoses led to 64,070 deaths in 2016, which is more than the amount of American lives lost in the whole Vietnam War.
As the opioid crisis has actually developed, increasingly more states have started holding doctors and opioid makers responsible for over-prescribing and over-producing the highly-addictive painkillers.
” We will be bringing some major suits against people and companies that are harming our individuals,” Trump said Thursday. He also discussed a program similar Nancy Reagan’s “Simply State No” initiative.
” More than 20,000 Americans died of synthetic opioid overdoses last year, and millions are addicted to opioids. But some physician would rather benefit from the addicts than attempt to help them,” Lawyer General Jeff Sessions stated in a statement. “This Justice Department will not tolerate this. We will hold responsible anyone – from street dealers to business executives – who unlawfully contributes to this across the country epidemic. And under the leadership of President Trump, we are fully committed to beating this danger to the American people.
President Trump is bringing the war to Big Pharma’s doorstep
Under President Trump, who continues to fight to end the drug cartels and healthcare monopolies that are destroying this nation, we may see a growing number of drug companies lastly dealing with the legal analysis they should have for engaging in the mass medical murder of Americans with dangerous, deadly drugs.
Then there’s the question of vaccines, the autism cover-up and the criminal racket run by the CDC, Big Pharma and the lying mainstream media. When that medical scams and corruption scandal blows sky-high, we might see lots of pharmaceutical officials going to jail.
