Purdue Pharma proposes $10 billion plan to come out of bankruptcy

"Pharma, The company that makes OxyContin filed its bankruptcy plan last night, And here is the plan, the company itself will be dissolved. A new organization will be created that will direct profits to help people. Hurt by the opioid epidemic. Now, two dozen states immediately rejected this plan to help answer why NPR's addiction correspondent Brian Mann is with us. Hi, Brian. Hey. Good morning, Noel. How did Purdue Pharma described this plan working overtime. Yes. So what the company's president Steve Miller says, is that a new company is going to be created from the ashes of produce farmer that's going to essentially exist to benefit the public. The sack lawyers will have no roller ownership. And over time, this new firm will generate hundreds of millions of dollars, much of it from selling OxyContin, which they say they can do ethically and safely. Will also produce medicines that will go to help people suffering from opioid addiction, and they saved a total value of all that overtime will be roughly $10 billion. Members of the Sackler family also issued a statement late last night, saying, this plan offers and I'm quoting here. An important step toward providing help to those who suffer from addiction. It was clearly thought through. Why did so many states come out and rejected? Offhand? Yeah, there were months of negotiations leading up to this and a big complaint from state attorneys general, most of them Democrats, Noel is that produce farmer and its owners. Seculars. They're gonna only offer of about $500 million, right. At first. The rest of the cash payments, including $4.2 billion promised by the Sackler is themselves. That would be spread out slowly in installments that would be paid over most of the next decade. And that slow pace really angers critics like Maura Healey, she's attorney general in Massachusetts. What the sacristy are offering essentially is a way for the payments to be structured. That makes it convenient for them. They get to keep their billions of bank accounts and make money and use the interest to pay. You know, the state's out over time. Well there OxyContin fortune keeps growing. And there's one other rub here for critics, and that's the fact that a lot of that $10 billion in value that produce farmer talks about it doesn't actually come in the form of cash, which communities really need to pay for addiction programs. And said the plan envisions providing low cost addiction treatment drugs like people, Morphine and the lock zone, which this new spinoff company they hope to create, would make and sell at a discount.

pretty quickly by the Attorney General very quickly actually very satisfactorily to the point of view of the customers are the clients of the the Jim Boston sports club which is a big national organization not just a regional or local organization and well I'm sure we'll get some action for all of you who to express your concerns tonight two more hilly so thanks thanks again to the try to travel now my guest this hour we get pitches for books all the time in this one kind of caught my eye his name is Max mac Regan mac how are you tonight welcome to nights at I'm great thanks for having a day and I really appreciate it's nice to be back in Boston albeit virtually well you're not that far just doesn't stay just below us here and you have a degree for the Fletcher school of law and diplomacy at tops is that a recent degree or we are there a few years ago it is actually I finished my degree is in two thousand six hello took me another year to complete a language requirement but I also went to Boston College undergraduate and I got an MBA from Babson so I'm thoroughly well versed in Boston you were you were nearing the guy Boston guy and I'll tell you what what caught my eye for sold the book that you've written all the the recent book I don't know maybe you've written more than one book is the twenty twenty American revolution so that's pretty pretty timely twenty twenty decision support for voters and I haven't read the book because I frankly haven't had a chance to but I think I have an idea of the thing that caught my eye yes pretty when I was reading the pitch from the publicity company was the question that you asked should we pay all citizens a hundred dollars to vote in elections and twenty five to register to vote that is serious idea you're proposing absolutely I think you know it one of the issues we have right now in the in the pitch was a question this is actually something that you believe in yes it is well I'm I'm going to be really fascinated find out why because I I can't imagine that I'm going to I'm not going to disagree with so go ahead you got the floor why should we pay citizens a hundred dollars to vote in elections and then twenty five dollars to register to vote is that in all elections of presidential elections every congressional election special elections town elections state elections well I I really believe it should be for all national elections so this was an actual Congress or presidential elections because I do think the other elections will flow from that but as for the rationale Dan I really look at what we're doing now for covert nineteen were just authorized two point two trillion to really soften the economic impact on Americans and you know it's really the first time we've seen bipartisan action that everybody's behind in in quite a while and it seems like when our economies since two thousand nine thousand nine two thousand ten right yeah yeah they I mean that was a bailout for the financial services industry amongst other things but this two point two trillion now for the carers act is designed to replace you know paychecks and and five hundred billion today serves more than that at this point yes absolutely yeah right another four hundred billions I pretty sure we're gonna be talking about real money well we're we're going to get pretty close to six trillion dollars of before we know it and of course you know what that's going to do to the to the national debt but here's my question well here's my question and and I I I want to really have a good conversation with