Big Pharma Exposed for Knowingly Causing Opioid Epidemic

Big Pharma created the legal opiate addiction epidemic and its outgrowth, rampant heroin abuse, because pharmaceutical corporations’ own addiction to profit arguably trumps any concern it may have had for patients.

Though the accusation may seem harsh, the evidence has never been more apparent thanks to an investigation by the Los Angeles Times — which presents a scathing condemnation of the company behind the notorious painkiller, OxyContin.

Two decades ago, Purdue Pharma began marketing OxyContin — a chemical cousin to heroin — with the claim its 12-hour “smooth and sustained” dosing would revolutionize the treatment of pain. However, the claim is not only problematic in that its duration is often hours less than promised — leading patients to experience symptoms of withdrawal — but Purdue knew that before the painkiller ever hit the market.

As the Times discovered, Purdue’s push to market OxyContin, one of the most abused pharmaceuticals in history, flatly and continually ignored all reports from sales reps, complaints from doctors, and independent research on the drug — all in the name of profit.

How did we get to this point - who has made the difference in the growing addiction of heroin in the U.S.?

Billions Blown in Afghanistan Reconstruction & Billions Made From Heroin Fields

After routing the Taliban in Afghanistan in 2001, the U.S. government began a now 13-year effort to stabilize and develop the country. It has cost taxpayers billions — and some say, achieved little.

These stories examine the waste and problems plaguing U.S. reconstruction efforts that, despite the end of combat, will continue to cost billions — even as our military presence shrinks. We are also investigating the failures, and would like to hear from people involved in U.S. reconstruction in Afghanistan.
Where are these …ahem …assets?!?! Training the enemy of course!

this reads like an open book of treason!

“A curious report has recently been published by Breitbart. It shows that an ever increasing number of Afghanistan National Security Forces (ANSF) operatives trained by US instructor is defecting to the Taliban. The report notes that over the last 10 years Washington has spent a total of 70 billion of American taxpayers’ dollars to train ANSF.

One of such deserters confined that the skills which he received in training with American instructors proved to be extremely useful to him, since he’s now able to share his newly acquired knowledge with Taliban fighters to earn his living.

It should be said that such cases of defection are common among those fighters that were trained by American instructors to support Washington’s policies. The defectors are often taking the weapons provided by the US along with the knowledge they received to “the other side”.

Subsequently, those well armed and trained fighters are being used against the US and its allies by various militant organizations.
