    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.




    Uuuuuuuh... Yeah, not to interject on your guys' circle jerk, but how tf else do you think tens of millions of pills get into circulation without bad docs writing bad scripts???

    You can't get Oxy into the hands of people without a doctor. Own that simple fact please and thank you.

    If there's ever a time when people stop talking about how messed up what Purdue/The Sacklers did here, we are in a lot of trouble.

    Are Oxys like Fentanyl where Chinese manufacturers are shipping them in illegally? Otherwise I would think the vast majority of the pills on the black market are coming via crooked doctors and pharmacists. That's all Do Work is saying. I suppose some might be from robberies of Drug stores, but a very small percentage.

    Not just crooked Drs and Pharmacists, but the wholesalers Miami-Luken and H.D. Smith that delivered 20.8 million pills into a West Virginia town of 2900 over a 10 year period. Despite all the rules for tracking these opioids, I guess nobody noticed this crazy usage.

    "If you want to know how the opioid epidemic got so out of control, it’s hard to do better than this statistic: Between 2006 and 2016, out-of-state drug companies shipped nearly 21 million opioid painkillers to two pharmacies in Williamson, West Virginia, population 2,900."

    Wow it really goes to show how what amounts to a few bad apples really do spoil it for everyone.

    As usual the truly bad actors are few. Sackler behavior is utterly heinous; it would be a shame if skiing was affected as a result.

    Well, I am glad I only have 3 years left at Hunter. Gore will be my new home base then.

    Not a good look for peaks. This is not surprising as their Exec team has been indifferent with how poorly there operations have been run/funded (outside of Mt Snow). Just look at Attitash as an example.
    Peaks clearly have had their hands full with Cash flow problems, mounting debt and funding challenges....so they turn to a Seedy covert source as just disclosed.

    Something always smelled fishy with that dude Boyd After the Grand Summit debacle last year. Owners took back control of the GS hotel and resort as Peaks had run it into the ground.

    Look, somewhere along the line those pills passed through a legal scrip. There is no dostribution direct to the black market from Purdue
