NBC reports a rising number of children getting sick and dying from opiod abuse.




The leading manufacturer of opioids (OxyContin) is Purdue Pharmaceuticals, based in Connecticut.


Oxycontin has made the Sackler family of Connecticut very rich. Forbes says they have a net worth of $15 billion. A fortune built on death and ruined lives. Pharmacists have been murdered by opiod addicts in search of the pills.


Jonathan Sackler is a major donor to the charter movement. He launched ConnCAN and 50CAN to sell privatization. Killing public schools too.
