Walmart accused of fueling the opioid crisis in the US.

Walmart has been accused Tuesday of contributing to the deadly opioid epidemic in the US.

Based on a years-long investigation, the largest pharmacy chain and wholesale drug distributors in the country filled thousands of invalid prescriptions and failed to report suspicious orders of opioids and other drugs placed by its pharmacies.

The federal authorities allege “hundreds of thousands of violations” of the Controlled Substances Act, and are seeking billions of dollars in penalties.

As one of the largest pharmacy chains and wholesale drug distributors in the country, Walmart had the responsibility and the means to help prevent the diversion of prescription opioids. Instead, for years, it did the opposite … This unlawful conduct contributed to the epidemic of opioid abuse throughout the United States,” said Jeffrey Bossert Clark, the acting chief of Justice’s Civil Division.

Timothy Shea, acting head of the Drug Enforcement Administration, said the retail giant’s pharmacies routinely filled “illegitimate” prescriptions.

Too many lives have been lost because of oversight failures and those entrusted with responsibility turning a blind eye,” Shea said.

As the operator of its pharmacies, Walmart knowingly filled thousands of controlled substance prescriptions that were not issued for legitimate medical purposes or in the usual course of medical practice, and that it filled prescriptions outside the ordinary course of pharmacy practice,” federal officials said.

A new blast for Walmart… A good clean-up would be needed and taking out one of the biggest dealers of opioids would be a first step. More opioid news on Strange Sounds and Steve Quayle.

    Canada Plans January 8 As National Day For Air Disaster Victims As Lawsuit Against Iran Moves Ahead

    Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Wednesday [December 23] announced plans for a national day for remembrance of air-disaster victims to coincide with the date of the downing of Ukraine’s flight PS752 by surface-to-air missiles fired by Iranian Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) on January 8 2020.

    “To the families and friends who will be spending the holidays without a loved one: you will be in our thoughts,” Trudeau said Wednesday.

    In a separate development, Ontario Superior Court of Justice accepted the basis of a class action lawsuit against the Islamic Republic brought by families of victims, on the basis of Canada’s anti-terrorism laws. This was the first action the court undertook in the class action lawsuit and it accepted the case based on the plaintiff’s complaint that Iran committed a terrorist act.

    Iran and Canada have not had any formal diplomatic relations since Ottawa shut down its embassy in Tehran in 2012 after attacks on the British embassy in Iran. Canada cited Iran’s material support to the Syrian regime during the Syrian Civil War, breaching its nuclear commitments and threats to Israel as well as fears for the safety of Canadian diplomats as reasons for severing diplomatic relations with Iran.

    Mohsen,

    “Weird people shop there…”

    LOL you are right indeed. Made in China means get cancer. Also you need change them often as much as so you pay double or triple. Some can foods may be. Sucks or blanket all of them has bad smell, it seems worn already lol…..F Made in China.

  3. Walmart all is made in China i do not support it. In Canada used to say made in Canada long time ago. I do not buy from Walmart since weird people shop there ..
    Right now ER is closed many of them North America. 0 beds.They mix Corona Patient with Non Corona Patients and Nurse must see both of them. So the patient have no COVID 20 will infected. It is mismanagement of hospitals in North America.
    I ask you please be careful and use common sense. Peace and unity love to all.

    • Mohsen,

      “Weird people shop there…”

      Hahaha, lockdowns killed off small businesses, so redchinesey walfart could prosper.

      When you live far away, walfart is the main meglomart we have to use. Not much choice.
      However, we have a local butcher, so our meat is the best.
      We use walfart for the blankets, socks, t-shirts, slippers and throwaways. Not even worth washing. Wear till dirty, and chuck it in the wood burning stove.
      Put the kindling wood inside the old throwaways, and start the fire up.

  4. Another article I read was saying four times as many people have died in SF from drug overdose/suicide than kung-flu baloney.

    What surprised me is that they didn’t count the drug overdose and suicides as kung-flu deaths!

  5. I avoid all pills.

    When I had an emergency, Last time I had dental pain, the doc prescribed about 11 pills. I told him just 3 would be enough. I still have one left over.

    I don’t like opiates. They are addictive. Had a good friend die from an accidental opiate overdose. Another co-worker from decades ago, also died from sustained intake of opiates, which led to organ failure.

    Too much risk.
