Inside the sales machine of the ‘kingpin’ of opioid makers
Johns Hopkins co-manages a vast digital archive of documents from lawsuits brought against opioid manufacturers, wholesalers, and pharmacies. The files—emails, sales reports, and other evidence—reveal how the opioid industry sought to increase sales of drugs they knew to be addictive and deadly.
The Opioid Industry Documents Archive is a digital repository of material generated by state and federal lawsuits against drug companies and managed by Johns Hopkins University and the University of California at San Francisco. The JHU side of the project is led by individuals from across the School of Medicine, School of Public Health, and the School of Nursing, including our very own Dr. Jeremy Greene.
