Big Pharma To Blame For Opioid Crisis?


A recent column in the local paper attempted to exonerate big pharma of blame concerning the nation's opioid crisis. The writer overlooked a few unsavory facts about big pharma's conduct, however.

Drug companies have made and continue to make false and misleading statements about the benefits (and risks) of opioids. Some of them have been taken to court and found liable for this conduct.
