Pharmaceutical Insiders with Proof of Company’s Improper Relationships: Federal Law Offers Whistleblowers Opportunity for Sizable Financial Compensation, Parker Waichman LLP Says

The Post article further noted that the FDA has been disparaged for failing to put in place stricter precautions that might have helped the U.S. to avoid the, “epidemic of addiction to prescription drugs,” such as Oxycontin and other opioids.
