Orphan Medical

Pharmaceutical company Orphan Medical has been fined $20,000,000- by Brooklyn Federal Court for peddling a drug called Xyrem or GHB.

The drug is so powerful it is classified as a ‘date-rape’ drug. Orphan Medical paid a lap-dog psychiatrist thousands (cannot find the name yet) to tour the country making speeches promoting the drug as safe for children and for the elderly.

Orphan made the claim that the drug could be safely used to treat obesity, fatigue, pain, depression, insomnia and other ailments.

The psych backed up these claims and we must hope that he/she will also be hauled in front of the court before too long.
