The Sackler name is plastered on institutes or schools of medicine at Cornell, Columbia toughs, George Washington, McGill and Tel Aviv university's. There are also one of this country's most secretive families and part of their secretiveness comes from the fact that their fortune has been made from the sale of Oxycontin, the Sackler family owns Purdue pharma and their main drug Oxycontin has made them tens of billions of dollars since it was introduced in the nineteen nineties actually content is at the center of a national opioid epidemic. That's killed estimated three hundred thousand people. Since the late nineties now protesters along with some state officials and plaintiff's lawyers believe that the Sackler family should start paying the price for some of the havoc that the aggressive and over marketing of this drug produced, and why are these protesters going after the Sackler family right now in particular, there has been a almost two decade history of lawsuits against proof armor as well as other drug companies.

"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.

"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?.

"Unfortunately, a lot of the previous litigation was settled the documents were sealed I was fortunate enough to get a voluminous report that that the Justice department had done back in two thousand and six when they're about to prosecute top executives of producer for felonies. And without those documents show is at the Sackler is were aware allegedly aware that this drug was being abused was being abused much earlier than the company reported they'd gotten field reports from sales reps Purdue through the years has gone to great lengths to create. What apparently now is a myth that the Sackler were not involved with this companies that they were some benevolent people who took the money from legitimate drug sales and bestowed on museums and medical schools and so forth. At one point in time Purdue even put out a statement saying that the Sackler held, quote, no management positions, ROY totally apparently untrue. Like many statements for do has made over the years. In fact, as Christine was saying, they were definitely involved. They were deeply involved. They were micromanaging the operations they were giving up the prophet. So you know, this wall that Purdue has spent tens of millions of on to create this public relations Mirage is starting to fall apart. And we're now starting to glimpse the truth, and no so Christine, there's so many parts here that we spend quite a bit of time talking about just want to highlight another one. So for example, the Massachusetts complaint alleges that around two thousand seven the Sackler and two thousand seven zero critical date here, and we'll talk a little bit more about why that is. But that the Sackler is wanted to separate themselves from the mounting legal risks that came with their business selling Oxy con. John and the complaint suggests that there are emails that say that they wanted to hire a loyal CEO or perhaps even sell the company, and if they couldn't sell the company begin taking profits out and and paying the family directly now from two thousand seven to roughly two thousand eighteen the complaint says it outlines a figure a number about how much in payouts of Purdue Purdue profits went to the Sackler family. What's that that total number total dollars? You remember? Yeah. It's pretty astonishing four billion dollars with a B each quarter. They would get tens of millions of dollars at told us up to four billion dollars. These are members of the board. Right. They're controlling members of the board making the decision to draw the prophets out and pay the family directly. Well, and keep in mind repeatedly. They said it still wasn't enough. There was all this pressure that they weren't meeting expectations some of the sales reps. And so they wanted even more. Than that. And vice a couple other plans to make sure that they increase their sales. I should say clearly that we did reach out to Purdue pharma and record it representatives of the Sackler family and asked them to join us this hour, they declined they pointed us back to a statement that they released on January thirty first so just last week and berry Meyer in that statement, Purdue pharma says Massachusetts seeks to publicly vilify Purdue it's executives employees and directors while unfairly undermining the important work. We have taken to address the opioid addiction crisis by taking out of context snippets from tens of millions of documents and grossly distorting their meaning the complaint is riddled with demonstrably inaccurate allegations. Does Purdue have a point there? I mean, we're talking about a major company whose communications over many years does. Amount to tens of millions of documents. They're saying that Moore. Healy the admixtures attorney general is crafting a a fiction that serves her aunt her needs. What do you think?.

"Dot org. He's also author of the book painkiller an empire of deceit and the origin of America's opioid epidemic. Barry Meyer, it's good to talk with you again. Thank you, make no though, you're interruption makes me feel very old or let's just say persistent and following a very important story in. A American history and in the lives of millions of Americans. So so Christine lemme I start with you here because as of late last week, we finally obtained a fully unredacted copy of this complaint that was filed by the Massachusetts attorney general against Purdue pharma, an individual members of the Sackler family. So all of its there in they're in its multi hundred pages. What are some of the most striking things we now know about what Massachusetts is alleging individual members of the Sackler family are said to have done or contributed to regarding the opioid epidemic. The lawsuit really eliminates details of eat particular Sackler family, how they were involved in how they may decisions. There's least I think seventeen current and former executives as well as the Sackler 's that are named in this suit, and what the suit alleges is that each family member was intimately involved in the decision. Some more board members some played active roles in making sure they develop. Plans to target the vulnerable to increase the of strength of Oxycontin, as well as to bribe even doctors to prescribe even more of Oxycontin, one of the biggest people mentioned in this document is Richard Sackler. He is the former chairman and CEO of Purdue pharma the documents show how obsessed he was was sales. How much he couldn't let go of determining how much each sales rep was making so repeatedly he would get weekly reports on what doctors were the top sellers. What sells reps were doing. In fact, he didn't think that people were making enough money that he even went out with sales reps and went door to door encouraging to sell even more of the Oxycontin, right ended the depth of his alleged involve involvement here, and I'm gonna say alleged over and over again because information out of a complaint from the Massachusetts attorney general I mean, there's parts of it as you're mentioning that that alleged he even wanted to go out. On sales visits to be sure. That or at least get a sense of about whether or not Purdue pharma sales reps were pushing those higher doses of Oxycontin in in in satisfactory ways. Yeah, he was really wanting to be involved in. I think there was some nervousness on the part of other people internally at Purdue pharma like wait a second. We got to be careful with what he's gonna say. But ultimately, he was constantly pressuring the sales reps divisions, including Boston's he he felt like people aren't making the cut and some of his regional sales directors even threatened to start firing some of these cells reps because they weren't making the cut as far as how many prescriptions were being written by doctors. Okay. So Barry Meyer. You have been falling the story for years is there anything new that stands out to you. In terms of what the messages attorney attorney general's alleging in her complaint. Yes, there are couple of things that are striking. But let me just put them into context. And that is that we. A law about what produce doing? We should have known more about what Purdue and the Sackler were doing..

The pharmaceutical giant slabs flagship product Oxycontin is the focus of hundreds of lawsuits in dozens of states. It's taken a personal toll as renowned photographer. Nan Goldin told WB you are having been addicted toxic content. I have a personal vendetta against the secretaries. Because I know how hard they worked to get this drug out there. How hard they sold it like any good drug dealers. And as mentioned there are more than thirty five states suing Purdue pharma, the latest suit comes from Massachusetts where the state's attorney general alleges through emails and company documents that members of the Sackler family personally and directly pushed sales reps to mislead doctors. Steer patients to higher dose. Ages and pocket prophets in the billions of dollars. Now. Purdue pharma calls the complaint, a baseless, quote vilification of the Sackler lers, but this hour on point we'll take a closer look at what's alleged and revealed in the latest lawsuit against Purdue pharma, the Sackler family and allegations that they fueled America's opioid crisis. And you can join us have you been affected by the opioid crisis.
