SENATOR SEGERBLOM, AREN'T YOU A DAY LATE AND DOLLAR SHORT.
THIS DATABASE HAS BEEN OUT THERE FOR LONG TIME. IT WAS USED TO FORM AN ARGUMENT FOR THE DEA ON WHY THE OLD FORMULA, WHICH WAS UP FOR PATENT EXPIRATION, SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED. PURDUE CHANGED THE FORMULA SO THAT THE DRUG COULD NOT BE SNORTED, DONE RIGHT AT THE TIME OF EXPIRATION OF PATENT. THIS ALLOWED A NEW DRUG WITH NEW PATENT, PROTECTED FOR ANOTHER STENT OF TIME.

DOES ANYONE FEEL THERE PRIVACY IS INVADED WHEN THE DRUG COMPANIES CAN GO TO PHARMACIES AND ASK FOR THE NAMES OF PEOPLE TAKING OXYCONTIN, AND THE DOCTOR'S PRESCRIBING. THIS IS A BREACH OF PRIVACY.

PURDUE CORP. USED FOR THEIR OWN FINANCIAL GAIN. THIS INFO WAS USED TO FORM AN ARGUMENT TO THE DEA AND THE FORMULA SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO BE USED FOR A GENETIC DRUG, EVEN THOUGH THEIR PURDUE'S PATENT WAS UP. THAT PEOPLE WERE ABUSING PURDUE'S OWN DRUG (PURDUE CO., GATHERED above private INFORMATION FOR PURDUE'S DATA BASE) RIGHT AT TIME THERE PATENT WAS DUE TO EXPIRE. PURDUE FORMULATED A NEW DRUG THAT COULD NOT BE ABUSED, AND GAINED NEW PATENT. THE OLD PATENT THAT WAS UP FOR EXPIRATION WAS ARGUED, SHOULD NOT BE SOLD AS THE DATABASE COULD PROVE SO MANY WERE ABUSING THE DRUG. WHY DID PURDUE WAIT SO LONG TO INFORM THE DEA OF THIS; AND WHY WAIT UNTIL THEY DEVELOPED A NEW DRUG AND STOP THE OTHER COMPANIES OF USING THE GENETIC FORMULA. WELL TO ME, IT KEEPS US TIED TO PURDUE PAYING TOP DOLLAR FOR THE BRAND OF THEIR NEW FORMULA. NOT ALL PEOPLE CHOP US THEIR MEDICINE AND SNORT IT.
