Unit 3 Micro: Glaxo SmithKline fined $3 billion for off-label marketing

The scale of the fine is staggering, Glaxo SmithKline has been found guilty of off-label marketing - an illegal strategy - GSK targeted the antidepressant Paxil at patients under age 18 when it was approved only for adults, and promoted the drug Wellbutrin for uses it was not approved for, including weight loss and treatment of sexual dysfunction

This is corporate irresponsibility on a grand scale as this new report makes clear.
