From the Week of May 17 –, Senate Investigation and Silence  remains an amazing site    It has reached over 13,200 signatures and comments.  Almost 500 people have ordered the BanOxycontin bracelets.  This has been accomplished by friends sharing with friends.

Please ask why our government leaders, media, public officials, treatment facilities, medical groups and “anti-drug” organizations continue to ignore the petition site.

Please spend a minute reviewing the comments on the BanOxycontin site and reflect on why the most visible groups who profess to be concerned about drug misuse and addiction continue to ignore the website.

If you are in contact with a group who encourages you to bring a picture of your loved one to a gathering or looks for support in sharing awareness on addiction please ask why the leaders continue to ignore the site.  The banoxycontin bracelet has not been part of any gathering by those who ask you for money or presence to support their mission.  The bracelet has not been a part of any recent demonstration that asks our government leaders to bring more funding to addiction services.

Why do “anti-drug” leaders want your support and continue to ignore the petition?

The petition is not a radical or dangerous petition.  The petition highlights the product that started the current prescription drug epidemic.  OxyContin is a marketing phenomenon and not a miracle product that cannot be replaced by other opioids on the market.  Purdue Pharma, the makers of OxyContin, have been fined and convicted of misleading the public on OxyContin.

Frankly, I am tired of the insincerity of group leaders asking for your support without supporting the largest petition on the internet that is capable of garnering attention and discussion as our loved ones die and the stories increase on a growing heroin epidemic which OxyContin has been instrumental in helping create.

Ask why speeches are given in our schools and no disparaging words for OxyContin?  We have funding for drug education and no outcry against the marketing symbol that started the epidemic?

On May 8, 2012 Senators Charles Grassley and Max Baucas requested a full scale investigation that included Purdue Pharma’s marketing activities concerning OxyContin.  After almost two years the investigation has apparently stalled.

Please forward this letter to members who are affiliated with “anti-drug and education” groups and begin asking what the true agenda of their endeavors are.  Whatever it is, your money and support are not reaching our public leaders.  Why the silence on the Purdue Pharma Senate investigation?

With a start of over 13,200 signatures, the petition has a chance of gaining media attention.  Please forward the petition   The silence on the truth cannot continue forever.

    I don’t understand people do need the drug so why ban it

    • Larry says:

      With respect: Where do you get the idea that people “need” OxyContin? People NEVER get better while on the drug and OxyContin along with a “cocktail” of additional drugs brings the person greater disability and lesser mental functioning. Please read the thousands of comments concerning OxyContin on BanOxyContin. For pain relief, OxyContin is a marketing invention and other narcotic pain relievers are available that have the same therapeutic qualities of OxyContin. OxyContin is the symbol for the prescription drug epidemic and we can’t make progress on the death and destruction from the legal narcotics unless OxyContin is fully revealed. It is not the miracle drug you have been led to believe.
