NM Sues Big Drug Company

THE STATE OF NEW MEXICO IS NOW SUING THE FAMILY BEHIND THE PURDUE PHARMA COMPANY. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS REPORTS THE SACKLER FAMILY IS BEING SUED BY STATE ATTORNEY GENERAL HECTOR BALDERAS FOR DECEPTIVE PRACTICES RESULTING IN OPIOID DRUGS FLOODING THE NEW MEXICO MARKET AND MANY RESIDENTS BECOMING ADDICTS.

IT’S NOT THE ONLY DRUG COMPANY NAMED IN THE STATE’S OTHER LAWSUITS OR THOSE FILED BY OTHER STATES AND COMPANIES. NEW MEXICO’S FIRST LAWSUIT AGAINST PURDUE AND OTHER DRUG COMPANIES WAS FILED IN 2017. THE SACKLERS COULD BE HIT WITH MORE LAWSUITS, EVEN IF THEY FILE FOR BANKRUPTCY PROTECTION.
