These companies are making a product with a legitimate medical use. Unless they actually abet misuse of their product, they should not be liable. Doing so puts the County in the same group as Buzbee’s 50,000 thieves.
Recently read where two Pharm CEOs were paying doctors to overprescribe their pain pills. Is that abetting?
If the lawsuits are successful, no one will manufacture opioids for pain (except for illegal manufacture's) .Are the Commissioners going after the wrong group?Is the flood of opioids coming from the legal manufacture's , or other sources?
One example.Pharmaceutical fentanyl is a synthetic opioid pain reliever, approved for treating severe pain, typically advanced cancer pain. It is 50 to 100 times more potent than morphine. It is prescribed in the form of transdermal patches or lozenges and can be diverted for issue and abuse in the United States.However, most recent cases of fentanyl-related harm, overdose, and death in the U.S. are linked to illegally made fentanyl. It is sold through illegal drug markets for its heroin-like effect. It is often mixed with heroin and/or cocaine as a combination product—with or without the user’s knowledge—to increase its euphoric effects.
