1…………..> “Soft Drug Dealers”: Shut Down
The Drug Enforcement Administration today announced the issuance of an Immediate Suspension Order served on Morris & Dickson Company, a wholesale pharmaceutical distributor, located in Shreveport, Louisiana, after an investigation alleged that this distribution center failed to properly identify large suspicious orders for controlled substances sold to independent pharmacies with a questionable need for the drugs, primarily on purchases of Oxycodone and Hydrocodone.
A further review revealed that in some cases, pharmacies were allowed to purchase as much as six times the quantity of narcotics the pharmacy would normally order. In spite of regulations which require distributors to identify such orders, DEA alleges that Morris & Dickson Company failed to identify these large suspicious orders resulting in millions of dosage units of Oxycodone and Hydrocodone being distributed in violation of the law.
“Opioid distributors have a legal obligation not to facilitate the illicit diversion of drugs,” said Attorney General Jeff Sessions. “That obligation has never been more important than it is right now as we face the deadliest drug crisis in American history. According to the allegations, many large suspicious orders for opioids were made, filled, and unreported by Morris and Dickson. We can only imagine how many pills were diverted, abused, and how many addictions began as a result. Today’s suspension will help us achieve the President’s goals of reducing opioid prescriptions in the United States and stopping the spread of addiction. I want to thank the DEA for their vigilance, for all of their hard work. The Justice Department will continue to use suspensions, deregistrations, and every other tool we have to stop the drug epidemic.”
2…………> Watch Out, Assad: Israel Warning
In the boiling war of words and deeds against Syria, Israel’s Energy Minister Yuval Steinitz warned that Mr. Assad may find himself in Israel’s sights.
“If Assad allows Iran to turn Syria into a military vanguard against us, to attack us from Syrian territory, he should know that would be the end of him, the end of his regime,” Mr. Steinitz told the Ynet news site.
Asked if that meant Israel might assassinate Mr. Assad, Mr. Steinitz said: “His blood would be forfeit.”
Israel could respond to any Iranian attack on it from Syria by toppling Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s government, a hint that Mr. Assad himself may be targeted for assassination.
