    Well they are now successfully suing manufacturers for making a legal product and selling it.
    Where is this going to stop? Cars? Guns? I didn't post an article because I am sure everyone has seen and heard about this already.

    Come on now. The big Pharma's were pimping doctors to write absurd amounts of scripts, then the Doc's following in step, started pimping the young and old, before you knew it we had a purge going on. These cuck's don't get a pass, they knew what they were doing for the Dolla, now they are gonna pay a chunk of it back, but still made a profit while people buried family and fiends by the thousands.

    i seen the damage done, by those that get addicted, and those that die, within my family. if ya cant see that, then take off the blinders..
    the company had a nice poppy plantation in Australia, to manufacture the drug, they promoted it/or pushed it, to be prescribed to patients.
    its kinda like legal meth, in the damage it does..
    aint no worst, then the chinese, sending fentenal <-[cant spell] over here to kill people.

    They are government regulated, legally approved drugs and the side effects are well known. The fact some people abuse them is not the manufacturers problem. It is the manufacturers job to sell what they make and there are a lot of people that need and benefit from the drugs and do not abuse them. My point is since this is ground breaking precedent gun manufacturers will held accountable in the same manner. How about auto maker?

    What we actually need is a good pain killer that actually works without getting people high.
    And, I don't think it's my imagination that the overdose problem got much worse once they started cracking down on the availability of the prescription drugs.
    I think designer drugs are here to stay. And people with zero self control are going to continue to kill themselves. It sucks because everyone reading this has more than likely had family or friends caught up in it.
    As far as blaming the pharmaceutical companies I think it sets a horrible precedent. And now people who actually need the drugs have to practically beg to get them if they even can get them.
    There is no magic pill to fix the problem. It's just another symptom of much larger unsolvable problems. The cash settlement won't do squat.

    Regardless if you think the companies are responsible for it or not, forcing a business that is in the business of making money to give you money is not going to correct the behavior of the business. Not much difference than you getting a speeding ticket. I'll bet that anyone who's gotten one (or more) have not adjusted their driving habits permanently because of it.

    Its just a money grab by the states. And when that dries up, they'll look for ways to get more somewhere else. Whatever happened to all of that tobacco money they got?

    This is about the way I got this figured out, just my opinion.The government gives pharmaceutical companies all kinds of money, to develop and experiment with drugs, they come up with a pain killer ,the government gives the ok through the epa or something to sell it.In return they push it out there to the doctors ,best cure since penicillin, doctor pushes it big time, to the people that need it, then people find out other uses for it ,and get hooked .All the time the government pay’s for most of the distribution through Medicaid and Medicare.Now we got a problem,to many people abusing this drug, so now the government steps up and gives all kinds of money out to help all these people get off these drugs.Here we go again ,pharmaceutical company starts pushing another drug, to get people off the first drug, they furnish food ,housing and new drugs to these poor ole soles hooked on this ole bad drug. Now the government says we are going to sue the pharmaceutical companies, for all these bad drugs they came up with , even though we approved it. Wonder where all that law suite money , will probably end up, back to the government to be cycled again, minus what went in the politicians pharmaceutical ceo’s and the lawyers pocket.What a story

    Evidently there are a bunch of Anti-capitalist liberals that will not take personal responsibility for their actions. Its always someone elses fault. They got hooked on pills because the pharmaceutical company manufactured the pills, not because they made the decision to abuse the drug. Or its the Doctors fault for prescribing the drug when the patient was in need of the medication. So now that we are this point S&W and all other gun manufacturers will be successfully sued because they made the weapon that an individual abused and used it to kill people.

    No I don't agree.

    The pharmaceutical DID indeed push the pills in the doctors offices, they ever said so before Congress.

    That makes them no different from a pusher selling illegal drugs. Does everybody on here blame the kids for getting hooked or the pusher????? Ok so do we put the kids in jail and give the pusher a free pass????

    S&W is a different ball game, it falls under the Second Amendment. BUT say S&W was to put out TV commercials showing several different gang shoot outs in Chicago showing off their guns and all the dead gang members S&W armed gangs took out then pushed their guns on gun dealers around outside Chicago. Now if THAT was to happen then hell yea S&W would be responsible. S&W made the commercial and showed the shoot outs gang against gang and pushed THEIR guns on people. S&W has done NOTHING like that.
