“Daniel Kessler and Mark McClellan (1996) found that these incentives translated into “defensive medicine”—use of precautionary treatments with minimal expected medical benefit out of fear of legal liability”

nber.org/system/files/c… “The 1990s brought a new phenomenon: the use of litigation to impose regulation. In this scenario, exec-branch agencies or even private parties sue alleged wrongdoers and obtain settlements that govern the defendant’s future behavior through a system of highly specific rules.”

Did you know that there’s a cloud based resource that was funded by the AGs through litigation funds, thats run by OSHU? I believe this was formed so anyone involved in litigation would have access to research that supported the demonization of opioids.

A 5 yr old was tortured because no one wanted to treat his pain from a compound fracture and repair. I just spoke with the dad and he’s willing to to testify. How many more will be forced to suffer?

The American College Surgeons is in bed with Pacira Pharma and gets millions in donations from them. Exparel was just FDA approved to be used in children last year. I saw this coming…. investor.pacira.com/news-releases/… Image ROTTEN

You want to know why Durbin, a congress member, is trying to influence the whole opioid issue? Because his long time chief of staff’s wife is neck-deep in lobbying for clients that directly benefit from smearing opioid pharmaceuticals for money from the billions in litigation. ImageImageImageImage I stand by my belief that any politician at this point that continues to restrict rx pain meds has some major $ skin in the game. They’re all aware of the illicit poly drug OD crisis. There’s NO EXCUSE for torturing ppl in pain other than financial gain or depravity.

October of 2017, AGs wrote letters to 15 PBMs, which were based on the cdc guidelines. No wonder ppl report issues getting RXs….portal.ct.gov/AG/Press-Relea… Here’s are the letters. I’m now understanding why CVS (along with BCBS) was allowed to be on the special voting committee for the Purdue case. A few examples in the screenshots ⬇️ Did they make a deal, I wonder?😡

Listen at 1:41:40! We need to be reaching out to Orrin Hatch ASAP. He calls out the fact that the expert witnesses (like Kolodny & Rannazzisi) and the AGs are using congress to further their narrative to completely vilify the opioid pharma industry.

@LennonMaclean And guess what I found the other day? That the interventional pain industry groups that have recommended these as SOP for cpps are using doing this on purpose and then telling the govt that it’s cheaper in the long run to do procedures (SCS’s and IT pumps) More to come on this… @LennonMaclean Letter from AGs in Sept 2017, to America’s Health Insurance Plans, “To encourage healthcare providers to prioritize non-opioid pain mgmt. options over opioid prescriptions for the treatment of chronic, non-cancer pain.” I noticed this gem from #TimDeer

I know many of you will recognize the Sandgaard name due to their non-profit group the Sandgaard foundation. Did you know their founder is the CEO of a Colorado pain device company? They formed a group to combat opioids, which also sets them up financially zynexmed.investorroom.com/2021-07-29-Zyn… Here are some screenshots gathered from various sites that help highlight my concerns: zynex.com/company/

Our govt wants to restrict new scripts for pain meds to only those with low risk, based on machine learning. @tomcoderre, asst sec of mental health at SAMSA, is involved in this. Where is the ethics committee?

Just so everyone knows, private ins. companies and CMS joined with the feds to go after opioids and doctors, with $ from tort litigation being the end-game. For example: BCBS Michigan supplied the dea under-covers with fake mris to trick MDs & then when they rxed, arrested them! Now BCBS gets to sue opioid manufacturers for billions. The corruption is unbelievable. We have MDs sitting in prison so companies could get rich from these lawsuits.

@ZachWritesStuff Roger Chou works for OSHU and contracts to do the systematic reviews on opioids for AHRQ. He’s worked closely with PROP since they formed in 2011. He was also one of the 3 authors of the 2016 gl, as well as a part of the board of sci. councilors for cdc that approve the gls 🤦🏻‍♀️ @ZachWritesStuff So he chooses which studies are considered in to go into the GLs, writes them, and then also gets to approve them. I uncovered the fact that the Oregon AG has been funneling opioid litigation money into not only OSHU (and this was in 2015) but also into Oregon’s ORCrm state grp.
