It's funny that the maker is solely responsible with no ownership of the real cause, overprescribing by doctors.

There’s a medical company in my marketing territory that recently acquired a ton of capital goods from a competitor. Now the medical company is filing for bankruptcy protection because they misallocated their resources. Eh fuck the bank and its creditors that gave you the loan!

i think there was a. documentary about the family who bought Purdue. i was reading in market place there being sued by city's and county's.? red flag. where are the real victims? This family that owns Purdue. its a great story this family. is WOW! there business is the name of a bond.they didnt want to the Business in Slacker but its DR. SLACKER. bought Purdue super cheap. then built business off af campains. the marjor. they have a musuem that was named after them the hired suits to sell this oxy litterily on the streets. they got busted. and went to jail. they did not even know who owned this Purdue. i think every family who lost someone to this drug or has addictions open a rehab free if charge to get help Dr. Slacker should be compensating the Victims personally and publicly. if they file backrupt. who pays for that? 3 billion in revinue in 2017 alone. finally. were leaving iraq.
