Since Kendal Corporation consolidated their operations and moved out of Morgantown last year, a void has existed in that aspect of research. That is now being taken care of with a new and competing enterprise that has already employed more than 20 full time personnel, expects to have a $7 million impact on our local economy, and has the contract with Mylan Pharma to conduct drug trial research for that firm. Additional contracts are expected.

They have been doing pharmaceutical research in SWV for the last 16 years, tax free and without government regulation.

This is different though. This research is legal and for a worthwhile cause.

I understand that this is a funded research project, and it does provide funds to worthwhile causes. I'm just saying Big Pharmacuetical companies have put out products that were detrimental to the people without using research, nor when they did know what their products were doing to people they never attempted to remove or change their products until billions were made and thousands of lives were destroyed.

Ok, I will give you that SWV is the state leader in Meth production.

I was talking about useful research, the type that helps people.

Since you like to Uncle Tom for companies that do no wrong like Big Oil and Big Pharma, I just figured I would post the damage that Big Pharma got away with, since you are always concerned about the people and environment and all.

Ps. we've already determined that Deep SWV has a minuscule amount of Meth bust compared with the other parts of the State.

Go for it buddy. We already established the damage of strip mining. Good thing the industry is dying.

I for one would establish the damage caused by big Pharmaceutical companies. Billions upon billions have been paid in fines and class action lawsuits by Pharma for putting out faulty drugs that caused more harm than good. A industry that put out products like Vioxx, OxyContin, Phen-Phen, etc, knowing they had information these products may have adverse side effects, but yet still pushed profits first. Everyear Doctors receive kickbacks to write medicines people don't need, testing these products on poor, giving kids antidepressants and Ritalin, picking bums off the street to test medicines, all in the name of saving lives. Disposed medicines creep into our water and ground and pollute the land. Big Pharma has paid out more money, destroyed more lives, killed more people than strip mining.

Feel free not to take any medicine ever.

You are an interesting person Curse. You deny the ill effects of strip mining but hate pharmaceuticals which have saved tens of millions of lives in the past 100 years. Things like vaccines, anti-bacterial, cures for disease, treatment for AIDs, ways to fight cancer, etc. I could literally go on and on about how pharmaceuticals have improved so many things, but we all get the point. If every pharmaceutical company closed and all the pills disappeared things would be a lot worse. If all strip mining ended, things would be better. So for every bad thing you could say about pharm one could say 100 good things.

There is nothing wrong with painkillers. They help millions deal with severe pain and improve lives. People in SWV abusing them when they dont need them is not the industries fault.
