Wisconsin Joins Lawsuit Against Creators Of Oxycontin

MADISON, WI (Ben Caxton) — Wisconsin is joining several other states in a lawsuit against the company that created OxyContin. Here’s Raymond Neupert with the details. `The state of Wisconsin is joining several other states in a lawsuit against Perdue Pharma, the creator of OxyContin. Attorney general Josh Kaul says the company and its leader Richard Sackler conspired to deceive the public about the drug to push sales. “Benefits of opioids were overstated in an effort to change the culture regarding the prescription of opioids, to reduce the reluctance that the public had in taking opioids and the reluctance that prescribers had in prescribing opioids,” Kaul says the push for profits started the opioid drug crisis in America. Iowa, Kansas, Maryland and West Virginia are all joining in the lawsuit. `
