An Opioid That Is 25 To 50 Times More Powerful Than Heroin

Former CEO of Insys Therapeutics, Michael Babich, has set to plead guilty in a major opiate drug case.  Babich said he will plead guilty when he takes on trial in January. He will plead guilty to conspiracy and mail & wire fraud and forfeit $3.5m.

He has been charged in a national scheme of bribing doctors in return for prescribing patients Subsys, which is a fentanyl based painkiller and is found to be an highly addictive drug.

A man reported that he had been receiving fentanyl via mail for approximately two years, not knowing it was illegal.
