Big Pharma is Getting Some Payback! 

The former CEO (Doud) and the Chief Compliance Officer of one of the nation’s top 10 drug distributors have been arrested and formally charged for ‘conspiracy to violate narcotics laws, conspiracy to defraud the U.S., and willfully failing to file suspicious order reports.’ Can you say “FINALLY!” And maybe follow that up with “right on! Keep ‘em coming!” They handcuffed these criminals and took them to jail!

The Rochester Drug Co-operative, which is the name of the distributor involved, has also been charged by the government. This marks the very first time executives from either a Big Pharma distributor or a Big Pharma manufacturer have been charged for the massive destruction and huge loss of life they have directly caused. This, I’m certain, has Big Pharma quaking in their boots. 

Certainly, the Sackler family, the owners of the company that makes Oxycontin, should be scared penniless. Won’t it be a tiny amount of satisfaction to the surviving family members and loved ones of so many opioid victims to see the executives and owners of these companies that have preyed upon so many people by lying, falsifying and outright criminal behavior?

With you being on the front lines of this battle to combat the evil that’s been perpetuated by Big Pharma, you will likely appreciate what was just done with the formal charges and arrests. I sure do! Having visited some of the Salvation Army adult treatment centers over the last 2 years and witnessing the ravaging effects of opioids, frankly I’m ecstatic that some measure of justice is finally being served. These drug companies and distributors have been acting like common drug dealers while on the surface looking like responsible executives. In my humble opinion, the drug distributors need to be shut down. They exist, again in my opinion, to allow the Big Pharma drug manufacturers to insulate themselves from selling their drugs to whomever has cold, hard cash. Eliminating the distributors exposes Big Pharma by allowing complete transparency on where their drugs are shipped. 

The incredible, non-drug, state of the art care you provide to the patients we serve is exemplary. I thank you, each and every one of you, for the dedication you bring to your offices every day, fighting a massive battle to get the word out that says “We can help. Opioids aren’t the answer. Come, experience the very best in chiropractic and rehab!”

I hope you are having a great day, as initiated by a great Morning Priming routine. Let’s continue our fast-paced growth and finish out an amazing month!
