The Sacklers Want Immunity From the Opioid Crisis

"Trials underway in New York for Purdue Pharma, the maker of OxyContin. Members of Sackler family who owned the drug company have testified they bear no responsibility for the nation's deadly opioid epidemic. As part of the bankruptcy deal, the Sackler czar demanding immunity from lawsuits for themselves and for a network of companies and organizations. NPR addiction correspondent Brian Mann has been following this Brian you've reported before the Sackler want to clean slate for themselves, no more opioid lawsuits. But this deal in particular would also shelter a bunch of other people and companies from liability. How would that work? This has been a major flashpoint in this trial A and it was again yesterday as part of produce farmers bankruptcy settlement The sack Lear's who say they've done nothing wrong, have agreed to pay $4.3 billion to fund addiction treatment programs, but the Sackler want something really big. In return, their attorneys have drawn up this single spaced list of individuals, organizations and companies. This list runs for 12 full pages. If this deal is finalized, everyone on the list would be sheltered permanently from lawsuits linked to opioids and oxy cotton and from a wide range of of other lawsuits. And why does that matter? So this is interesting. Critics say the Sackler is in their empire are at the center of one of the biggest man made public health disasters in US history. Hundreds of thousands of people have died in this epidemic. Their company has pleaded guilty to federal crimes linked to the OxyContin business. First in 2000, and seven and again last year again, the Sackler is deny wrongdoing and have never been charged. But there are still big unanswered questions about how this prescription opioid crisis happened and who in the sack Lear's network might be liable. For some of the harm and let me give you

