Purdue Pharma pleads guilty to criminal charges in opioid case

OxyContin maker Purdue Pharma pleaded guilty Tuesday to three criminal charges, formally taking responsibility for its part in an opioid epidemic. Purdue acknowledged that it had not maintained an effective program to prevent prescription drugs from being diverted to the black market. It also admitted paying doctors to induce them to write more prescriptions for its painkillers.

Sorry about not reading the article, but I bet sight unseen: such a deal, Purdue made a hefty profit. Boy! The price of doing business is pretty good these days!

Why does this posting have pictures of SCOTUS Associate Justices Thomas and Barrett? They are totally unrelated to the posting.
