If you don’t understand the connection to an American pharmaceutical company, it is briefly like so:
– OxyContin is a narcotic painkiller that is incredibly addictive
– Street value of an OxyContin pill is over $50
– Users of OxyContin (or other opioids) who become addicted experience incredibly painful emotional and physical withdrawals without the drug
– Street value of a hit of heroin is $5-$10 and produces the same effect as OxyContin
I am sure you can piece together the rest of the puzzle as to why Purdue Pharmas billion dollar drug that is basically “legal heroin” has fueled a global trade that also funds Al Qaeda and other terrorist organizations.
