    The pharmaceutical industry leaves little to chance when it comes to marketing. The drug lobby sends out some 16,000 sales reps to doctors' practices every year. The estimated 25 million visits carry a price tag 2.5 billion euros. The companies hope the campaigning will encourage the doctors to prescribe their products, but many doctors insist they are immune to big pharma's influence.

The Real Reason Cannabis Is Still Illegal '...Prescription opioids, a line of pain-relieving medications derived from the opium poppy or produced synthetically, are the most dangerous drugs abused in America, with more than 16,000 deaths annually linked to opioid addiction and overdose. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report that more Americans now die from painkillers than from heroin and cocaine combined. The recent uptick in heroin use around the country has been closely linked to the availability of prescription opioids, which give their users a similar high and can trigger a heroin craving in recovering addicts. (Notably, there are no known deaths related to marijuana, although there have been instances of impaired driving.) People in the United States, a country in which painkillers are routinely overprescribed, now consume more than 84 percent of the entire worldwide supply of oxycodone and almost 100 percent of hydrocodone opioids. In Kentucky, to take just one example, about one in fourteen people is misusing prescription painkillers, and nearly 1,000 Kentucky residents are dying every year. So it’s more than a little odd that CADCA and the other groups leading the fight against relaxing marijuana laws, including the Partnership for Drug-Free Kids (formerly the Partnership for a Drug-Free America), derive a significant portion of their budget from opioid manufacturers and other pharmaceutical companies. According to critics, this funding has shaped the organization’s policy goals: CADCA takes a softer approach toward prescription-drug abuse, limiting its advocacy to a call for more educational programs, and has failed to join the efforts to change prescription guidelines in order to curb abuse. In contrast, CADCA and the Partnership for Drug-Free Kids have adopted a hard-line approach to marijuana, opposing even limited legalization and supporting increased police powers. A close look at the broader political coalition lobbying against marijuana-law reform reveals many such conflicts of interest. In fact, the CADCA event was attended by representatives of a familiar confederation of anti-pot interests, many of whom have a financial stake in the status quo, including law enforcement agencies, pharmaceutical firms, and nonprofits funded by federal drug-prevention grants.' ~ The Nation Full article ~ http://www.thenation.com/article/180493/anti-pot-lobbys-big-bankroll Copyright Disclaimer - allowance is made for "Fair Use" for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, and research.

Obama cooked secret backroom deal with Big Pharma lobbyist to raise drug prices costing the American Tax Payer 3.6 trillion dollars!

A lot happened in the 2016 campaign, but one of the things Donald Trump did to win the election was shift to the left on a number of key issues — promising to avoid cuts in Social Security and Medicare benefits and adopting a longstanding Democratic pledge to let Medicare negotiate bulk discounts in the price it pays for prescription drugs...

The pharmaceutical industry leaves little to chance when it comes to marketing. The drug lobby sends out some 16,000 sales reps to doctors' practices every year. The estimated 25 million visits carry a price tag 2.5 billion euros. The companies hope the campaigning will encourage the doctors to prescribe their products, but many doctors insist they are immune to big pharma's influence.

We visit the headquarters of Eli Lilly in downtown Indianapolis where the power of Big Pharma has carved out Indiana's political landscape, supplied its lobbyists and operatives, and created an empire of profits by (reportedly) treating the symptoms, hiding the risk and harm, and insisting on the safety of products – like Thimerosal and Prozac – without sufficient testing, and even less regard for the lives affected. Read more at Truthstream: http://truthstreammedia.com/2015/08/14/visiting-eli-lilly-headquarters-marketing-big-pharma-profits-at-the-expense-of-public-safety/ With the shameful record of having only one sham of a study on the safety of Thimerosal back in the 1920s, Eli Lilly has had the gall to insist upon the safety of their products, even as lobbyists in Washington moved to get a secret rider in the Patriot Act to give immunity to legislation to companies in cases of autism linked to thimerosal-containing vaccines. http://www.counterpunch.org/2010/01/22/the-mystery-of-the-eli-lilly-rider/ Meanwhile, Congressional inquiries are given the run around, whistleblowers have their character assassinated and concerned parents and citizens are ignored, scorned or ridiculed in the mainstream media. There admittedly more than 100,000 deaths each year in America that are caused by prescribed use of pharmaceutical drugs – and big damages awarded in vaccine courts (funded by taxpayers, not vaccine companies). http://www.alternet.org/story/147318/100,000_americans_die_each_year_from_prescription_drugs,_while_pharma_companies_get_rich And yet, the FDA is not doing its job, the problem is not going away, and more and more drugs are rolled out each year. Why does it have to be this way?

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
