The tide is turning: Big Pharma billionaire arrested, charged with conspiracy and bribery of doctors

READ MORE AT ANR

I almost never thought I’d see the day when a Big Pharma founder and owner was finally arrested for running a criminal drug cartel, but that day has arrived.

“Federal authorities arrested the billionaire founder and owner of Insys Therapeutics Thursday on charges of bribing doctors and pain clinics into prescribing the company’s fentanyl product to their patients,” reports the Daily Caller News Foundation, one of the best sources of real journalism in America today.

Addictive 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 seven other current and former executives at the pharmaceutical company with racketeering for a leading a national conspiracy through bribery and fraud to coerce the illegal distribution of the company’s fentanyl spray, which is intended for use as a pain killer by cancer patients. The company’s stock prices fell more than 20 percent following the arrests, according to the New York Post.

Kapoor stepped down as the company’s CEO in January amid ongoing federal probes into their Subsys product, a pain-relieving spray that contains fentanyl, a highly-addictive synthetic opioid. Fentanyl is more than 50 times stronger than morphine, and ingesting just two milligrams is enough to cause an adult to fatally overdose.

The series of arrests came just hours after President Donald Trump officially declared the country’s opioid epidemic a national emergency. Drug overdoses led to 64,070 deaths in 2016, which is more than the amount of American lives lost in the entire Vietnam War.

As the opioid crisis has developed, more and more states have begun holding doctors and opioid manufacturers accountable for over-prescribing and over-producing the highly-addictive painkillers.

“We will be bringing some major lawsuits against people and companies that are hurting our people,” Trump said Thursday. He also spoke about a program similar to Nancy Reagan’s “Just Say No” initiative.

“More than 20,000 Americans died of synthetic opioid overdoses last year, and millions are addicted to opioids. And yet some medical professionals would rather take advantage of the addicts than try to help them,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a statement. “This Justice Department will not tolerate this.  We will hold accountable anyone – from street dealers to corporate executives — who illegally contributes to this nationwide epidemic.  And under the leadership of President Trump, we are fully committed to defeating this threat 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 health care monopolies that are destroying this nation, we may see more and more drug companies finally facing the legal scrutiny they deserve for engaging in the mass medical murder of Americans with dangerous, deadly drugs.

And 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 fraud and corruption scandal blows sky-high, we may see dozens of pharmaceutical officials going to prison.

  1. U still working !!
    6:00 PM – 6:30 PM is dinner time at the all U can eat restaurant at The Crown Casino, Victoria.
    A quick, inexpensive fill up before mum & dad hit the frenzied gaming venue itself.
    It\’s 8:41 PM now – they are hard at it enjoying their loss.
    My Home Support Services lady saved $6.00 at Coles for me.
    She is getting good at this caper.
    I am proud of her.
    Cheers

  2. Toni was at Northland 1 Fri eve – leaving – a guy left his shopping bag filled with glad rags outside his car & zoomed off – Toni came home & showed me – she rang the shop & gave her number – next day Sunday – he rang & with chocolate box in hand – collected his goods form Toni.
    Fresh from 20 years in Sydney – Toni had applied for several jobs over the last 2 month & had no reply.
    Monday morning she got a call to say she was hired.
    Lady Luck wears many guises.

  3. I’ve been to the casino one – Andy & Cilly Lilly took me – I watch the $2 roulette table number as the came down – they ran in sequences & changed from high number groups to low number groups – the number on the $5 roulette tables came down just the same but in shorter sequences.
    It took me a while & I worked out a way to win – albeit time consuming.
    But it all depends on how big U bet as the vastness of the win.
    It was interesting to realise the game.

  4. Someone /’s in high places –
    Is this
    Could this be a TAKE OVER of / or SHUT DOWN of ??

    insys
    Better patient care through Innovation.
    Collaboration With UC San Diego’s Center for Medical Cannabis Research Expands With New Clinical Studies:

    About INSYS
    Our vision is to improve the quality of patient care by building a Specialty Pharmaceutical Company focused on cannabinoids & novel drug delivery systems that address unmet patients needs.

    SYNDROS containing – Dronabinol = tetrahydrocannabinol – is the first FDA approved cannabinoid – liquid dronabinol allowing for fast absorption – flexible dosing ……..

    MAYBE THE CHARGES ARE TRUE
    MAYBE THE COMPANY WAS SET UP

  5. Addictive drugs that include opioids, we know now, that are claiming over 64.000 lives a year … BULLSHIT
    DIAMOX – eye pills for glaucoma – 3 weeks of this pill will make you extremely suicidal.
    No opioids – it’s just a diuretic with a beta blocker chaser.

  6. The Washington Post:

    Morphine
    Codeine – Morphine is 3 times as strong as Codeine.
    Hydrocodone – is as strong as Morphine.
    Oxycodone – is about 50% stronger than Morphine.
    Methadone is 3 times stronger than Morphine.
    Heroin – is 2 – 5 times stronger than Morphine.
    Buprenorphine – is 40 times stronger than Morphine.
    Fentanyl – is 50 – 100 times stronger than Morphine.
    Carfentanil – is 10.000 times stronger than Morphine.

    Just so we know.

  7. population of US 2017 = approx: 326 million.
    8 in every 1.000 Americans die of natural or unnatural causes each year.
    the most prevalent ones being heart disease & cancer.
    women are most likely to die of stroke.
    in total 328.629 Americans died in 2017 of the above causes.
    men – unintentional injuries – household accidents, car crashes.
    death by firearms is 10 per every 1.000.

    We are told that 64.000 died from overdosing on opioids ??
    Not as a result of other toxic medications.
    But exclusively painkiller opioids ??

  8. Didn’t the PM of Canada – Justin Trudeau see the writing on the wall when he legalises Cannabis.
    The whole world is waiting for Medical Cannabis.
    What a blessing this new trade will be to the economy of Canada.
    Canada stands to make a killing if they play their cards right.

    I wonder if Donald J Trump can read wall writing ??
