I’ve wondered why Natl Harm Redux coalition & DPA w/partnered with a film & outreach program that promotes re-installing the 2016 cdc gls (according to leader Jamie Boyle) & publicizing a stigmatizing film aimed at demonizing rx opioids, while advocating for safe injection sites.

I wonder if it has anything to do with the fact these two sit on the board of directors for Natl HR Coalition. Also, DPA NY has long supported Alexis Pleus from TruthPharm, who helped Nan with her Sackler litigation publicity stunts. These groups are harming ppl who use drugs.

“Winning the War on Opioids: A Behind the Scenes Look at The Largest and Most Complex Deal In The History of Jurisprudence”
“How US DOJ & Trial Lawyers circumvented public consent to create a work-around ban on rx opioids thru mass tort litigation.”… “A nationwide solution. If you impose serious restrictions in one community, but not the next, offenders simply move their operations. By getting all states & all communities on board, it created a truly nationwide solution to a public health crisis.”

So I figured out why Barry was so intent on obfuscating the pain pts’ complaints about his reporting: he’s a niche investigative journalist that covers big class-action litigation, seemingly erring on the side of plaintiffs, which includes billion $ firms. #LitigationNarrative Also really interesting afa #BarryMeier and his relationship with the prosecutor in the 2007 Purdue case.…

The real cause of the opioid related death explosion isn’t initial exposure to opioids. It’s separating ppl from their safer supply, be it from a MD or from a street source. Going after pharma/supply only made this worse b/c then the solution was to cut everyone off and stop RXs.
@US_Muckraker So IOW, when cops and public health depts (cause they’re partnered now in this endeavor) take out ppl supplying the drugs they deem “highly addictive”, they’re not just trying to ruin the lives of the “dealer” figure, they’re openly aiming to hurt the end recipient of the drug.

Daniel Clauw is retaliating against scientific criticism, and making very non-evidence based generalizations conflating all causes of pain as one (that doesn’t respond to opioids), which reinforces how his non-opioid industry $ causes very biased misinfo. Notice he flashed his disclosure slide so no one would have time to read it. That seems intentional, esp b/c most of the time, researchers leave the slide up long enough that it doesn’t appear to be a part of some subliminal message 💀 Image

Prohibition groomers are pee testimg kids and entering them into a drug-free school club, based on their urine screen. They also get rewards, like cookies (I’m dying here y’all 💀) With parent consent, of course 🙄… All I could think about here was “why can’t the kids be in it without the urine screens?” Imo this is part of normalizing making US citizens comfortable with peeing in a cup and getting rewarded based on the results. I’m sure the lab companies love this. @urbanfatbiker

Are you all aware that this insurance company (also works with DEA/CMS to go after MDs that rx opioids) has been following pts after their MD’s license is taken by DEA, to see what happens a year later? Look what they measured: $ (1st pic). #ORRP #Pain

I dug deeper. Now I’m enraged. Our CDC is collaborating w/this payer as a part of #ORRP & the payer is using the program to see how much money they save by working with law enforcement to go after drs. Read it and weep. #Highmark…

At 30 mins in, you’ll hear testimony about something called an “immediate suspension order”. This is the admin tool that DEA used to take away Dr Bockoff’s DEA license & take his assets, w/o having to file charges. #DEACenteredCare #Suicide And this is the same hearing that billionaire law-firm attorneys used as part of their cases. THIS shows how the #LitigationNarrative has had and is still having a direct, deadly effect on patients’ ability to access and maintain medical care related to rx opioids.

Any #HarmReduction group that co-opts with #MichaelBotticelli has completely sold out for money. Bet that. You all wouldn’t believe how much this one individual has screwed over the entire nation of ppl who use drugs for the past 20 yrs. That includes pain pts/rec/and addx pts.🤬 High-grade opioids? These are not high-doses. These are doses that are appropriate for those with a tolerance.
