    I can’t even find that thread without the link. That twat waffle of a dude who runs the site I think blocked me from seeing it or some shit. Probably was worried I’d expand everyone’s knowledge of real facts.

    I was going to say that this flew under the radar. I for one would be concerned about the stability of their ownership. They currently are in the crosshairs of multiple upon multiple lawsuits for alleged egregious behavior. That doesn’t sound like the definition of financial stability to me.

    You have no idea of how many things you buy / use that are not socially aligned with your own convictions. For example they have owned shares as far back as 2015 but now it is not acceptable. That is because you know. It is easier when you do not know.

    What about ski areas that claim that they are envirinmentally sustainable but require fossil fuels to people there.

    Just sayin!

    They owned 40% previously. Not exactly what I consider a "small" share. It may not have been a majority controlling share, but it was still substantial.

    I will still continue to hit up Snow and buy lunch somewhere and buy beer to take home from somewhere. Better to keep the local economy flowing. Peak is going to probably crash and burn at some point in the next five years anyway.

    This exactly.

    Inflicting death for profit does not sell well.

    I wonder at what point PEOPLE will start taking responsibility for their own actions instead of blaming others for their downfalls. Back in the late 70s early 80s there was a big push in medicine for pain control, after many years criticism from the public that their pain was poorly controlled after surgeries. To the point that there was a push to include pain in all vital sign rounds, "pain is the fifth vital" was the mantra in nursing and medical schools.

    The big bad rich people created a medicine that is effective in treating pain. Pain which most should never have complained about in the first place but as a society we are soft, so the Sackler's seized the opportunity.

    Was the drug abused, yes. Was it misrepresented, probably. Is it their fault people started taking their pills three-four times more frequently and double and triple the prescribed doses, absolutely not. Nowhere on the drug information sheets does it say it is acceptable to chew them (because it gets you high instead of slow release as intended), nowhere does it say crush an snort as an acceptable route of administration (because it gets you high instead of treating pain as intended).

    We as a society need to stop passing the buck and take responsibility for our own actions. I couldn't care who owns what as long as they keep the lights on. I have way more important shit to worry about - mainly keeping my kids safe and healthy and teaching them to stay away from all the bad shit that goes on in this world.
