The Pala Band Is In A Legal Fight With Big Pharma Over Opioid Crisis

Thanks to Original Pechanga's Blog for bringing this to my attention.

So far it has been hard to find anything online.   Pala supposedly issued a press release but I have not been able to find it yet.

Law360 is listing the case:  Pala Band of Mission Indians v. Purdue Pharma L.P. et al

I did manage to find one news article:

abc10 News San Diego - Pala Band of Mission Indians files lawsuit against opioid manufacturers, distributors

You can read the full article at the link above.

Here is an excerpt:
In a press release, Pala Tribal Chairman Robert Smith said, “The opioid epidemic has had devastating impacts on our tribe. Big Pharma’s aggressive promotion of OxyContin and other prescription opiates have caused increasing incidences of addiction, disability and family dysfunction.”

Reality has completely gone Orwellian.
