"Let's jump right in to the important discussion that is oxycontin maker purdue pharma pleads guilty in criminal case no. I'm not starting right away with that but this is important for you to sleep to set the tone for not just this administration is or the next one will be only before that was or the reality that this is an ongoing corruption issue. It's here regardless of democrat or republican or whatever else you wanna talk about now. This is important because it shows you that again cross multiple multiple administrations that these same people have gotten away with one of the most flagrant like on its face obvious corruption. You could call this corruption but you could almost call organized crime. I mean this is a really incredible story that means more people die from opioid abuse in specifically because of this scenario that was created by them. Then most of the things we deal with in this country but what. I want you to understand more than anything that this is the i guess the conclusion to the story and what it shows you one that they were guilty except that was something that was fake news that we were supposed to talk. I remember covering the store for years and it was always always no. It's not it's not that company or it's not. This group is government. It's ms thirteen or it's this or that or some other story. Not the government's fall or not the companies that they work with her lobbies them on behalf of pharmaceutical companies. Or so except now. We're seeing that. That was all a lie all all this time. Trying to deep to sidestep into some of the responsibility this is just one of them. But this shows you that they are admitting not only that they made this worse than they benefited. Wildly profited off the death of your family members and whatever else happened as a regard to their. They're willing father knowing. This was happening. Willing to go forward with these policies on top of all of that it just shows you that the government with allowing it to continue because this is something that they were involved in love understand.

"Substance abuse but Johnson and Johnson did not cause the opioid abuse crisis here in Oklahoma or anywhere in this country we do not believe that the fax or the law supports the decision today we have many strong grounds for appeal and we intend to pursue those vigorously that's Johnson and Johnson's attorney Sabrina strong vowing to appeal the ruling Julie Lori one of the main arguments of Johnson and Johnson is we didn't prescribe these drugs doctors did that's true and at the same time Johnson Johnson played a big role in getting those doctors to prescribe these drugs so what we now know from the evidence that was laid out in this trial was that Johnson Johnson was a pharmaceutical company that went about a massive and misleading and false advertising effectively marketing campaign in which they had sales representatives target high volume prescribers so doctors that they knew would be amenable to prescribing more and more opioids and encouraging those doctors to prescribe higher doses of opioids and also trying to convince folks doctors and patients alike that these were safe and effective drugs that they were that addiction was not a problem that it was perfectly fine to take them at high doses for long periods of time you know one of the things that came out over the course of this trial was that and Johnson Johnson representative sales representatives made I think it was a hundred and fifty thousand calls just across the state of Oklahoma sales calls to doctors I'm pushing them to prescribe these opioids and so you know it's it's correct that ultimately the doctors are the ones that are prescribing these drugs however and Johnson Johnson played a huge role in in influencing those doctors and another thing that we know that Johnson Johnson dad was support the pain patients meant the advocacy group specifically that were advocating on behalf of pain patients you know when when a messages coming from a doctor or from a patient advocacy group it seems much more trustworthy than a message coming from a pharmaceutical company so we know that they really leveraged you know those messaging techniques and as a result the prescribing of opioids in Oklahoma and and really across the country skyrocketed Oklahoma also argued that Johnson and Johnson targeted young children in its efforts to expand the opioid market the state compared the company's recruiting tactics to those of the tobacco industry Julia at telus more so it seems like there was no low population that was sort of off limits for Johnson and Johnson to basically push push these opioids on to and eat in out from a marketing perspective it makes sense if you can get more people hooked on these drugs especially people from a younger age than you'll have in our lifetime customers as it were however you know as as we know these drugs are extraordinarily addictive and there are all sorts of negative affect the prescribing these drugs so you know we we have all this this marketing information now that if if you're just taking an economic perspective you it's a yeah that makes sense target as many different populations as you can target people with cancer pain get people with non cancer pain target old people target young people and in reality it that that kind of targeting has really devastating consequences you wrote a piece not a little while ago colds inside Johnson and Johnson is quiet domination of the opioid market Blaine how keen Johnson and Johnson was and how old this market and the epidemic developed simultaneously how did they do it there's so much that is not known about the way these companies operate their with their secret documents that now come out in trial sure so the company's role was really multi pronged so on the one hand they had their own opioid products on that day were selling and they were marketing and they had a whole sales force of folks who were going to doctors and encouraging doctors to prescribe those medications but also and and this is something that I think that most people don't know about Johnson and Johnson Johnson and Johnson had two subsidiaries that were responsible for manufacturing the majority of active ingredients in opioids that were marketed and sold in the United States not just Johnson Johnson opioids but but all sorts of opioids so and the way that they did this was back in may the nineties they had developed this by hi fi being poppy the van is the type of opioid that's used in a lot of pain killers and back in the nineties they were able to connect with what is now pretty pharma to basically say look we have all these poppies we have this active ingredient we can help you to make this opioid and pain killer and we can and we can supply as much of it as you want and over the years you know Johnson Johnson's subsidiaries ended up providing pharmaceutical companies across the country with sixty percent of the active ingredients that are that are in pain killers so you know on the one hand you have Johnson Johnson with its own eye pain killers and with its own sales force but they also were quietly playing this really massive role in providing a been highly of the United States and its time suitable companies with the active ingredients that that ended up in pain killers and and medicine cabinets all over the country I also wanted to ask about Purdue pharma's role in the opioid crisis again they settled earlier and didn't go to trial in Oklahoma earlier today the investigative news organization pro publica published video testimony of doctor Richard Sackler of Purdue pharma the maker of oxycontin this is a part of the deposition he gave in a two thousand fifteen lawsuit in Kentucky the company waged a three year legal

