Arkansas has just announced that it is planning a lawsuit against Eli Lilly, Janssen Pharmaceuticals and Astra Zeneca for “improper and unlawful marketing” of anti-psychotic drugs.
In suing Lilly Arkansas joins Alaska, Louisiana, Mississippi, Montana, New Mexico, Pennsylvania, Utah and West Virginia to make nine states in total.
In suing Janssen Arkansas joins Louisiana, Texas and Pennsylvania to make four states in total.
In suing Astra Zeneca Arkansas joins Pennsylvania.
There are fifty states in the Union. With a total of 10 states already involved in litigation against Big Pharma that leaves 80% of States for Big Pharma still to worry about.
Big Pharma’s influence over the White House and Congress whilst admittedly huge, will count for nothing when the chips are down. When the SHTF Big Pharma will be tossed to the lions no matter how vast their ‘donations’ have been in the past.
Whilst I will enjoy that day immensely, my satisfaction will not be as great as all the people still suffering from Big Pharma’s profit before health philosophy, nor the families of the million plus who have paid the ultimate price for their immoral greed.
And then the trail will move on those willing accomplices of Big Pharma, the psychiatrists who infest all aspects of our society. Yes I shall have a wait a while longer, but the day of reckoning draws ever closer.
