For years the OxyContin prescriptions have been flowing from doctors' and dentists' offices, even though the risks of this drug are quite clear. Now the Sackler family of Purdue Pharma, which apparently actively promoted this drug while being completely aware of its dangers, are being sued. From NBC News (January 16)--also cited in NEJM Journal Watch (January 17, 2019):