"opioid abuse" Discussed on Progressive Talk 1350 AM

"Okay, Chuck, so there's another big push in good Samaritan laws in the United States. It's interesting how they're kind of like refined as, as things go on. But there's this thread the sentiment that runs through them. That's like, okay, we need to make sure that people are don't hesitate in helping their fellow their fellow human in need. Yeah. A lot of these I mean this label this special interest, good Samaritan laws, but these, these are great like it makes a lot of sense, especially while they all do, but this one about the food donation in the mid nineteen nineties, there was a realization that a lot of food was going to waste fourteen billion pounds specifically food go into landfills when people in America needed that food. And, you know, you've heard stories about grocery stores, can't be held liable. So they just have to throw that stuff away. Right. So they passed the Bill. Emerson good Samaritan food donation act, which is to provide some protections. In case you donate food, and someone gets sick from eating that food, right? Exactly. So I remember back when when grocery stores did have to throw that away before that law is just so wasteful, and so just morally wrong. So they passed that one ninety six Goodyear for passing laws. I guess. And then there's even newer kind of push of good Samaritan laws that are protecting college kids, who drinks, you even though they're underage. They might be worried on me and I'm going to get expelled or kicked out of college. Yeah. If I call for help, and so apparently that some of them weren't calling for help, and some universities, I think it's up to thirty two hundred and forty universities in thirty five states now have something called nine one one lifeline or nine one one, good Samaritan law where if you call for help for yourself or for somebody else who's head too much to drink, and it's like a medical emergency. You won't get in trouble for having been drinking under age. But it's laid the groundwork for a like a larger law about opioid abuse that we really kind of need that the good Samaritan law for that, that protects people who are calling for somebody who's overdosing on heroin where under normal circumstances. They might. Hesitate because they're on heroine themselves. And they don't wanna get busted for it. Yeah. What's it's called now? Zone. And this is basically it comes looking epi pen now and it's something that cops have their emergency kits and just like an epi pen, something that civilian can use. You don't have to medical training. If someone is overdosing on an an on heroin, or some other kind of opioid you just inject this thing. And that Kim, say their life and so do junkies. Don't wanna call the ambulance or the cops or whatever just the same as an underage college kid doesn't want to call the cops, so they're often described as medical amnesty laws and his great. You know exactly. And it's making a difference. There was one study in two thousand two at Cornell about the alcohol one and they said there was a rise from twenty two percent to fifty two percent of counseling sessions attended by students in two thousand four because students weren't afraid, you know, I'm nineteen years old or whatever. I need help. So they, you know, it's shown that it's working, and I think this is going on with this now drug right? Yeah. So like the naloxone kind of has its own protection where whether you're somebody who's on heroin or not, if you minister that you could be a medical professional. It's like such a new thing that, that they've they've realized they need a specific. Good Samaritan law for that, to cover anybody who's administering Nalic zone, like if they do some damage or whatever they were still trying to help. But then also, if you're like on heroin yourself just calling nine one one, you can have immunity in some states from getting busted for heroin for being on it yourself. Right. So, like, hey, we're gonna save you and you're under arrest. Right. Which I guess, is is still in some states. It's still a possibility don't like you don't want people worrying about whether they're going to get pop themselves. And then saying, well, I can't. Call for you know, shortage over here. Which is I guess a heroin users name. You know, so the, the, the heroin user, who's overdosing, who would otherwise live dies because they're the person, they shot up with, like, is too worried about getting busted themselves because the last thing, a heroin editor drug addict might do in the throes of that drug is thank let me call a cop, or right? A police officer. They