FBI Says Drug Trafficking at Boeing is No Big Deal

FBI Says Drug Trafficking at Boeing is No Big Deal


Private and public government-linked corporations have realized that the profits to be made in Big Pharma expand beyond lobbying, campaign contributions, and the revolving door. Following the recent prescription pill trafficking arrest of several TSA officers and New York policemen, the FBI arrested on Thursday more than three dozen employees at Boeing, a huge military air craft plant, for prescription pill trafficking. And now, to assure the public does not worry about the large bust, spokesmen are calling the problem typical.
According to Reuters:
More than three dozen people, all but one of them current or former Boeing employees, were charged with illegally dealing in prescription painkillers and anti-anxiety drugs after the arrests on Thursday at the factory in Ridley Park, Pennsylvania.
And:
Federal authorities said the area was not unusually prone to the illegal trade of prescription drugs.
"It's a problem that is everywhere," said Rusty Payne, spokesman for the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency in Washington.
"This is something that touches every demographic and geographic area of the country," he said. He noted that Florida, in particular, is a hot spot of such illegal drug activity.
Federal authorities and Boeing emphasized on Thursday that there was no evidence that the integrity of work on any aircraft had been compromised.
Boeing, which cooperated with the investigation, said none of the employees under suspicion during the four-year probe were allowed in any position to compromise the safety or quality of the aircraft.
It is true that prescription drug use and abuse is widespread. In fact, widespread pill use has assisted overdose in becoming the number one cause of accidental death in America. The problem is grave, but what makes it even more serious is the government's reluctance to acknowledge the issue. While we fight a drug war that allows for the arrest of peaceful medical marijuana users, as well as extreme violence in Mexico, Big Pharma gets away with manufacturing and pushing highly addicting, deadly drugs on Americans, many of whom are not patients, but addicts in need of treatment the government is reluctant to offer. It is no secret, however, that Big Pharma and government have long been bed fellows.
