Drug Company Set to Pay $15 Million to DOJ Over Doctor Bribery Scandal

Two whistleblowers came forward in April to accuse Questcor of trying to boost profits for Acthar, a medication primarily for infants with seizures. Questcor raised the price of the medication by almost 100,000 percent (not a typo) from just $40 in 2000 to $38,892 today, despite the fact that Acthar has been on the market since 1952. Mallinckrodt currently rakes in about $1 billion per year from Acthar, according to CNN.

The movie, The Devil Wears Prada, made me actually consider that there might be something to the fashion industry. Gucci’s 2020 menswear collection has destroyed that notion. This is one of the 4 or 5 most-influential fashion brands on the planet. You can’t convince me that this picture isn’t the result of being told, “You have 2 minutes to run through a Goodwill, and anything you can fit in this bag will be free,” and putting on a runway with the result.
