And then this plan will basically put local and state governments in the position of benefiting from future sales of opioids and drugs like OxyContin. Critics say that's ethically wrong. It creates a huge conflict of interest, they say. For government regulators also 13 U. S senators, All Democrats wrote a letter to the Justice Department last month. They said they have no interest in seeing their communities essentially partner with produce Pharma. To sell these products that have poisoned their communities. Judge Drain again rejected those arguments, saying this newly reorganized company little go forward can be run for the public. Good. What about members of the Sackler family?
