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

28  October  2017  .
By Mike Adams .
I almost never thought I would 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 a 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  fentanyl spray, which is intended for use as a pain killer by cancer patients. The company  stock prices fell more than 20 percent following the arrests, according to the New York Post .

Kapoor stepped down as the company  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  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 . .
