Defendants also developed new deceptive marketing practices in response to increasing awareness of the problems with opioids.Rather than admit responsibility, Defendants simply blamed abuse and addiction on people snorting or injecting opioids. In 2010, Purdue obtained approval for an “abuse-deterrent” formulation (“ADF”) of Oxy Contin but deceptively marketed it to doctors and consumers, claiming:a.Purdue’s ADF opioids could not be crushed or snorted, which is false.b.Purdue’s ADF opioids reduced opioid abuse and diversion, which is false.(collectively “Janssen”), Endo Health Solutions Inc., and Endo Pharmaceuticals Inc. They are derived from and possess properties similar to opium and heroin, and they are regulated as controlled substances.(collectively “Endo”) manufacture, market, and sell prescription opioid pain medications, including the brand-name drugs Oxy Contin, Butrans, Hysingla ER, Actiq, Fentora, Opana/Opana ER, Percodan, Percocet, Zydone and Duragesic. While opioids can dampen the perception of pain, they also can create an addictive, euphoric high.In 2007, Purdue and three of its executives pled guilty to federal criminal charges for deceptively marketing opioids and reached civil settlements with 26 States (not including New Jersey) and the District of Columbia.However, rather than reforming its opioid marketing to comply with the law, Purdue continued to mislead and obfuscate, as did the other Defendants. To this day, Defendants have failed to correct their earlier misrepresentations, and, in many respects, persist in the same types of misconduct. Defendants spent hundreds of millions of dollars on promotional activities and materials that continued to falsely deny or trivialize the risk of addiction and overstated the benefits of opioids.
