(MYRTLE BEACH, SC) - J. David Haddox, MD J. David Haddox, MD, DDS is the "gate keeper" at Purdue Pharma and successfully downplayed the dangers of OxyContin in the late 1990's.

US Senator Orrin Hatch of Utah and Congressman Tom Marino Exposed

Hatch has sealed the report and it has never been made public.

(MYRTLE BEACH, SC) - Orrin Hatch This is the email I sent to every Attorney General today and people in high places:

Caught you US Senator Orrin Hatch! Now Release the Opioid Report!

Join the rally cry for release of the US Senate Finance Committee report.

(MYRTLE BEACH, SC) - Orrin Hat In the 15 years I have been reporting on the prescription opioid epidemic, it has in some ways been frustrating to be a forerunner in exposing the criminal activity of pharma, the FDA, politicians, physicians, pain foundations and organizations profiting from the surging death and addiction rates -- while US Senator Orrin Hatch is allowed to obstruct justice.

In 2012, the US Senate Finance Committee began an investigation into the prescription opioid epidemic. When the report was finished, Orrin Hatch simply had the contents sealed closed.

Purdue Pharma`s Killer Surprise for American Children

Addicting 7 to 16 year olds to hard drugs is not a happy surprise.

(MYRTLE BEACH, SC) - pharma kid On September 14, the FDA Advisory Committee will be holding a hearing on Purdue Pharma's new "blockbuster" opioid called Butrans. It is targeted for severe pain in children ages 7 to 16 years old.

There is not a doubt in my mind that once the FDA approves this latest killer opioid presented by Purdue Pharma, it will be off-labeled marketed as OxyContin was for all pain levels.

Opioid Epidemic Continues to Soar Despite All Reason

Who wears "white hats" and who wears "black hats" as the prescription opioid epidemic soars in addictions and deaths?

(MYRTLE BEACH, SC) - Lynn Webster MD For those wondering why the prescription opioid/heroin destruction of human life surges out of control every day, you may want to consider this information published in the news relating to the wearers of "white hats" or "black hats". Feel free to draw your own conclusions.

Several years ago a pain clinic in Salt Lake City, Utah run by Lynn R. Webster was raided by the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) when people began turning up dead after treatment.

Politicians and FDA are Profiteers in the Prescription Opioid Epidemic. Wake up America!

The US Senate called for an investigation into the prescription opioid epidemic in 2012. It is now 2017 and that report has been sealed.

(MYRTLE BEACH, SC) - addiction Almost 10 years ago, I testified in front of the US Senate Committee on the Judiciary and asked for an investigation into Purdue Pharma, maker of OxyContin's criminal marketing of their opioid.

I had also testified for the US Attorney in Virginia when Purdue Pharma pleaded guilty to charges of misleading physicians and patients about the dangers of OxyContin -- also in 2007.

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.
