Big Pharma gets busted attempting to make addicts out of Appalachians

There is a dirty little secret that the Big Pharmaceutical industry doesn’t want you to know, and they’ve gone to great lengths to obscure the truth.

Opioid-based painkillers are just as addictive as heroin, because they operate on the same chemical receptors in your brain.  The illusion of safety comes only from the fact that your’e receiving these highly dangerous drugs from a doctor – someone that you have been conditioned to trust in such matters from the time you were young.

Now, as Americans are increasingly discovering this unfortunate reality, the Big Pharma pill pushers are finding themselves on the receiving end of a might backlash.

Miami-Luken was charged with conspiring to provide hydrocodone and oxycodone pills to more than 200 pharmacies in Ohio, West Virginia, Indian and Tennessee, the Cincinnati Enquirer reported Thursday.

Also indicted were Miami-Luken’s former president Anthony Rattini, 71, the firm’s former compliance officer, and two West Virginia pharmacists, the paper reported.

These corporate criminals have previously been accused of attempting to stifle the national legalization of marijuana as well, as studies continually show that medicinal and recreational cannabis’ use in states such as Colorado has drastically decreased the number of opioid users and abusers.

Miami-Luken is just one of many, many pharmaceutical conglomerates whose morality is in question, but this recent adjudication gives us all hope that our lawmakers will begin to hold these irresponsible prescription peddlers accountable.
