Made millions from hiking prices from $13.50 to $750

Price gouging has happened on multiple life saving drugs?

Yes, this has happened all across the medical field. For Epi pens, BMS's cancer treatment, Questcor's pediatric epilepsy treatment, Valeant's heart medication...

Shkreli just became the poster boy for it because of this face. It is physically impossible to not hate that face, ask his mom.