Former Walmart Pharmacists Say Company Ignored Red Flags As Opioid Sales Boomed

"An npr investigation has found that pharmacists. Working for walmart tried for years to raise the alarm about the company's sale of highly addictive opioids. walmart says it broke no laws and acted responsibly. The company faces lawsuits including a complaint. By the justice department. Walmart has been an npr underwriter which we cover like other company and npr addiction correspondent. Brian man has the story to understand. The rule pharmacists and pharmacy chains like walmart played in the opioid crisis. It helps to look at one walmart. Customer a woman named christina dine. She was in her twenties when a doctor ohio prescribed her. Large doses of powerful opioids at the highest. I was prescribed three thirty milligram. Oxy code on a day with two fifteen milligram. Koto kind of thrown in there for quote unquote breakthrough pain. Dine had been diagnosed with bositis painful but not the sort of ailment were a highly addictive narcotic is generally recommended under federal law after a doctor writes the prescription especially one like dines that poses a serious risk of addiction. The pharmacist is also required to play an important gatekeeper role. It's a big part of their job to make sure powerful drugs are only dispensed when there's a legitimate medical purpose dine. Says she had her. Opioid prescriptions filled repeatedly for two years at a number of pharmacies including her local walmart. No one warned her about the danger. I never once had a pharmacist or any other pharmacy staff question. It questioned me. Ask me any questions whatsoever. Dine became addicted to pain pills and later heroin. This was twenty twelve and at first she didn't realize she was part of an opioid epidemic. Already killing tens of thousands of people year by the time dine fell into addiction. Walmart was doing business shipping. Hundreds of millions of opioid pills every year to its chain of pharmacies. The country a shawnee sheeran is a pharmacist. Who saw this happening in walmart. Stores where he worked in rural michigan. He says there were often lines of people. When the store opened waiting to buy opioids i see that bishops. Fifteen to twenty are already lined up to get their prescriptions. Filled cheering told npr. He saw things that scared people who looked healthy. We're getting a lot of pain pills. They were traveling hundreds of miles to fill their prescriptions at his walmart store when he tried to call doctors to find out what was happening. He often couldn't get them on the phone. He was so troubled. He sent warnings to walmart's corporate headquarters in arkansas. So i send the email to walmart executive levels. And i explain them that. Their large number of controlled substance and the narcotics dispensed not for genuine purpose. Which are for distribution on the street. Cheering says nothing happened to fix the problem. And that made him angry so he kept trying warning warnings managers at walmart. Pharmacies seemed to be feeding a black market for opioid pills. They told me. Do not reach out to the da or do not. Call the police if you're going to do so your employment. Going to be terminated immediately records show sheer did contact local police and the drug enforcement administration. He was suspended by walmart. And later fired. He sued the company under a federal whistleblower. Statute a case still pending. Npr tried to ask wal mart about this. The company declined repeated interview requests and didn't respond to a list. Detailed questions it turns out sheeran wasn't the only pharmacist. Raising alarms internal company documents made public in lawsuits against walmart. Show pharmacists all over. The country kept warning. Company executives about opioids and about pill mill doctors sending patients to walmart. There was no oversight from a top of out the over dispensing of controlled substances. This is a pharmacist. Who worked for walmart in the south. Who says he left a couple of years ago voluntarily take another job. Npr agreed not to use his name because he fears a family member. Still employed by walmart. Could face retribution. He says walmart pharmacies kept doing business with doctors. Even when there were clear signs. Things weren't right. They were primary care doctors. They weren't like paint management doctors. They weren't oncologists and they were prescribing. Large amounts of opiates now again as part of their gatekeeper role. All pharmacists have the authority to reject suspicious. Prescriptions and walmart points out in public statements. This does happen at its pharmacies but as walmart shipped and sold hundreds of millions of pills a year industry experts in the pharmacists. Npr interviewed said. There was enormous pressure at walmart to say yes to dispense opioid pills quickly. You know they the walmart didn't make it so that it was easy for you to say no or to do the right thing. Another thing. we've learned from court documents filed in lawsuits against walmart. Is that pharmacists. Weren't the only ones raising alarms. Federal regulators also kept telling walmart it system for managing opioids and keeping patients. Safe wasn't good enough under pressure from the. Da walmart signed an agreement. Way back in twenty eleven promising national reforms the pharmacist. We talked who said things never improved. Again walmart declined. Npr's interview requests but the company has created a public campaign to explain. its opioid practices. This video posted last year. On walmart's website. We all have a responsibility to dispense opioid appropriately. And so when somebody comes star pharmacy and we're going to dispense them a medication we're gonna do it responsibly. We wanna make sure that they're safe and legal filings. Walmart attorneys acknowledged the. Da warned the company about red flags patterns of prescribing behavior. That could mean opioid prescriptions. Were unsafe or illegal. Walmart's has those advisories work legally binding and says government guidance on opioids was often confusing and contradictory. The company also argues. It was the government's job not walmart's to crack down on dangerous pill mill doctors. These arguments will be tested in courts around the country as lawsuits against walmart and other pharmacy chains move. People like christina. Dine will be watching. After filling her first prescription for oxy codeine pills back in twenty twelve dina says it took years to put her life back together. I i got sober and two thousand fifteen. After my daughter's father overdosed died. A kind of went in and out. I struggled for a bitch but I've been sober. Since two thousand seventeen dine is doing better now working as a recovery nurse helping others with addiction but more than two hundred and thirty thousand americans have died from overdoses. Linked directly to prescription opioids. Brian man npr news.

