  1. So the people who take this drug , if they don’t follow directions from there doctor and they Choose to take more than how it’s prescribed it’s their own issue for doing what they did! It’s messed up but nobody else is feeding you but yourself

  2. I don’t want to be seen as less than just becsure you have to create the illusion of complete

  3. I don’t want to be a betrayed dig

  4. Nobody cares if they are wrong

  5. Nobody cares if you are well

  6. Nobody cares if you are sick

  7. "U can't blame the marketers " they say!!!R u freaking kidding me?YESSS U CAN!!!!Especially when u make false promise to sellers& users saying a product is save. I saw the commercial for Purdue pharma that they aired back in the day and the spokesperson said that its not habit forming and that less than 1% will get addicted!!!Y'all knew and u pushed it anyway for the good Almighty Dollar in your pockets! Purdue pharma disgusts me and u should never be allowed to put any kind of drugs that u are making on the market! If u really care,pay for the treatment of the people u got hooked!!!!

  8. Strip that family of American citizenship, send them packing, and don't allow them to do business in the US. It's time to say NO and protect our own.

  9. Someone stupid to product a drug and sell the drug to people. Let people die without a drug then your company will nothing happen. Learn this lesson and do not produce any drug in the future. Got it.

  10. They need nurses to go give the needed dose to the patient or patient needs to go to the dr to get thier doses …I know sounds insane …but they get into the wrong people hands everytime …it’s no big deal until you have a LOVED ONE WHO IS ADDICTED…and the sellers are not even patients!!!???😒😔so much more action needs to take place ALL THE WAY AROUND 💊💊💊💊💊💊💊

  11. Has turned a decent human being into a Rush Limbaugh. Sue their ass off.

  12. Well I got to go clock in and sell some more drugs now ;).

  13. These drug dealing doctors in Phoenix need to be shut down before they kill anymore people! I have already accepted that my mother is going to be dead before long. Not only that but this quack dr gives her fentynl ? Idk how to spell it.

  14. How about people who were given this for years and suffered the side effects??? They don't benefit from any of this cause when they (the big boss)sues and wins…watch whose pockets get filled wid the loot?????

  15. Who gonna benefit from this oxycontin lawsuit? Only governments (state and fed) and attorneys???? Most likely boss!!

  16. He will be dead soon too, Kenneth Lay style.

  17. NOW I AM CONFUSED? IF SOMEONE WHO WATCHES THIS FEED AND END UP COMMITTING SUICIDE DUE TO BAD NEWS; IS ABC TO BE HELD RESPONSIBLE? OR HOLLYWOOD WITH KIDS SHOOTING PEOPLE ON THE STREETS LIKE RAMBO… AND WHAT ABOUT ROCK AND ROLL WITH THE HIDDEN MESSAGES IN THEIR MUSIC…… GOD BLESS… ONLY IN AMERICA FOLKS ONLY IN AMERICA..

  18. Why will little good come from lawsuits? Did any good come from the death of your customers? Was it worth the money to see those people die? You pushed the drug agressively and downpkayed tge danger. Yes you are responsible for the deaths so suck it up and take your loses. You should be tried for manslaughter!

  19. America is great because we have the right to "CHOOSE"! If your dumbass chooses to take drugs(legally or illegally) you must deal with it's outcomes. Been there, done that, fought through it. Never once did I blame the makers! #PASSTHEBLAME

  20. Anything you can think of that kills people is backed by money ..

  21. It's only a major drug problem when white people start dying and it's actually a disease but they're not criminals but back in the 90s and in the 80s with Latinos and African-Americans were dying from crack they were criminals what the f*** is going on in this world these guys put themselves in the position by using heroin they're a bunch of idiots

  22. The medication works. Some* humans abuse it.

  23. I'm sorry.. I have plenty of friends that have died from this.. none of them were legally prescribed it.. alcohol and tobacco probably kill a lot more people
