The tide is turning: Big Pharma billionaire arrested, charged with conspiracy and bribery of doctors

Natural News – by Mike Adams

I almost never thought I’d see the day when a Big Pharma founder and owner was finally arrested for running a criminal drug cartel, but that day has arrived.

“Federal authorities arrested the billionaire founder and owner of Insys Therapeutics Thursday on charges of bribing doctors and pain clinics into prescribing the company’s fentanyl product to their patients,” reports the Daily Caller News Foundation, one of the best sources of real journalism in America today.  

Addictive drugs that include opioids, we now know, are claiming over 64,000 lives a year in the United States alone.

From the DCNF:

The Department of Justice (DOJ) charged John Kapoor, 74, and seven other current and former executives at the pharmaceutical company with racketeering for a leading a national conspiracy through bribery and fraud to coerce the illegal distribution of the company’s fentanyl spray, which is intended for use as a pain killer by cancer patients. The company’s stock prices fell more than 20 percent following the arrests, according to the New York Post.

Kapoor stepped down as the company’s CEO in January amid ongoing federal probes into their Subsys product, a pain-relieving spray that contains fentanyl, a highly-addictive synthetic opioid. Fentanyl is more than 50 times stronger than morphine, and ingesting just two milligrams is enough to cause an adult to fatally overdose.

The series of arrests came just hours after President Donald Trump officially declared the country’s opioid epidemic a national emergency. Drug overdoses led to 64,070 deaths in 2016, which is more than the amount of American lives lost in the entire Vietnam War.

As the opioid crisis has developed, more and more states have begun holding doctors and opioid manufacturers accountable for over-prescribing and over-producing the highly-addictive painkillers.

“We will be bringing some major lawsuits against people and companies that are hurting our people,” Trump said Thursday. He also spoke about a program similar to Nancy Reagan’s “Just Say No” initiative.

“More than 20,000 Americans died of synthetic opioid overdoses last year, and millions are addicted to opioids. And yet some medical professionals would rather take advantage of the addicts than try to help them,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a statement. “This Justice Department will not tolerate this.  We will hold accountable anyone – from street dealers to corporate executives — who illegally contributes to this nationwide epidemic.  And under the leadership of President Trump, we are fully committed to defeating this threat to the American people.

President Trump is bringing the war to Big Pharma’s doorstep

Under President Trump, who continues to fight to end the drug cartels and health care monopolies that are destroying this nation, we may see more and more drug companies finally facing the legal scrutiny they deserve for engaging in the mass medical murder of Americans with dangerous, deadly drugs.

And then there’s the question of vaccines, the autism cover-up and the criminal racket run by the CDC, Big Pharma and the lying mainstream media. When that medical fraud and corruption scandal blows sky-high, we may see dozens of pharmaceutical officials going to prison.

    Really, Mr. Adams? Really? You know damned well Kapoor (who is likely from India, not an American, soooo….) is the Harvey Weinstein of the Big Pharma industry–a sacrificial lamb. Until ALL the criminal psycho elites are either rounded up, then tried, then sent to Antarctica (or some other place they can’t hurt anyone anymore), or roasting in the Lake of Fire, I will continue to be as cynical as possible regarding the justice they deserve.

    “The Department of Justice (DOJ) charged John Kapoor,…”

    Funny, doesn’t sound like a jew name.

    Oh, wait… that’s why he’s busted.

      btw, Mike, the ‘tide’ will NEVER ‘turn’ more than a few degrees, one way or another when it comes to Big Pharma.

      That’s why the intelligent ones stick to naturopathic medicine.

        Have surgery today, chances are you’re going to be prescribed antibiotics just to stay alive from the damn germs inside the hospital.

        With major surgery today, 50/50 you will get infections down the road. I sprayed colidal silver directly inside my 13 inch incision, probably saved my life. They didn’t use staples or stitches because they wanted it to drain.

        Hospitals are a filthy ass place.

        They kicked me out of the hospital because of no insurance, that also helped save my life. They through me out with an open incision, wouldn’t even loan me a wound vacuum pump to keep the incision closed.

        Welcome to America, Fkem I’m glad they through me out. Then you turned me on to MSM, another life saver.

          The last time I had surgery, I ended up with lung cancer 6 months later because they had to remove part of the upper portion of my left lung. If they HADN’T dropped the ball & caught my collapsed lung the FIRST time I had x-rays taken, I wouldn’t have needed the surgery at all.

          At least I knew how to cure the damn cancer.

    Back on subject,

    This guy is one of many doing this, doctors all over the country prescribe drugs illegally, especially sports medicine. This poor slob got caught, good ol’ boy doctors skate.

    Who is supplying all these other doctors doing the same damn thing?

    This isn’t the only billionaire pharma guy doing this.