you when I first read it I thought to myself this this can't be true I mean obviously we enjoy a right to vote and and and that is a right that is a hard earned right that men and women have fought for in this country since the days of the revolution in the seventeen seventies into all sorts of wars again I gotta be honest with you if someone doesn't want to exercise their right to vote that's their problem not mine an inmate in a trial that they feel that deeply and that's when it's almost insulting to me to think that I would have to or anyone would have to be paid for exercising that right well let me give you a little rationale yeah I just want I just want to lay it out there and then we'll also get some phone calls see what but listens to go right ahead are you raise exactly the right questions and I raise the two point two trillion which is now two point seven trillion to help bail out our economy but we need to bail out our democracy we have a situation now where we have one of the lowest turnout rates for presidential and national elections of any mature democracy in the world and when we get to November I think covert nineteen fears and social distancing policies are going to improve that turn out at all and when we have low turn out the United States what happens Dan is it biases the results of the election to favor the minority of highly motivated for voters who are both far right and the far left and so American democracy can't really continue to survive in such a highly partisan environment environment and the reality is as I show in the book most American citizens are not on the far right or not on the far left that probably rents we are presents in total you know twenty percent of the electorate unfortunately about a quarter of the electorate never shows up at the voting back so the reason I came up with the idea I came up with a comprehensive set of four actions the first idea which is arguably the most outrageous in the when you picked up on immediately was that each state should authorize and pay voters a hundred dollars be nontaxable because the research center that because incentives work so let's take a I want to give people a thousand dollars to vote what white cap it at a hundred I mean that's ridiculous I hate to say this to you but we have a system that has been but partisan system for a long time I mean you can go back to the civil war you can you can go back to some of the worst a political campaigns nasty political campaigns in the eighteen eighties never mind the nineteen eighties we have a we have a a great democracy which has stood the test of time and I know that a lot of folks gonna say well maybe in Denmark they're paying people to vote I mean in countries around the world I I just don't I I think you to put a price tag on the right to vote is inevitable to what this country is all about I mean I went to the last I I went and voted in two thousand sixteen and I could not vote for either of the presidential candidates actually before as you know at least in Massachusetts Gerry Johnson and in Jill Stein the Green Party can right and I went in as a matter of conscience cast my vote for members of Congress and whoever else was in the ballot that year but I chose not to I couldn't abide by either one of the candidates I wasn't sure that Donald Trump was qualified it didn't like the histochemical run and I knew that Hillary Clinton was one of the most corrupt politicians in the history of America and and I I chose not to vote so should have I been fined for not voting well I miss is suggesting you wouldn't have gotten a hundred dollars but so this would be me I would have I would have had to do it I would have had to balance my ethical reservations with Donald Trump and he and Hillary Clinton against not getting a hundred dollars I mean I think when you interject money into the into this process even more than it's been now in you which I've let me do this yes when you interject money into the process the reason our democracy is under fire right now is because of the huge amounts of money that are being poured in the campaign's side interests that are completely biased our results with these guys we don't have a European form of government where we have six parties are eight parties are twenty parties our our our democracy has two major parties you know we had Ross Perot with nineteen percent in nineteen ninety two what what was made of that we had other third party candidates who have never never cause traction let me do this because I want to give you I want to give you fairness two two eight input file your position but I also want to be honest with you so we'll take a break good invite calls to call to see if they think it's a good idea to just a

Yes in the complaint is aggressive sales tactics for sure, but but tell me more about how you take go from that to saying they're Gresley selling something that they knowingly knew was dangerous for people. Well, and I really encourage people to take a look at our complaint it is long. But I think it lays out the whole story here, or at least some of the story we're going to continue our investigation, and there is absolutely more that will come to light. But to your question Magna. Sure companies are allowed to market their products to sell their products. And in fact, try to sell as much of their product as possible what you cannot do is lie and mislead and deceive that's exactly what Purdue continued to do its executives and board directed and oversaw and controlled even in the face of even in the face of information that their drugs were harming people and instead of owning some of this. They actually said about instructing their self Salesforce to get out there and try to market in other ways and continue to deceive and mislead doctors and others about what was happening. If you look at the allegations, you'll see that there sometimes people within the company who are tempting to blow the whistle on the behavior and say, wait, we've got a doctor who's prescribing in inordinate amounts where we've got real concerns about what's happening out there and the response by Richard Sackler, and others was to ignore that and continue with.

