Without prevention, outrage and leadership, the fatal scourge will progress.

(MYRTLE BEACH, S.C.) - greedy money man I recently wrote an article that generated quite a flurry of concern and discussion -- the evil reach of George Soros in his attempts to legalize drugs in the U.S. and also Partnership for Drug Free Kids funded by the FDA and Purdue Pharma, maker of OxyContin. Links to these articles are shown below.

Since Partnership is heavily financed by the FDA and Purdue Pharma that may be the reason they did not attend FDA meetings approving OxyContin for children...

Douglas Throckmorton, MD, Deputy Director of FDA - I expect an apology!

I participated in a "stakeholders" teleconference with Dr. Throckmorton to discuss the "FDA's strongest box warning on opioids". Or, did I?

(MYRTLE BEACH, S.C.) - Douglas Throckmorton I questioned if the FDA worked for pharma or was protecting the American people. Then I said -- "So far this year you have approved 7 or 8 extended release opioids -- when is enough enough? You have sat back while 26,000 people died this year alone."

My response to challenging Dr. Throckmorton was a voice saying the teleconference was over and I was disconnected.

FDA Advisory Committee:
Did you think your criminal incompetence would not be revealed?

The Advisory Committee's function should be to preserve lives -- not put them at risk.

(MYRTLE BEACH, S.C.) - Arymo ER (a morphine sulfate abuse deterrent tablet) Recently I attended an FDA Advisory Committee meeting where a new killer opioid called Arymo ER was under consideration to be unleashed in the U.S.

Lynn R. Webster, MD gave testimony and answered questions regarding the controversial extended release morphine tablet...when he had an expired license. The Advisory Committee may want to reconsider their recommendation of Arymo ER because they appear to have been misled (whether deliberately or not) and this could fall under the category of "unethical" or "criminal".

FDA -- Don`t Insult Me!!!

Is the death toll from these dangerous opioids just not high enough yet?

(MYRTLE BEACH, S.C.) - oh no you didnt Last month I wrote an article about the FDA's approval of yet another dangerous extended release opioid to be unleashed on the public as we are fighting addictions and deaths in the tens of thousands.

Marianne Skolek - USA / Canada

Salem-News.com Investigative Reporter

Email: Marianneskolek@aol.com

Marianne Skolek is an Investigative Reporter focusing on the Prescription Opioid/Heroin Epidemic in the U.S. and Canada. In particular, Marianne has covered the criminal marketing of OxyContin going back to 1999 and continuing to the present.

In 2002, Marianne lost her daughter, Jill to prescribed OxyContin which her physician referred to as "mobility in a bottle." It was, in fact, death in a bottle. After doing extensive research on the maker of OxyContin, Purdue Pharma, Marianne began working with the Department of Justice in Virginia in their criminal investigation into Purdue Pharma and in July 2007 was asked by the U.S. Attorney John Brownlee prosecuting the case to testify against the three CEO's of Purdue Pharma, Michael Friedman, Paul Goldenheim, MD and Howard Udell, Chief Counsel. The CEO's pleaded guilty to misleading the medical profession about the dangers of OxyContin. Marianne also testified against Purdue Pharma at a Judiciary Hearing of the U.S. Senate in July 2007.

In addition, a dangerous and highly addictive opioid named Zohydro has been approved by the FDA against their Advisory Committee's advice and Marianne continues to alert Attorneys General, Senators and Congressmen as to the FDA's irresponsibility in the out of control prescription opioid/heroin epidemic killing and addicting in the tens of thousands each year. Zohydro has been referred to as "heroin in a capsule" and its lowest dosage (10mg) contains twice as much hydrocodone as found in a Vicodin pill. The highest single dose of Zohydro contains as much hydrocodone as 5 to 10 tablets of Vicodin or Lortab. Zohydro mixed with alcohol can be fatal and has no abuse deterrent built in which will make it easy to crush and deliver a fatal dose of the opioid.

Currently Marianne has been instrumental in calling for the termination of Margaret Hamburg, MD, Commissioner of the FDA as well as Bob A. Rappaport, MD and Douglas Throckmorton, MD for their lack of commitment to safeguarding the American public against the prescription opioid/heroin epidemic. Marianne's research, writing and contact with government agencies and attorneys has also exposed the heavily funded pain foundations set up by the pharmaceutical industry and their paid physician spokespersons who convinced the medical boards in 50 states and Canada that dangerous opioids such as OxyContin were less likely to be addictive. These physicians -- in particular Scott Fishman, MD, J. David Haddox, DDS, MD, Perry Fine, MD, Lynn R. Webster, MD, Russell Portenoy, MD also downplayed the risks of addictive opioids in books as authors. These books are still available for sale and promoted to the medical profession.

Here are links to Marianne's involvement in exposing the national conspiracy of the prescription opioid/heroin epidemic, the FDA, the pharmaceutical industry, their pain foundations and paid physician spokespersons.
