The newest get rich quick scam for the pharmaceutical companies and interests.Filing medical malpractice lawsuits against doctors or medical professionals who don't prescribe pharmaceutical nicotine products is the latest tactic by tobacco control groups. And since most tobacco control groups are funded directly by pharmaceutical nicotine interests like the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF), (the private foundation of the Johnson & Johnson Company) their interests are purely profit motivated.
Dr. Siegel discusses this latest tactic of forcible coercion in his article Tobacco Control Research and Education Center Suggests Malpractice Lawsuits as a Way to Get Physicians to Prescribe Pharmaceuticals to Smokers.
It's very interesting to me how the tobacco control and pro-smoking ban groups are openly exposing their for profit agenda, yet the media and lawmakers refuse to call them on this blatantly selfish, ethically challenged, and potentially illegal activity.
Thankfully the internet is providing the counterbalance to the lies and deceipt.
