Ah, great. A shitty rap video by a pharmaceutical company completely destroyed my city (I live in Vancouver).

His statement could've been worse, though. He could've said, "That's not too bad. It could've been far worse. As long as it was mostly jews."

That rap in the beginning...

Given that Eminem had an addiction to similar drugs before, got off them, and has been sober for over 10 years, using his song to sell those drugs is just insulting.

I applaud Michael Keaton for not smacking in some thoughtlessly abstruse or overly exaggerated manner while eating his sandwich on film. *snacking maka me wana snap!!!*

The point about Dennis, the janitor is actually an insanely considerate and accurate statement. Like the people responsible are actually going to sweep up anything (other than lawsuits under the proverbial rug). On the other hand, I'm sure he gets paid hourly and maybe he might have needed a little over time that week. *of course I'm sure they would commission extra help for the cleanup of such a thing, but it's still an adequate example of how short sighted and thoughtless a mob of protestors can be....

mr sackler will never have to spend 1 single in prison because he is a high ranking freemason. how do i know? because when democracy now did a piece on him they showed a picture of him wearing a button with there logo on it. why is that significant? two reasons. one because a basic tenet of there beliefs is that everything is a hierarchy so if u get rich crushing somebody its ok because thats just how nature works. secondly if your in that organization long enough, you earn diplomatic immunity. no joke and no conspiracy theory. wake up america!

Why dont you articles / videos about how 'Americans' in general do NOTHING hold people accountable for anything,... -Instead of having actors play people from Purdue, have actors play Americans saying 'Oh well, Im sorry that you feel that way", and "if someone wants to take Oxycontin, then THATS THEIR CHOICE" -like typical 'Americans', then show them obsessing on who around them is 'different', and how to be an 'entitled' alienating mean bigot... like good well bred 'Americans' in a fake country.

Well this idea didnt just start here. China was flooded with opium in old history. Thats why so many nations strictly forbid it. Punishment with death even in some countries

Oliver is a monster...a deeply ugly man making money and making light of a horrible crisis. Scum bag masquerading as a saint. Kill yourself Oliver.

"I'll substitute you like a Xylotol" Is a lamer rap line than that C.R.E.A.M. by Wu-Tang chorus parody? I would agree except,
"I can hold my own/knick-knack Shaq attack give a dog a bone" exists.

I would say that having Michael Keaton, Bryan Cranston, and Michael K Williams play me is worth owning the opioid crisis....

He needs to make an, "Opioids part III" episode about the Poppy fields in Afghanistan where the Pharmaceutical manufacturers get the bulk of the primary active ingredients for their Drugs.
(Oxyconton, Hydrocodone, Oxycodone, Morphine, etc.)
The problem is so systemic, the US Military is actually actively protecting the Opium Poppy Industries run by Tribal communities, most of which used to be maintained, regulated, and controlled by the Taliban and other comparable local organizations and government agencies.
Although they're mostly all still owned and operated by the same Afghan Tribal communities, and there have been efforts to transition them to growing and cultivating altogether different cash crops, like corn, etc., the region is particularly suited to the healthy and profitable growth and cultivation of the Poppy plants in a far more significant rate per acre of land.
It's the primary global, "supply," end of the worldwide Opiate crisis, accounting for about 80+% of the industry's supply.
And, just as the Drug manufacturers are protected by American Lawmakers here, the Opium Poppy farms are protected by the United States Military in Afghanistan.
So, it's clearly just as complex a problem as the manufacturing and distributing end, and ultimately the drug users and abusers themselves.
Making the entire industry from Poppy to pill a worldwide systemic issue needing a solution.

Why does the legal supplier have the responsibility ... they respond to demand? If X pharmacy has a billion script count, someone has to supply. Maybe they should flag the pharmacy and report to a third party?

I live in WV and the medical examiner, foster care, and first responder systems are completely overrun. There are so many kids in care and kids as young as 6th grade overdosing. I wish I could melt all of those responsible in a vat of acid.

The most fucked up part thing about this is that it’s an Eminem song and Eminem almost died from addiction to opioids

7500 doses per person in Kermit is 675 a month the hell?! (It has to be other areas around it)

Wtf man. I went to jail for a gram of weed.
But opioids are contributing to literal mass addiction and death.

I guess it's just too difficult for people who've lived their whole lives looking down their nose, to see the world from any other perspective.

the phrase "it could have been worse" can only not be applied to two things: Richard Sackler's statement regarding those 59 deaths and the way ICE is handling their detainment of migrants.

Because other people's taxes will pay for your unfortunate accidents, unplanned medical conditions and assorted mishaps. The same goes for medical insurance, BTW.

Opioids for minor issues like Back- and Knee Pain? I don´t know how it is in the States, but for minor issues like this works Paracetamol or Ibuprofen very well and they don´t make you addicted.

I so love Bryan Cranston. He is such a great actor. I loved him on "Malcolm in the Middle". He fucking cracks me up. I am so happy he's had so much success. He deserves it. Congratulations, Bryan.

47,000 isn't a large number, at all, especially when you stop to think that cops have shot or killed triple that number of citizens...we might want to get *that* "epidemic" taken care of first.

When people finally realize that a million is only one-tenth of one percent of a billion, how we hold giant corporations and the people who run them accountable will change dramatically.