Music from Russian Operas

"Hello I'm Naomi Lewin welcome to classics, for? Kids That's the pollen is from Modesto oxy's Opera Boris, Godunov, today music from operas by some other Russian composers. They call me Kyle Glinka, the father of Russian classical music. You hardly ever see Glinka opera Muslim and Ludmilla, but you hear the overture all the time. Well at least loosely, Ludmila has been performed. That's more than you can say for some operas. Lada flopped twice the first time a Russian theatre s four different composers to collaborate writing a combination opera ballet that Malaysia was never performed. Then rimsky-korsakov who was one of the four composers recycled the music he'd written into a Milonga of his own that Lada lasted all of six performances. If you've been Mada is a funny title. Sergei Prokofiev opera called the love for three oranges. The love for three oranges is about a prince who finds the princess he loves inside an orange one of three oranges. Love is a big problem for the title character in an opera by Tchaikovsky called Eugene on Yagan. A girl named Tatyana in love with you gene on Yagan but he doesn't fall in love with her until it's too late and she's married to someone else the two of them always seemed to be meeting up at a ball. So Tchaikovsky put plenty of dance music including this waltz into his author. Part of Modesto Resorts Skis Opera Boris good enough takes place in a Polish court where they do a Polish dance, the pullen his. Another Russian opera with famous dances in it is by Alexander Barra Dean Borodino was a professor of chemistry who only got to write music in his spare time. His only opera was prince eager in which the prince eager gets captured while fighting the pile-up Ziems. The best known part of the opera is when the Pelosi enslaves entertain prince e core by singing. Dancing. Ardine died before he could finish prints eager. But two of his friends who knew how he wanted it to sound finished it for him. One of those friends was Nikolai rimsky-korsakov whose flight of the Bumblebee is far more famous than the tale of Czar Sultan, the opera for which he wrote it. You can definitely hear a flying insect in the flight of the Bumblebee. From flying bees to dancing pelotons, I hope you've enjoyed this week's music from Russian operas.

How Do Glow Sticks Work?

"Brain stuff. This is Christian Sagar you have seen glow sticks before I. Bet they bring a festive glow to Halloween trick or treating and New Year's eve celebrations, and they are a useful gear for explorers from scuba divers to spinnakers. When you find a bunch of people gathered at a party in the dark at least a few of them will probably be wielding glow sticks. But what the heck are these things and how do they work? Well, glow sticks are powered by process called Cama luminescence don't let the name scare you luminescence is just a fancy word for any emission of light not caused by heating we see luminescence and stuff like TV's neon. Signs and firefly's the chem luminescence in glow sticks is a pretty simple reaction caused by mixing chemical compounds. Compounds are made up of different elements bonded together in specific proportions so that they can't be mechanically separated. It takes a chemical reaction to sort out for example, the oxygen from the hydrogen and water. When you mix a compound with other stuff, you can set off that reaction and as the atoms rearrange themselves either absorb all release energy. If you look inside a glow stick, you'll see that there's a small glass vile in the tube. This file typically contains a hydrogen peroxide solution called the activator it's floating in a solution containing a compound called phenyle oxalate. Ester and a fluorescent dye you still with me. Okay. When you snap a glow, stick the vial breaks in the Hydrogen Peroxide reacts with the phenyle oxalate Ester creating to other compounds phenyle and a pair oxy acid ester. Okay. Still with me again. Okay. This para oxy acid stuff is unstable. So it decomposes and produces additional finol. It also produces a cyclic Perry compound which decomposes to carbon dioxide. This decomposition releases energy to the die the electrons in the atoms jump to a higher level than fall back down releasing energy in the form of light the other in the fluorescent dye, determine the color of this light all this happens within moments of snapping. And shaking your glow stick depending on which compounds are used, the chemical reaction can continue for anywhere from just a few minutes to hours warmer temperatures will accelerate the reaction making the stick glow brighter. But for a shorter amount of time when it's cooler, the reaction will slow down making the light dimmer, which means that if you want to preserve your light stick, put it in the freezer overnight, it won't stop the process, but it will slow it down and drag out the reaction. So it turns out that there's some pretty nifty science behind the humble glow stick check it out the next time you're scuba diving partying or you know whatever it is you.

The next year was ski left the army to become a composer. pollock was only a couple of years older than me. And he was very passionate about developing a Russian style of classical music for years. He and four other Russian composers met every Saturday night to study music together. Bollock didn't actually know that much about music but that didn't stop him from dissecting and criticizing the other's throat. He complained so much about one piece of Zork Skis that Missouri Ski finally stopped working with him. was. Exceed thought the composition he called his witches was pretty good. Then he was right we know those which is as a night on bald, mountain? The story behind a night on bald mountain may well be one of the Russian folk tales resort ski learned from his nanny while he was growing up quite a few of those legends turned up later on in his music. When Muzar oxy was twenty four. There were political changes in Russia and his family lost most of its land and money since McKee wasn't making any money composing he had to get a job. He went to work for the government, but he kept on composing was arc ski loved writing for the voice. Lots of songs including one about a very pesky insect a league. uh-huh. And Ski also wrote several operas. His masterpiece is a Russian czar or ruler who lived in the fifteen hundreds Boris enough. A. No Moose and Squirrel Boris good enough is not related to buddies bad enough. But now you know where the folks who wrote the rocky and full winco cartoons came up with the name.

