it Is now an end to the horror, or the horror has no end? Yesterday it was announced that the pharmaceutical giant Purdue pay up to 12 billion francs to fight the US drug crisis-and in bankruptcy wants to go. Alone 4 billion of that will come from the Sacklers personally, the owner's family. With works has the sale of indulgences, David Sackler. He is acquired at the end of 30, a grandson of the three Sackler brothers, sons of a poor Jewish immigrants from Purdue in 1952, the company had made large and your family rich.
The Sacklers were patrons of the Arts and had a whole wing for the Museum under your name. Today, their billion are considered to be blood money. The Louvre in Paris, the Metropolitan Museum in New York, the National Portrait Gallery in London, the Jewish Museum in Berlin – all of them had once taken the dollar, the Sacklers is only too happy to; today, you want to have to do with the family, nothing more. Her Name was taped over. The Guggenheim in Manhattan, was sought by activists home, which announced on a huge Billboard: "Shame on you, Sacklers!"
The reason for this is Oxycontin. The Opium-based drug was launched by Purdue Pharma in 1996 on the market. The selling point was, this Opioid-fighting chronic pain, especially effective, however, without the addictive. Purdue claimed, out of fear of Addiction had been prescribed until then, too little for the pain. But the unbearable Suffering of the patient was avoided, thanks to Oxycontin. The Purdue representatives were at the Doctors aggressive. Studies, the the true addiction potential presented, have been wiped under the table.
no one else has earned so much of the misery
The result was the Opioid crisis that has the US in its grip. Alone 200'000 Americans came directly through Opioid Addiction killed; once again so many in that the Opioid had driven them in the use of Heroin and other addictions. Tom Petty and Prince were the most famous victims.
in 2007, has been found to be a complicity of Purdue to the crisis in the courts. But the Sacklers were silent more iron. The Silence, David broke now, but only in a glossy magazine. In "Vanity Fair" he was able to spread his point of view. His children were abused in school as a gang of murderers, David said to the Reporter in tears. The company have always acted in accordance with the latest state-of-the-science and is today a part of the solution, thanks to your medications to combat drug use and Addiction.
was The real Problem, finds David Sackler, the family have set out their arguments in public. The truth (i.e.: David Sacklers Version of the truth) remains, therefore, unheard. In fact, Oxycontin had a market share from a modest 4 percent of the opioids. In the case of Tom Petty and Prince other brands were in the game.
But not even "Vanity Fair" takes David Sackler the white wash attempt. No other company operating in the advertising so offensive, no other family has earned on the misery so much. And loses to your honor now, I also use their billions of.
