Purdue Pharma has long been criticized for aggressively marketing opioid painkiller OxyContin, which many believe has lead to the current opioid addiction epidemic.

Perdue Pharma get an endless source of money, treating a problem they created and the American public gets even more lifetime prescriptions/doctor induced addiction to opioids.

Why the hell treating opiod dependence with more opioids makes sense to anyone other than the douchbag who stands to make twice profit off all of the misery they’ve caused is beyond me.