might help. Right. They say, like as far as vice goes for good Samaritans. This article councils people that think sensibly most states do have laws to protect people that if you're doing something reasonable to try and help which all goes back to split second is kind of tough. But that goes back to what you're saying, like reasonable maneuvers to help somebody. Yeah. I mean it's not necessarily like like don't try the tracheotomy right right, right? So. Yeah. So that kinda ties into saying, don't try things. You're not trained to do and just kinda ties into reasonable like is, is trying to administer CPR reasonable thing if you come upon somebody's not breathing. Yes, totally reasonable. Is it is it, you know, unreasonable to try to get their heart going by by pumping their arms up and down in dislocating, the shoulder, probably not going to be protected by a good Samaritan law. Yeah, but how much can you get sued for for a broken collarbone, probably a lot, especially if the person's like ping pong player or professional illustrator? Yeah. Right. Exactly. You love it. We need to do an episode on pingpong. I love ping pong, too. I'm surprised we never squared squared off. I, I am as well, Chuck. Well, we've never been in the same room as a ping pong table today. I was thinking I was going to make a camp joke, but. Debate me to the truth. You got anything else? Oh, yes, I do. There's one thing that came up if you don't mind talking about it. The Seinfeld thing. Do you remember how that the final episode? Right, right. Yeah. Which is like the least funny episode of Seinfeld ever. But it had like a weird message when, when the gang gets gets put in jail for watching a guy, I think it was Jonathan Pinette get carjacked by somebody with a gun and just sitting there making fun of them while they're videotaping it, right? Yeah. And that kind of raise the this it kind of ties into good Samaritan laws. A lot of people are, like can you actually is there any place in the country where you can get get in trouble for that kind of thing? And it turns out no kind of falls into that duty to act law, where you are in some places like for Mont, or I think in, in California under some circumstances. You are required to report a crime, but you're not required to actually intervene. Like, kinda that big point I made earlier at the beginning of episodes. That's a big distinction, right? Yeah. And not only are you. You know, not required interview you're not even required to report the crime during the commission of their, the crime for most duty to act laws. You just can't walk away and pretend you never saw anything that's the that's where you will get prosecuted. So the Seinfeld gang probably would not have gone to jail, and this article that I read. Quotes, a guy who's an attorney in San Diego named somebody lists. Oh man. I wish I could remember the guy's name FRANZ Liszt. No not FRANZ Liszt, who's a great great composer. But a. L. I. S S lists. Yeah. Peter lists criminal lawyer from San Diego, ended up in this article he basically says, not only should they not have gone to jail. They provided very valuable evidence by recording the entire crime. So let them off the hook has there ever been a tougher show to end than Seinfeld. Probably not. But they really chose Severi specific unsatisfying way to do it. What about sopranos everybody hated how that? And it yeah. I didn't love the sopranos, but then moved to LA during its run and didn't have TV. So I quit watching it, but I do remember all the hoopla, but seinfeld's just one of those, I mean that the stunk but it's just a hard show to end because you can't it was the most sentimental show, probably in TV history. And most shows have finale that is highly sentimental. Right. And you just you couldn't do that on Seinfeld that would not have been true to the show. So I don't know what I would have done. It is tough one. Maybe it was the perfect ending wasn't a. You could make that case for sure. You know, I'd like to hear maybe if someone had a better idea. Okay. Right. Rewrite the Seinfeld finale. In one hundred sixty characters or less to us or to forty now. What is that? So weird. Anyway, I think that's the end of this episode. We kind of let this Peter out to. Yep. Okay. If you wanna learn more about good Samaritan laws actually a tip go. Learn your state and or countries good Samaritan laws. So you know what to do in your ever faced with an emergency situation. And since I said that it's time for listener mail. This one's great who's going to call it great Email guys in the spirit of thanksgiving in this glass of wine. I'm drinking.