You can do you sound like a twisted fortune cookie. except. So, I reached out to Debbie when I thought I was sick and she immediately called the. She was one of the first people that I had seen posting publicly about being sick with covid nineteen. I don't know if she realized how important it was for me to hear from somebody who actually had it. So I wanted to reconnect with Debbie now that we've both recovered and I called her identity I'm Maria joining from Brooklyn. Yes. So officially welcomed in the thick and. We're talking about surviving in battling cove it and I remember when I first got sick. I. Was having a lot of anger and denial and anxiety and rage. You told me that this thing was gonna come in waves that I needed to be prepared. You told me at that point you were already in recovery and you're like I'm cleaning all the time and I was like, Oh my God, how can she even lift her arm? And so I'm wondering what was it that made? You understand how important it would be for you to. Talk to someone like me when I started to feel really sick it didn't feel like anything that I ever had before it was kind of weird and it was a collective thing that was happening in my house all at once with all of my family members, I always feel like it takes a village. I actually had people that were having similar symptoms as me and getting sick at the same time as me and we sort of formed this. Co vid nineteen like reach out center to each other going Oh my God I haven't have you got an oxy meter. Have you taken this herb? A lot of people are just suggesting things and things that they thought might help them but I really was so grateful for actually people reaching out to me that I'm also kind mommy like that like when people get it and they're confused. Because I had gone through it is well, I just wanted to be there for you and I had talked it on my instagram because there were no people talking about it and I remember you saying that you were getting backlash and so what was that like Debbie to not only get this but then you're very open hearted person people were coming at you during this may first of all, I was being told by my doctors that I know that I'm friendly with I'm sorry. Jeb. But I only have a couple of tests that were given to me and you just don't fit the criteria and I thought to myself. I'm taking the subway two to three times a day. I was in Italy, all of December and part of January I've been on airplanes. How do I not meet criteria? I have every symptom so we will when people started coming on. Instagram I mean first of all, this disease has been politicized at this point, which is wrong. So I, just felt there was an incredible. Amount of ignorance of arrogance of denial of people going like you know Oh. Gosh. You know it's only for like the people in. You know nursing homes. So you know like you when I see what's happening in the rest of the country where my heart. Goes you and I? We did. We survived there's definitely an awareness of kind of survivor's guilt for sure. I don't have any guilt. I'm thrilled. A great way to. End. It. There's no guilt here because I thought I would die my lungs are not the strongest they never have been since child I have chronic bronchitis. I've been a smoker most of my life and I had pneumonia a few years ago. So I thought I was going to die and I, have a family I have a lust for life and I hate needles because I survive I went and gave a huge bag of my convalescent plasma. I try to spread the word because this is far from over. People need to buckle up because it's going to be a rough road and we need the tools to know to be getting tested. Not think that because you have the antibodies necessarily that you're safe when you do get sick what are the things that can help you

He's like, you can always buy a bigger jet, Matt. So you. You and I think we share a lot of of values. I think we're maybe I'm a little difference.

