Sell To The Weakest: Sackler OxyContin Marketing Targeted Patients At Highest Risk Of Addiction

We have to hammer on the abusers in every way possible. They are the culprits and the problem. They are reckless criminals. — Richard Sackler

How can pain patients who take opioids long-term help us to understand opioid dependency and greater health risk?

Why did Richard Sackler target veterans, the elderly, and other vulnerable target market patients?

Did the Sacklers know patients would require higher doses of OxyContin and more doses over time?

How concerned was Richard Sackler about deaths resulting from OxyContin?

My son was only 28 years old when he died from Oxycontin on New Year’s Day. We all miss him very much, his wife especially on Valentines’ Day. Why would a company make a product that strong (80 and 160 mg) when they know they will kill young people? My son had a bad back and could have taken Motrin but his Dr. started him on Vicodin, then Oxycontin then Oxycontin SR. Now he is dead!

We have to hammer on the abusers in every way possible. They are the culprits and the problem. They are reckless criminals.

Another lawsuit may contain even more damning evidence of reckless disregard for human life
