Pharmaceutical Giants Caught Supplying Cartels With Tons of Bulk Ingredients to Produce Meth
Executives of a Belgian Big Pharma in Belgium will be charged with intentionally supplying large quantities of prescription drugs to create methamphetamine!
The Mexican drug lord, Ezio Figueroa Vazquez, was supplied with specific drugs from reputable drug companies says a report. The company provided Ephedrine, which is the main ingredient to make the highly addictive and destructive drug, methamphetamine.
The identities of the executives were not revealed to protect them and their families. But reports show that two of the two principal companies involved are Andacon and Sterop.
The executives from these companies tried to claim that they had no idea about the identities of their clients. They maintain that they were not aware the buyers were, in fact, drug dealers. But prosecutors have asserted that both corporations knew precisely who was buying the drugs and for what reason.
An Andacon representative said:
“The company made two shipments of two million pills containing pseudoephedrine in 2006. These medicines were freely available then. My clients delivered to a reliable commercial partner and had no idea of the inappropriate use of the drugs.”
Big Pharma favorite Adderall is fundamentally the same as crystal meth, and the recent opioid mess surrounding the drug Oxytocin is another drug that was heavily marketed and pushed to the public.
People that think the Big Pharma has decent morals is not paying enough attention. They control the majority of the world’s medicine, yet their loyalties lie in profits and not healthcare.
At the beginning of this year, Big Pharma CEO, John Kapoor, was arrested and charged with pushing extremely addictive drugs onto doctors. He wanted the doctors to prescribe the drugs to as many oblivious patients as possible. Kapoor apparently did not care about the health of the patients. He only cared about the profits he was going to get from the scheme.
Unfortunately, Meth is one of the most common street drugs, and the people who manufacture them need to get their supply from somewhere. Sadly, many people in the pharmaceutical industry want to help supply drug lords, regardless of the negative impact that it creates in the community.
