The lawsuits against opioid manufacturers and opioid distributors are starting to heat up across this country. Recently a report came out showing that 10 counties and cities in the states of both Alabama and Ohio, have now also filed lawsuits against opioid distributors for the role that they played in getting millions of Americans hooked on these very deadly pills. Furthermore, just a few days ago, South Carolina, the State of South Carolina, announced that they were suing opioid manufacturers and distributors. We've seen similar things, West Virginia, Kentucky, again, Ohio, now Alabama, various Native American tribes around the country are joining in, because those pills were dumped on those populations in record numbers. Here's the interesting thing, this is why it's not just the manufacturers of opioids, yes we do know that they lied to doctors, according to documents, about the addictive qualities of opioid medications, but it's the distributors who played an equally disgusting role in this entire thing. Those distributors, the people who actually bring the pills, negotiate with the drug company and local pharmacies and get those pills where they need to go, they're the ones who saw no problem in sending a couple of million pills each month, to cities and counties that had populations of only a couple of hundred thousand. There are instances, I believe West Virginia specifically, where you had counties where the amount of opioid pills delivered to that county every month, were about three or four pills per capita. Obviously not everybody in the town had a prescription for it, not everybody in town was taking them, but these distributors saw these astronomical numbers, did nothing about it, because it meant big money for them. They did nothing about the fact that people would line up outside of their pharmacies in the mornings, waiting to get those opioid pills. I have a little bit of anecdotal evidence here, just to show the addictive quality of this. I was in the pharmacy about six months ago, and there was a man there. He was shaking, he had a note that he had written himself, it was not from a doctor, but what he was trying to do, was refill a prescription for his opioid painkillers, and the pharmacist had to come up and say, "Look, your prescription is not due to refill for another seven days." And the man was sitting there begging saying, "I have this note, I have this note." And the pharmacist kept saying, "This note is not from a doctor. I don't know who it's from, but it's not from a doctor, we can't do this." That was one of the most gut-wrenching things I think I've seen in a long time. This man was addicted, he wanted those pills, he had obviously blown through the amount that he was supposed to have, that was supposed to last him however long his prescription was for, and he needed more. Not because he was in pain, he didn't say he was in pain, he just said he wanted the pills, and that's the problem with opioids. Some people are more prone to addiction, and when doctors, hospitals don't get full knowledge from these drug manufacturers and distributors about how addictive these pills are, they can't make informed decisions about what to prescribe to their patients. Patients can't make informed decisions if their doctors don't know all the risks and can't convey those risks, and that's what we're seeing right now in this opioid epidemic. There are a lot of guilty parties in this scenario and these mounting lawsuits, these cities and states that are joining in, to finally bring some accountability to this, is one of the most positive stories that we have seen out of this country in the last 12 months.

Lobbying in the United States describes paid activity in which special interests hire well-connected professional advocates, often lawyers, to argue for specific legislation in decision-making bodies such as the United States Congress. About the book: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0812923146/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=0812923146&linkCode=as2&tag=tra0c7-20&linkId=499e98e3351ef9914747174226366cf8 It is a highly controversial phenomenon, often seen in a negative light by journalists and the American public, and frequently misunderstood. While lobbying is subject to extensive and often complex rules which, if not followed, can lead to penalties including jail, the activity of lobbying has been interpreted by court rulings as free speech and protected by the US Constitution. Since the 1970s, lobbying activity has grown immensely in terms of the numbers of lobbyists and the size of lobbying budgets, and has become the focus of much criticism of American governance. Since lobbying rules require extensive disclosure, there is a wealth of data in the public sphere about which entities lobby, how, at whom, and for how much. The current pattern suggests much lobbying is done by corporations, although a wide variety of coalitions representing diverse groups is possible. Lobbying happens at every level of government, including federal, state, county, municipal, and even local governments. In Washington, DC, lobbying usually targets congresspersons, although there have been efforts to influence executive agency officials as well as US Supreme Court appointments. It has been the subject of academic inquiry in various fields, including economics, law, and public policy. While lobbyists number of 12,000 people in Washington, DC, those with real clout number in the dozens, and a small group of firms handles much of lobbying in terms of expenditures. As an activity, lobbying takes time to learn, requires skill and sensitivity, depends on deft persuasion, and has much in common with generally non-political activities such as management consulting and public relations. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lobbyists Numerous reports chronicle the revolving door phenomenon.[42] A 2011 estimate suggested that nearly 5,400 former congressional staffers had become federal lobbyists over a ten-year period, and 400 lawmakers made a similar jump.[46] It is a "symbiotic relationship" in the sense that lobbying firms can exploit the "experience and connections gleaned from working inside the legislative process", and lawmakers find a "ready pool of experienced talent."[46] There is movement in the other direction as well: one report found that 605 former lobbyists had taken jobs working for lawmakers over a ten-year period.[46] A study by the London School of Economics found 1,113 lobbyists who had formerly worked in lawmakers' offices.[46] The lobbying option is a way for staffers and lawmakers to "cash in on their experience", according to one view.[28] Before the 1980s, staffers and aides worked many years for congresspersons, sometimes decades, and tended to stay in their jobs; now, with the lure of higher-paying lobbying jobs, many would quit their posts after a few years at most to "go downtown."[28] And it is not just staffers, but lawmakers as well, including high-profile ones such as congressperson Richard Gephardt. He represented a "working-class" district in Missouri for many years but after leaving Congress, he became a lobbyist.[80] In 2007, he began his own lobbying firm called "Gephardt Government Affairs Group" and in 2010 it was earning close to $7 million in revenues with clients including Goldman Sachs, Boeing, Visa Inc., Ameren Corporation, and Waste Management Inc..[80] Senators Robert Bennett and Byron Dorgan became lobbyists too.[81] Mississippi governor Haley Barbour became a lobbyist.[82] In 2010, former representative Billy Tauzin earned $11 million running the drug industry's lobbying organization. called the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America.[80] Many former representatives earned over $1 million in one year, including James Greenwood and Daniel Glickman. When getting access is difficult, there are ways to wear down the walls surrounding a legislator. Jack Abramoff explained: Access is vital in lobbying. If you can't get in your door, you can't make your case. Here we had a hostile senator, whose staff was hostile, and we had to get in. So that's the lobbyist safe-cracker method: throw fundraisers, raise money, and become a big donor. —Lobbyist Jack Abramoff in 2011 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lobbying_in_the_United_States

In addition to paying outrageous prices for health insurance, Americans are also being squeezed when it comes time to pay for their prescriptions. Drug prices in the U.S. are higher than almost anywhere else in the world, and this wasn’t done by accident. Big Pharma has bought and paid for our elected officials, and they’re allowed to do whatever they want as a result.

President-elect Donald Trump announced a plan to shatter the monopolistic pricing of Big Pharma that has been draining literally trillions of dollars from the government for the past two decades. “Pharma has a lot of lobbyists and a lot of power,” said Trump. “There’s very little bidding on drugs. We’re the largest drug buyer in the world, and we’re going to start bidding. We’re going to start saving billions of dollars on drugs.” Read the full story here: http://www.naturalnews.com/2017-01-11-donald-trump-announces-plan-to-attack-big-pharma-monopoly-profits-by-requiring-competitive-bidding-government-drug-purchases.html
