Dammit, you’re gonna make me defend him?

$1,000 (a minuscule value with campaigns) from a PAC… It’s very easy to see how someone on his staff could have made a mistake and told him what he stated.

Should they have known? Sure. But this isn’t in and of itself some huge gotcha.

And all of these scripts are recorded and available to state governments. I don't want manufacturers overriding medical doctors, that's insane. If the doctors are abusing their credentials, then let state medical boards address it.

The manufacturer has a MEDICAL DOCTOR prescribing the drugs. Why would you want engineers and distribution / transportation professionals making medical decisions??

Isn't it medical regulators who determine who a pill mill is (or isn't)? It's not for a distributor to question a doctor on their diagnosis of patients.

I'm all for going after people who deserve it, but that doesn't mean everyone involved in the creation of opioids did something wrong.

I’m curious and no judgement at all: Is it you prefer less-crowded places, or are not someone that likes being around sports fans / crowds cheering (loud noise) / etc?

I have zero interest in baseball, but I love the energy and general euphoria in the playoffs (and I’m an active participant with football)
