"Led to sixty percent more people remaining on the drug for longer than ninety days and the significance of that is that for example in Massachusetts, the department of public health says anyone that was on Oxycontin for longer than ninety days had thirty times more likely chance of overdosing. Barry Meyer, we've got about a minute and a half left here to go. I'm just wondering as we move forward. We've got thirty five plus states who are trying to take legal action against Purdue fifteen hundred cities and counties at least at last count. Do do you think that like that? There's now sort of a critical mass of of evidence that might bring the circle of liability closer around the Sackler as individual members in this big bigger story of opiate addiction in the United States. Well, I think the history of every major litigation over a controversial project the product be tobacco being as best. Does it always comes to a turning point? It may be decades maybe years, whatever where the wall starts to crack and the true starts to seep out and internal documents become public. And I applaud attorney general Healy for making these documents public. We are. In the midst of huge public health disaster. Corporations have played a role in creating and and allowing this disaster to continue. And I think the history of this disaster of this tragedy needs to be written in full at the end of the day. Maybe the Sackler is will turn out to be, you know, bandits, maybe they'll be they'll turn out to be wonderful people who who have been miscast, but we need to know the truth. That's the debt that we owe to all the people whose loved ones died and suffered as a result of this epidemic. Attorney general Healy we've got about thirty seconds left. I'll give you the less stops. You know Magna? This is about the truth. This is about the facts. My job is an attorney general is to do the investigation and to bring issues for that affect allies of people here in the state. I can't think of an issue that has were deeply touched so many families not just in Massachusetts, but around this country, and so I. Courage people to take a look at our complaint. And I just want families out there to know that we will do everything we can in our power to make sure that there's Justice for the loved ones they've lost. And for the loved ones who currently suffer from this disease of addiction. We'll we'll have links to the complaint and produce pharma's statement in response, all it on point radio dot org. I just wanna thank all of you for joining us today. Attorney general Maura Healey Christine Williamson and Barrie Meyer. Thank you, all I'm Meghna. Chocolate already. This is on point.

"But when you first read about, you know, the the existence of this this project or this idea, what was your first thought. When my initial thought was better that they sell those drugs perhaps right or sell those drugs? In addition. You know, I think sort of just to comment on on the produce statement there, you know, kind of legal rope adoped of oh, we're only responsible for two percent of this. That may be today. I think as attorney general pointed out they wanted to be as responsible for as much opioid use in the medical sector as you mainly possible when they launched Oxycontin, and I think it's imperative to remember that this company lied it. Lied to doctors it lied to patients. And while there has not been evidence produced to date that the Sackler signed off on those lies there or that they were necessarily aware of those lies. It's somewhat difficult to conceive of. Situation where they were not aware of the material that was being used to promote Oxycontin, the legal actions that were being used to promote Oxycontin because according to attorney general's complete. They were micromanaging the company. So why aren't they micro-managing it back in the early two thousands when the company was flagrantly violating federal law. Okay. So so attorney general Healy limitation back to you on this. Because this is something I want to explore with you as we were mentioning earlier in the hour into thousand seven as you well know, Purdue pharma reached an agreement with the federal government with department of Justice for six hundred and thirty million dollar settlements about potential criminal allegations, not only for Purdue pharma, but individual executives as well. Part of that agreement included a corporate integrity agreement. I mean produced pointing to this in its own statement in response to your lawsuit now. So basically what produce saying, hey, look between two thousand seven to two thousand twelve. We as a company had to regularly file reports with the office of the inspector general about our business. Practice annual reports to have designated monitor they engage an independent review that's about specific elements of produce compliance program with the agreement they reach with the federal government. So Purdue here is basically saying they have been closely monitored by government organizations for years now. So it's ludicrous to think that the federal government would miss all that you have allegedly on earth in your complaint that there's no bad business practice here. The feds watching over them. Well, I I just wanna be clear. This isn't an active fiction when we put together a complaint is based on actual documents emails board memo's presentations, marketing materials, and the like much of our complaint lays out the story of what happened since that conviction in two thousand seven and it is what we allege is. It is clear from the documents and the evidence that this company continued its. Bad practices. The Sackler family was directly involved in sales and marketing efforts and continued to as was noted reap four billion dollars in revenue from the sale of Perdue opiates after that agreement was signed. So what is important to me as I sit with and cry with so many families here in Massachusetts affected by this is that the facts come to light. And we get Justice and accountability that something that didn't happen in two thousand seven this conduct continued, and we will continue to be aggressive in getting to the truth. That's what's important here. But attorney general he'll if I can just press you here for a second. I'm looking at the dates are really important here you use out clearly in the complaint that you're looking at a produce actions in Massachusetts after two thousand seven and again produce saying, we'll look between two thousand seven and two thousand twelve they had been submitting these these reports to the department of health and human services about their business. Practice about. There about their excuse me their sales and business practice. So are you saying that the federal government may have missed something here? Well, I'm not gonna comment on that. And I don't know all of what the federal government was looking at what I do know is what we've been looking at the last three years of our investigation. And what I do know is that produce own documents from two thousand seven four les les bear what transpired here in terms of its sales and marketing practices. I mean at one point in two thousand twelve and internal employee..

