Sackler scion once said 59 Oxycontin deaths in one state was 'not bad' then urged staff to increase opioid doses in patients, emails show, while records reveal his pharmaceutical company has now patented a drug to treat addiction

The heir to the Sackler billions worked to protect the company while profiting every step of the way according to a lawsuit that was unsealed just last week in the state of Massachusetts.

A complaint filed by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts accused the Sackler family of not only knowing about the growing opioid epidemic that was being fueled by the painkiller Oxycontin, but pushing their sales force at Purdue Pharma to get more doctors prescribing the drug.

Once a patient had been prescribed the painkiller, executives urged staff to get those individuals on a higher dosage, thus generating more profit.
