One thing that you will start watching around at your place or wherever minding your own business, and then by the end realize that you are now actually a communist and would like any company that has profited from pushing prescription is the Matthew Broderick’s performance as Richard Sackler in Netflix’s new drama, Painkiller. Reportedly, those tacklers are the owners of the company which is formerly known as Purdue Pharma which has developed the pain drug OxyContin. However, it is a performance of sublime malice but the real Richard Sackler is an actual human being who still moves among us. As we talk about Richard Sackler’s current place, and where he is at, then Sackler turned 78 in March this year. Though, you could assume the celebrations will be relatively muted as compared to the days before he and his family were wronged by the courts.

At the moment Sacklers have been compelled by a three-judge panel to give up to protect themselves against future civil lawsuits related to the sale of Oxycontin, $3 billion of which comes from the family’s own fortune. It was reported that at least $750 million will go to victims of the opioid crisis and their families. However, Purdue Pharma the company that produced and sold OxyContin, will be dissolved and the UK arm, Mundipharma was being sold off with the proceeds added to the fund. Furthermore, Purdue pleaded guilty to charges about its marketing of the opioid and it is the company that is being pursued for wrongdoing instead the family. As mentioned earlier, Richard Sackler was the co-president of Purdue Pharma from 1999 to 2003 having joined the company in 1971. The late 2010s saw Sackler being drawn into many courtroom battles over who was responsible for the crisis.

Since the events in regard to Painkiller, there are many of the art institutions which carried the Sackler name have included UK institutions including the Gallery and the VA museum, which have got it from galleries that the family had sponsored. Reportedly, no member of the Sackler family has ever been legally charged in connection.