"Briefly walk us through Christine, and that is this project that's called project Tango. What is that? What is Purdue alleged to have considered project? Tango is a program or marketing scheme that they developed or contemplating it, basically what's happening is publicly Purdue pharma was saying are drugs or not addictive at all. There's no problem. They're incredibly safe, but internally through the documents showing that that they are addictive, and what they realize this let's profit off of that as well in so calf Sackler, she was one of the board members at the time. She devised the secret plan called project Tango in which Purdue pharma actually would provide drugs to help those addicted of their own medications end to end pain providers, yet call it allegedly in the document and the statistics are pretty staggering to internally they predicted that up to sixty percent of the patients that would try this drug suboxone for the first time would actually relapse. Again, which means more revenue, right? So so Purdue considered getting into the suboxone market the Narcan market as well. Attorney general Healy though to be clear as you say in your complaint, they never they never actually launched these programs. They didn't get into the pain the the addiction treatment business, they considered it. So why did you put it in the complaint? Well, I think it's it's actually very important for few reasons, I this is two thousand fourteen when cath Sackler is having some of these conversations in our complaint, we actually provide excerpts from the actual memo and presentation made to the board in two thousand fourteen that does a couple of things one it acknowledges that the number the quote market their words of people addicted to opioids head for example, doubled from two thousand nine to twenty fourteen they knew exactly what was happening out there. It also is an acknowledgement in their own words that opioids and opioid addiction or quote naturally linked. And here which they had denied beforehand precisely and it is a further indication of the mentality of executives and board members in this company to think about not only do you create a market for opioids and lay the groundwork for opioid addiction since two thousand seven seventy million doses of Oxycontin in Massachusetts alone of opioids Purdue opiates in Massachusetts alone a hundred and fifty thousand doctor visits it costs the state of Massachusetts in its residents. Fifteen billion dollars a year last year alone this opioid epidemic, a huge problem, but they at that point twenty fourteen head devised way to make money on both ends both. You know on the front end. We're a whole bunch of people end up addicted sick and dying every day continuing in the state and on the back end, let's provide a market for Narcan to reverse overdoses in for opioid addiction treatment that was their marketing material why they decided not to go through with it. At that point. We'll learn more about. But again, the allegations we make are based on the millions of pages of documents received to date from the company. Yeah. So again, just to be clear they did not go through with this plan. They had considered on multiple occasions though. And I mean, I was quite struck by something that you allege in the complaint that that it was a point in time in which produced pharma internally acknowledged the addictive nature of of opioid painkillers, and you quote from from a patient and clinical rationale here that we're produce actually saying this can happen to anyone this being addiction from fifty year old woman with chronic lower back pain. I'm thinking of our caller barrier. Just a second or Bob to an eighteen year old boy with sports injury from the very wealthy to the very poor berry Meyer jump back in here. Again, a project Tango did not go forward..

"That patients could become addicted to and. That was the Starling thing when they began back in the mid nineteen nineties that had never been done before. And let's bear in mind that that the first few billions of dollars that this company made from content that ended up presumably in the pockets of the Sackler was all built on a lie. They lie to doctors. They lied to patients. They lied to regulators. They claimed that you know, there was like zero chance of people becoming addicted patients becoming addicted to Oxycontin and the federal government though, came after them in two thousand seven four that lie. Right. I mean, that's why two thousand seven it really important year in this conversation because that was the same year that Purdue settled with the federal government for what more than six hundred thirty million dollars about exactly this issue and promised to change its business practice. Yes. And that's what makes this current complete. So fascinating because we know that they admitted line, we know from the the secret documents that I. Got that the government believes that people within the company knew that the drug was being abused early on. But now we fast forward to, you know, a decade later and the Massachusetts attorney general, and I'm going to presume other states are going to argue that this behavior continued, you know, altered slightly, but the basic drive to get this drug out there. I mean, one of the shocking things in this complaint to me is the drive to prescribe get doctors to prescribe the drug at the highest possible dosage, which we know is the dosage that has the highest risk for patients of side effects, including addiction. Well, Barry and Christine's damn by here for just a second. Because I want to get at least one call in here. This is a, you know, obviously, the opium Edmund has touched so many people across the entire nation. So let's just hear briefly from Bob who's calling from Warren Michigan. Bob, you're on the air. Hello. Yes. I wanted to make a comment about how the old boy aid epidemic has affected me personally, my family. My mother has toy two years ago. She had double knee replacement. A few years later, she had a major back surgery. She was prescribed Oxycontin for her pain while in the hospital. Now, this is seventy two year old woman not a criminal not a drug addict, she did become addicted talks cotton's, she her pain management. Doctor ended up prescribing her one hundred and twenty tablets month. And she took everyone of them every month. Two years ago. She saw on hitter head suffered a traumatic brain injury and about eight weeks later passed away from falling fitting her head a tribute at one hundred percent to her addiction. She did become addicted. She was not herself when she was on the pills. I could tell there is a difference in her mood almost like she was high even at that age in when she was not on her pills. You could see how she would become more educated morning until she took her pill, and then her mood changed and she got better again. So seen company is one hundred percent responsible for this opioid addiction in America and the stopped. Well, Bob, thank you for your call. And I'm so sorry to hear about what happened to your mother. But thank you for sharing your story, Christine and berry hang on here for just a second. Because joining us now in the studio is more Healy, she is the attorney general for the state of Massachusetts. And as we've been discussing. On behalf of Massachusetts more. Healy recently filed this complaint against Purdue pharma and again to put it in context. I should say there are more than thirty five states who are been filing complaints against Purdue pharma as well. But more Healy joins us now in the studio attorney general Healy, it's good to talk with you. Great to be with you make now. So first of all tell me, I just wanna get your immediate reaction to produce statement that they put out after this fully unredacted complaint was released last week. And I'm read a little bit of before. But I wanna read it back to you produce says that you are seeking to publicly vilify Purdue, it's executives employees and directors while under unfairly undermining the important work. They've undertaken to address opiate addiction. And then they say you have taken out of context snippets from tens of millions of documents and grossly distorted their meaning to create what they call fiction in terms of produce and the Sackler practices regarding sale selling Oxycontin, what's your response to that?.