We have thousands of people that Email and into info threats, and I'm show dot com. And we answer the questions and it just keeps growing and know I'm into that. And so like with advertisers, you know, I'm very selective about who we allowed advertise. I don't travel anymore. I don't like traveling freaks me, get motion sickness, and I also have like a anxiety when people move my stuff, you know. So I've kind of thirty seven hit my goals and I'm kinda just, you know, we're franchising elephant in the room. The actually the Oxy fresh business that I've worked with with with my partner, jumped Barnet's doing great. I mean, all the things are up and they're working. And so I'm kind of like really spending less time on the business stuff and more time on like life up. Station, how do you balance that? I mean, do you spend like how does your calendar look now? I mean, are you do you work? Because I don't. You start a business, you're probably working. We started Vince loosens you're probably working eighty hours a week, right? I mean, maybe ninety. Yeah. So how does your look out? It's busy. I mean, I started another business this year and between it and my business stack, if I'm very busy. Yeah, it's my calendars pretty full every single day. How busy do you want it to be? Like how many hours a week do you wanna work in that calendar? I enjoy working. I mean, if if I had nothing to do at night other like work than watch TV like, I don't know. I I have like some kind of sickness I like to work I, this is this is my challenge. I've five kids, it's like I love my kids, and so I I have, I make myself turn off work at a certain time. Every day made says, I just love it in its, I'm good at it and the more I do it, the better I get. And so it's kind of that addictive cycle. It's almost like if you're in the NFL you get hurt a lot, you get hit, you get bruises, but you like playing. So these guys will play, you know, just beat themselves up. What does confidence loop to right? Like you get more confidence and more coffins the better you get. So I want to ask you, what are your or your your your boundaries like you and your wife have agreed on as far as like days of week you can work or hours? Or do you have certain rules like, you know, like, Matt, you can't work till four AM every day, or is there like you're done working at five. You have a certain time in the day you start or just. Walk us through your daily routine. I usually don't work from like five PM till eight pm after the kids go to bed. Sometimes I'll work a lot of times I'll work, but yeah, like in the evening when the kids are up on around and all that stuff, I don't work and I don't work that much on the weekend. I try not to. So now you're building stack of by and you're involved in multiple ventures, but I want to focus on stack affi- for a moment. Could you tell us about what stack affi- is and what problems it solves in the marketplace? Yeah. So in short, we do application performance monitoring. So what that really means is, let's say you're trying to order pizza tonight and you're using pizza. It's website if whatever reason, pizza Hut's website doesn't work. He gets an error at slow. You move on, you go to Domino's Papa. John's Morale's right? Well, pizza needs. Knowing that happens, they need to know win their app, a slow, white slow, who it's affecting all those things.

"But I have one final question for Matt with Oxy fresh in Denver. What makes Matt the Oxy fresh franchisee in Albany, such a great member of the team. What what? Why is he been such a great addition to the Oxy fresh team and really brag on mad? I mean, what's what's making Matt such a great member to the Oxy fresh franchisee team. Yeah, one thing he did not mention, which I think is, you know, should be noted that started his franchise. You know, as kind of an owner, you know, Manjit because he knew maintain a full-time job. And then you know, you had a goal of basically taking that and being able to grow his franchise and be able to leave his job at six months. And he was able to do that about three and a half months. So he was able to celebrate to a point where he felt comfortable Bridget breaking off from his job going fulltime, AUSSIE fresh. That's a pretty hard thing to do sometimes, but he was able to put the effort in the times that he had and day to grow his business. I think that one is probably the most important when you get home or you're trying to build, you know, multiple streams of income, it's delegating your time and those things that are important to allow that to happen. He's very, very good at that. The other is that you know, he sees opportunity and he goes after it. He's got. He started with one franchise. Now he owns three well, full territories. So here's a. Grow is that's an inch leave larger now because of hitting aggressiveness. He's absolutely one of the leaders are franchise in terms of following the system is a resource for our franchisees because they're reaching him saying, how are you doing this? You know, we're just getting started and all he does is say, you know, what are you doing and your day, right? All those things are important to, you know, him being able to be a resource and being a very good Docker auspicious. He's basically done what you know.