So that's the connection here. You have the spoon that you can also cook pills in but are typically used for heroin the Howard and the spoon lighted underneath cook. It politically syringe-injected this is a beautiful spoon, but it's such a horrible ugly addiction. Why may maybe that's you know, the allure for the addict with they think is a beautiful thing. It's not it's not a beautiful thing. In fact, it's it's dark. It's a macabre symbol for me, and my family, and for a lot of families out there that have found these burns spoons all over their house, and that's the symbolism behind it. And we're using that as an art to really show that you're not alone. And there's people out there that have purposely created this. Well, talk a little bit about what you just said. When you say, you found these spoons around your home, your brother, we understand this is one of those that had this addiction. That's right. My brother's been dealing with it for about twelve years now. And it's something that not only affects him it affects the entire family, and as part of the equation as relapsed is back and forth on average people relapse ten or twelve time. My brothers about ten or twelve times. And it really kind of takes the whole family with it. And so you have been protesting along with others convinced there's almost well. How would you put it? Yeah. I mean, I think there really is culpability here with big pharma at the end of the day, really, Robin. Would it is it's corporate greed, and it's funny when the lawsuits came out back in June. I mean, there's been other lawsuits back through the new lawsuits. Attorney general Maura healing in June of this year. We had already created the spoon and saw then having read the seventy seven page. I a lawsuit. It was sort of like a starting to really hit home. Wow. This is incredible. I mean, I'm wondering if this is a good thing or bad thing, you thought this and then to see it at least alleged did you really want it to be true because it's well listen to some of them in Healy's, tune seventy four page memorandum. She says the sacra family wasn't just aware of the drugs dangerous qualities, but we're architects of these policies there are programs, for instance, one the company funded. Website called in the face of pain encouraging visitors to overcome their concerns about addiction. They featured individuals said to be helped by Oxycontin, but they were later revealed to be paid tens of thousands of dollars. There's an Email from former Perdue president and chair Richard Sackler in two thousand one. And again, this is in the court filings saying we have to hammer on the abusers in every way possible, they are the culprits and the problem, they are reckless criminals ravenous further stigmatizing what's already out there. That's you brother. Exactly, this is a whole marketing scheme the fifth. Vital sign was just invented in one thousand nine hundred ninety five was just created right before. Then what did we do as a society with pain? How did we deal with this? Right. So now, you have countless other families have just been completely ruined. And you say it's a marketing plan. Well, the papers also say that MacKenzie and company the world famous consulting company helped Purdue instructed the company to turbocharged sales of Oxycontin how to count. Efforts by drug enforcement agents to reduce opioid use. How to counter the emotional messages for mothers with teenagers that overdose. Yeah. No. It's pretty crazy. I read that same report, Robin. It's it's it's fathomable. Battle that they've gotten this far McKenzie in particular, but that combined with what we're seeing out of the Ohio lawsuits in judge pulsar at the MD L cases down in Cleveland, Ohio. They actually have records of DA data. Right. So the two combined of effectively Purdue turning a blind eye towards pill mills which really were the way that all these drugs in Oxy's got on our streets, right and having MacKenzie tell them let's actually try to stop the DA from doing their job. And they did a very good job. In fact, the two thousand sixteen HR four seventy one get into more specifics. This really was a Bill that was created to handicap the DA the DA now had to show that Oxycontin created death. And it's very difficult to do that with a drug that takes so long. So they had a hard time going in there actually closed down a lot of these pill mills well, and then we also have to add the Arizona-based insys therapeutics. That's the company that's on trial. Currently. In Boston for former company executives are also on trial on charges that they paid bribes and kickbacks to physicians was sort of racketeering conspiracy to get doctors to subscribe subsidies, the under the tongue fennel spray that was supposed to treat cancer pain. Pundit was sold the patients who didn't even have cancer, and there's records of doctors who get visited by these sales people and the next day they're selling twice the amount of Oxycontin. We should say all the companies deny any Cup ability. And as you know, the sacrifice has put many of their millions into the arts lose the Guggenheim. The American Museum of natural history that got the family's name on their buildings, and they claim they are of the same world that you are the art world. Yeah. So it's it's actually kind of ironic that now we're using art. I will say that the soccer family as a whole. I mean, there's pieces of it that that predate some of the Oxy cotton. And that's what they're they're protesting at least some of the family members. But some of the museums that you just mentioned, yes, they've received a lot of funding for Purdue pharma and the prophets that they've made. So we would love for museums and endowments and some of these foundations to reconsider their gifting policy, and we've also seen some museums. Start to think about it. You had a conference last week here in Boston. You helped organize the opioid epidemic accountability conference to strategize. How to go forward? We always hear from pain patients whenever we have this discussion. These companies have kept me alive. Now, by the way, I'm wondering how many of them are real knowing how much MacKenzie consulting and others fabricated patients. But there certainly are some people who are afraid that the whole pain management world will be dismantled. What do you want to have happen? I don't really have the recipe Robin league. Because there is a there's a lot to it. Just like you said, right? I mean, I think there is a place in society for opioids, right? I mean, we have serious chronic pain cancer patients, and there's also a lot of it. That's just been misdirected to people that shouldn't have. All right. So now, you have twenty five plus years of the medical community being educated one way to treat pain, it's inhumane, if you don't treat pain, which is complete nonsense. Right. So how do we fix that? As a society. Right. We're really about one thing and that is really showing accountability. So this is the first really I think the first national effort of doing this. And we've had some great discussions around coming in two thousand twenty. How do we make sure this is a top agenda item? Which is not which is incredible. I will say. Seven or eight months ago when we dropped the first spoon. I always talk about jail time. That's what we want and people would laugh at me. They'll be like Dominic. That sounds crazy and you fast wars Emory months now people talking about, you know, I want to get these guys in jail. You know, how do we get them in jail is really important that someone does go to jail hero because the moral hazard of lenton things. Like this continue the pay to play attitude really needs to end crazy as it sounds. We really need to make an example here of some of these corporate criminals. That's the artist and activist.
