Pain Hustlers is an entertaining and frustrating look at the pharmaceutical world and all the ways that doctors were bribed to write higher prescriptions for a fentanyl based drug. Having seen the fallout of the opioid crisis, many would assume there would be far more regulations and oversight when it comes to doctors pushing new prescriptions. Somehow, companies still managed to incentivize doctors into breaking their codes of ethics to make more money for everyone involved, while leaving patients overly medicated and at risk of overdosing. With fentanyl tearing the country apart in present day, it’s no wonder that it’s such an epidemic because the people we trusted to care for us got greedy and valued money over human lives.