"You prefer to go to Oxy fresh dot com direct well, then you are a rebel, but either way you're gonna probably talk to hat in the team, but what's the first step? If somebody wants to look into buying Oxy fresh franchise. Yeah, just go online just like you said and out your information that way, we know where you're from and have the information to to reach out to you and and just doesn't cost you anything to go through that discovery process with us. We're gonna give you all the documents and just explain everything. And I think most importantly that that initial step is really understanding you as potential franchisee what you're looking to do, what you're looking to accomplish, what your background is because that will really start to tailor the conversations around you and if this business model will work. So you know if you're looking for a business that like you said is proven that understands technology that is continuing to grow. You know, just start to have the conversation with us and, and we'll see if there's a good fit now. Matt Klein with Oxy fresh in Denver, Colorado. My final question I have z. might wanna win up with a question, but who is not a good fit, talked to so many people you can. You can play. It could be politically correct. I respect that you can go in there and you can just. Tell us like cle- everybody's a good fit, and I respect that answer. All I'm saying, I'm sure you've talked maybe not even you other people. You know, I'm sure they'd talked to somebody and they go, you're not going to be a good fit. This person's not going to be what kind of person would be a great fit to join the Oxy fresh team and what kind of personality type is not the right fit to buy Oxy fresh. Sure. So you know a good fit for us as anyone that's got drive and anyone that can, you know, take what we have and and utilize the system and and work with us to get to a to a common goal. You know, when people look at themselves in the mirror, I think everyone really has a true understanding of themselves. You know, have you spent your time, you know, improving your life and going from maybe the bottom of corporate ladder to the middle, or maybe even the top and been able to have some success there, or are you always, you know, looking at someone and saying, you know what this guy screwed me or, you know, this situation wasn't ideal for me or you know, I just can't catch a break. I mean, those are to be honest, those are hard things because at the end of day, you gotta look at yourself in the mirror and you gotta understand that you know specifically the franchise. It's a two way street. If you're not doing your part, it's not gonna matter and the same thing for the franchising company. So you know a good bit for us as driven can follow the system. I can't tell you how important that is. Don't buy a franchise. If you're going to do the opposite. What the franchise Jess. All.

"What is basically anywhere between the thirty and fifty thousand dollar piece of equipment to to actually clean your carpet and do do your jobs. So I had already had a truck, all firemen, own trucks. It's just a fireman thing. Already had a truck. So I was like, okay, I'm halfway there with that and they're all green nontoxic option. And yeah, just look good. So I got talking to them in here. We are. So when you bought the Oxy fresh, there was probably a lot of things that happened between the time that you thought about buying Oxy fresh and the time that you bought an Oxy fresh. I mean, you're a firefighter that's something you could do overnight. It requires thoughtfulness. Training preparation requires a certain level of diligence to become a firefighter. So when you decided, you know, hey, I'm interested in in looking into Oxy fresh. What was the process like for you from the time you reached out to Oxford fresh to the time that you decided to actually sign on the line to actually purchase Oxy fresh territory right there in the San Francisco area. So the process was was actually very positive on it. It included a whole lot of phone calls in questions and a lot of contact with the main the front office there over in Denver, and my point of contact was a gentleman named Chris and toll, and he was on the phone with me a lot because I had a lot of questions and you know, buying into a franchise or any business. For that matter, it requires a heck of a commitment and a lot of money financially, you know. So it's not something we can easily just jump into. So the questions were were often and frequent for Chris. So it was a lot of phone time. A lot of online work. A lot of thinking, you know how it's going to how I would work my schedule with my fire department schedule, and yeah, so it just really was a lot of soul searching and questioning, and then talking. Other franchisees, they give me a bunch of phone numbers, contact list of who to call to to ask about. You know what? What running Oxy fresh, like in what kind of jobs there were getting in, how how busy they were, if they were making any money or not. So I was able to talk to several franchisee somewhere successful, some work, and that was that was interesting to get to views. So that's what that's what it was like before I actually signed on the dotted line. We went up there for three day discovery days, what they call it an and that that was enlightening as well. That's where they show you the process. That's where you meet everybody over at the main office. And it's it's awesome. It's a very, very, very positive experience. What? What from your perspective, because you whenever somebody decides to buy an Oxy fresh franchise, they're buying.
