This is nothing but a joke. The actual people and families that have suffered from the effects of this drug won't see one single penny. It's a scam to fill the pockets of politicians and their Hospital CEO Buddies. It will be drug out for years and hopefully they won't get one penny either. In their war about the only thing they did is hurt the people who actually need this medication. Anything politicians touch turns to crap.

Have you ever sat in a court of law when they try a drug case. It's a joke. Drug dealing has gone on to long to have it stopped. The law and DEA know just about every drug dealer from the big one on down to the small one's.
And the rehab clinics are another joke. Word is that you can get just as much drugs in rehab as you can on the streets.
It's all a money rip off.
I can name so many names of people that walk free from drug charges it's pathetic.
I just wonder if people started suits against the
Government and drug dealers for overdose death would the damn law and court systems would do something about it.Instead of a slap on the hand stick their ass in jail and take a way there rights.
The trouble is half the damn judges are in with the big time dealers and they scratch each others back's. July like a rat they help turn somebody in and go back on the street and sell again.because they have clout.
Are you so dumb or what. Why dont you people understand that dealer sell for the politicians and rich people! They only get busted if they forget to pay the man and play ball.

I believe that oxyconton was heavily marketed in this area because it was already a very high narcotic prescription area. Considering what oxyconton is; it seems surprising that physicians would have follow for the line that it was less addicting or whatever the promotion was that was used to market it here.