"In violent crimes and encourage an opioid abuse. Not just the people coming across the border and shooting down cops or dying in car wrecks. But it's also the human trafficking and opium coming across that border. And every fate is a border state every single state in this country is a border state and people need to pay wake up and pay attention. And know that this affects them pretty unbelievable that there where their priorities are. It's like they knew they know the truth because they supported all of this back just a couple of years ago. And Karen, that's the whole hypocrisy and all of this, and they seem to care about the only they were bludgeoning the president. When there was the issue of child separation which had taken place in the Obama and Bush years they didn't seem to care then they wanted to build the wall of a barrier. They're willing to fund it then. And so to me, it's all just politics as usual and just like the stunt of Nancy Pelosi yesterday. Well, we're not gonna have the state of the union address. If we don't think we can have the proper security, but she'd never. Consulted with the secret service, nor did she consult with the department of homeland security when they said they could easily have the state of the union. She didn't want to hear that. I don't care what they have to say. That was a statement why an affront to the capitol police the secret service and homeland security, and what hypocrisy for speaker Pelosi to to say that you know, to have a government shutdown over her refusal to provide for adequate border security, then she suddenly concerned over her own security, and that of her colleagues because of that shutdown that she has created the Crecy is ludicrous. And you know, we we're just fighting, Sean, we're we're right with you in this battle. This is such a slap in the face and attempting to score political points by denigrating those currently serving to protect her and her colleagues is absolutely shameful. And you know, she is suggesting breaking with more than a century long precedent up the president of the United States being able to deliver an in person state of the union speech to a joint session of congress. So my question. Is is that an attempt at censorship? Should we be looking at it through that lens? When are they are they rank hypocrisy, the people that claim that they have the most compassion the people that were screaming the loudest over quote child separation which the president fixed. Obama did infects it didn't fix it from fixed it, and then what you're talking about permanent separation. And you meet the parents that lost their kids, or, you know, and then you look at the opioid crisis that everybody says we wanna fix and this is probably a big part of it with ninety percent of heroin crosses that border. Sean. When is she gonna love America more than she hates her president. I'm sorry, Amy. Go right ahead. No. That's okay. I Karen knows. I am with somebody right now. Suzanne Stevens from North Carolina his daughter, I January twenty second next week and outcry the talking about it. It will be one year. Her her daughter at twenty two years old was found dead on the bathroom or naked with drives a needle all around her. And kissed her and promised her would not die in vain guide over overdosed. And this is the kind of thing we have a real problem with opioid abuse in this country and people don't want to talk about it. There's a stigma. That protects through what we feel like parents that were failing because our kids are on drugs, or whatever it is something that is touching lives all around us. And we have to talk about it at this border issue there directly they are directly right in human trafficking. You're part of it too. This is affecting so many lives, and these are real, humid. It's not mean, you're fat for President Trump. Stop holding people hostage manufacturing a crisis. This president just use the backdrop of the Oval Office to manufacture a crisis a manufacturing crisis. No crisis exists in anyone making the argument is most likely guilty to fear mongering and willfully misleading. The American people locals will tell him on the border. Even conservatives is that there isn't a national security crisis. The notion that we have a crisis. Their security crisis is absolute nonsense. Is this a manufactured crisis crisis said manufactured by the Trump administration? This artificial crisis of the president isn't going to justify his appropriating money for a wall that congress is unwilling to give crisis at the border. The president said there's a humanitarian crisis at the border is there. Absolutely not we have challenge. Oh, humanitarian issues or challenges for us. I don't know where people can come up with this idea the.

So the DOT has apparently on many, many, many instances replace those signs and only to have them stolen again. So they've come up with a solution. They're now just backing it up a tenth of a mile, and they're putting up the green and white sign that says mile marker four nineteen point nine. And apparently, nobody is interested in that. And they say less, you think it's just a dope thing. They've also replaced an awful lot of mile marker sixty nine.

How many lawsuits would be filed in what kind of calls with that the for the tax payers? Well, the department of Justice would defend the lawsuits that'll be several filed. I mean, there's no question that they'll be lawsuits filed era. I will tell you this. It'll be a lot of groups weighing in on it because you would use called fingerprint of the court.

And that's why I'm holding in my hand the initial draft of what our lawyers are working on. But we're anticipating litigation I think the president wins. Clearly because I don't think a judge can substitute. He is or her opinion as to what constitutes a national emergency for the president. I think that comes the separation of powers issue, a constitutional issue. I don't think a judge can do that. Absolutely. So I think it's important to keep in mind in light of the callers, call that some constitutional scholars have come down on different sides. At this precise issue. But I think most scholars who argue against the president's position are indeed mistaken because the president has inherent constitutional authority and second there are a number of statutory provisions some which we've already discussed which provide him with authority to either ask the secretary of defense or the US military to engage in projects to limit the flow of drugs and to use funds that have already been appropriated for the military that have not yet been allocated for purposes of dealing with a national emergency. When I would do is. I am not the president. But if I was the president I would declare it if he decided to declare a national emergency. I would get the whole wall Bill the whole security apparatus, not just the wall. Would if it's twenty five billion dollars. I would if you're going to do this any you do it. But a judge is not going to substitute their position for the president thought an article three judge. Has no business substituting his or her judgment for that of the president of the United States and making determinations of matters that pertain to the general welfare in the common defense.

