    There is your manager of operations folks. Your day ticket money now goes to the maker of his drugs and his drug habit. Congrats!

    This topic sets me off, I have a family member who was just weaned off of opioids. She was lucky.
    And on a very personal note I was not lucky enough to have my nephew at Easter this year or for the last 5 years because he chose to shoot heroin and died in 2014, so this shit is as personal as I comes. He wasn't prescribed oxy or ever had an reason other than he was soft minded and listened to his "friends" who said how amazing it felt to get high. Start to finish - dead in one year. And to hit a beeshive that many here hold dear to their hearts, he started with MJ and just liked getting high.

    You really have no idea what you're talking about and sound dumb on this issue.

    Like ThinkSnow & cdskier, I too have worked in biotech and pharma most of my career. You've watched one too many dramatic documentaries and have blindly listened to too many politicians trying to (apparently successfully) inflame you.

    FWIW, (not that I think you'll even care to learn), few pharma companies as a percent of the whole even sell these drugs, and those that do dont generally focus on orphan drug treatments.

    THIS.

    Here is another myth regarding this issue. That most people get hooked because they had a backache & a doc prescribed them a drug.

    Does this happen? Absolutely it does. But there is this myth out there that is the 2nd-rung of the naive "evil Big pharma" argument, that that's how most people get hooked, and as you correctly note, this could not be further from the truth.

    I was under the impression that the guy was vp at peaks at the time that he was busted setting up the oxy distribution ring. The local police traced the packages that were being sent to him under his dog's name. Caught him with something like 500 pills. Could be rumor.

    I really don't get why anyone would want to hurt likely hundreds of thousands of people by trying to shutter their employer. It's not their fault they are owned by shitheads

    Sorry for your loss, but MJ had zero to do with it. Blaming MJ is truly a problem in this country because it is an excuse that is too easy to use.

    This is true. It was Jesse Boyd. Hes the son of the #1 at Peak. He was like overseeing all Jack Frost and big boulder at the time of this bust. Now I think hes in charge of all mountain operations for peak. So yeah...good company.
