In 2007 Purdue Pharmaceuticals pled guilty and paid a $600 million fine for falsely minimizing the drug’s addiction risks. More recently a suit has been filed by the city of Everett Washington alleging that the company “negligently disregarded and failed to act on data they had that large quantities of the drug were being bought (and diverted) by pharmacies suspected with colluding with dealers and addicts.”). What role/responsibility does the maker of this drug have here?