There is going to be helping Nevada's addicted to opioids I mean, it has many specialties I really want to zero in on its work on opioids because this is such a frightening and huge problem in the state, isn't it is horrendous and without the generous support of the Matheson's we would never have been able to kick off this institute. So really investments in our community that will hopefully address the issues that many many families face around addiction. I was interested to see that the institute has an independent crisis facility since time truly is of the essence intriguing opioid abuse treatment. Isn't it it? Sure is. And we're trying to make sure that the with complementing the existing services in the community. None. So adding a whole bunch of things, but anything things in a way that the complementary to other activities that are already in existence. For example, we know that quite a few babies are addicted to opiates and our victory over in the medical center, which which is around facility. So we want to make sure that we have in new abstinence program that goes into place, and is cutting edge evidence base, we know and this has been a priority area for station Matheson is the screening of kids who are at risk because of a family members addiction. How do we address the issues and screen before that child gets to ditch good because we know addiction runs in families? So what led to this tell? Tell our audience more about the Mathewson's about the big donation. I think you said they had a child. Seizures Matheson is has had a concern about addiction and her family, and is is very public about that. And wanted to do something to address this crisis for other families, and is really focused on the familial component of addiction and making sure that that's why we're focused on kids, and we're focused on the educational system, and we're focused on screen because hopefully, we can get ahead of the curve and and stop out this this terrible condition. As you know. Of course, we we always try to look at the federal sign of issues on my program. So let me ask you this. What in your opinion is the top thing that our congressional leaders can do or should be doing to get needed help to those dealing with mental health issues on addictions. I think there's a couple of things I think I we have to make sure that the people who are addicted or getting properly cared for and getting their addiction address. Second. We have to aggression, new and better ways to manage people's because pain, an opiate addiction is the primary reason we don't wanna go down the wrong track. Here if you stop opiates you have to provide other mechanism of controlling people's pay. And I think the third thing that we is better research guy the way that we address this important issue. So how can this be addressed on Capitol Hill? I think funding certainly in the research arena. I think that the G has some amazing research programs going on making sure that we continue to. Dr federal funding for research at the highest level is very important in this condition as well as soon as on the ground. So that that Evans says create for research is implemented in the local environment..

The decrease in life expectancy is far more complicated than just an opioid epidemic

"After decades of the life expectancy rising in the US. The CDC reported this week that for the third year in a row. Life expectancy rates have declined blame his focused on drug overdoses, but the stories not that simple. This is Dr Michael Wilks with a second opinion over the past few years life expectancy has declined more than at any time since the turn of the nineteen hundreds at that time. There was a major World War. And as I have reported we were in the midst of the world's largest flu epidemic this week. One of my patients. Let's call her Stella nearly died of a opioid overdose. Luckily, her fifteen year old daughter came home from school early Stella was unconscious. But her daughter knew exactly where her mother kept the narc. Can she gave her mother a dose and called nine one one the? Decline in life expectancy has several causes. But what's clear is that the increased death rate is impacting younger and middle aged adults and many of those deaths are attributed to drug related deaths particularly opioids, but the opioid debts are themselves more complicated. Some of those deaths are due to carelessness in some of them are due to bad judgment. But clearly some of them are due to suicide attempts. In fact, suicide is a silent contributor to drug overdose deaths. Some of this is semantics if the cause of death is an opioid overdose. But the person was suicidal does it count as a drug death or a suicide and many times it's impossible to determine without a suicide note. But the suicide death rate last year in the US was the highest it has been in fifty years there were more than forty. Seven thousand suicides for Stella life had been hard. She lost her husband her home and eventually her car. She had been treated for depression and has been suicidal on and off for about a year. She and her daughter had a fight the morning of the drug overdose. In fact, that's why her daughter came home early from school. But it's not only drugs and suicide other causes of death, heart disease strokes, and diabetes have also increased and for all of these illnesses and for suicide it's important to look at high risk populations in places where there is high poverty low education rural lifestyle and poor health. Insurance death rates are higher than they are in other places and one more thought let's not forget this year's increase in the number of gun related deaths about one thousand more deaths than last year. And most of those were related to suicide. Now, the problem for Stella is that drug treatment centers are full and it's hard to find doctors who can prescribe opioid abuse medications. Let alone find access to a skilled mental health professional if we are serious about decreasing preventable causes of death. We need to take mental health far more seriously than we're currently doing. This is Dr Michael Wilks with a second opinion this podcast was made by public radio station.
