The video of the town that keeps being brought up is from 2008. People from anywhere could have been going there. Why is no one paying attention to the fact that the overdoses that started this crisis are heroin laced with fentanyl? Prescription medication addiction is not the same as physical dependency. The CDC admitted that they changed their method of recording deaths by including those that died from other causes if they had even trace amounts of opioids. This fake crisis will not stop illegal drug use and is destroying pain patients lives. The DEA, CDC and FDA have their own agenda which means keeping them funded. I can tell from the tone of this story that patients being forced off effective treatment, abandoned by doctors then having the government decide what medical treatment they are allowed or denied doesn't cause concerns in this country. I am tired of being in constant pain that will last the rest of my life. So every pain patient including myself will no longer have any respite from pain. I don't want to live everyday being eaten away by never ending torture. Bye John thanks for nothing.

Prescription pain medication comes labeled with warning stickers and a drug information sheet that tell you it can lead to addiction. The overdose deaths are from fentanyl, heroin, heroin laced with fentanyl. The CDC faked the opioid related deaths and admitted that they changed how they counted them to include deaths not due to overdoses but had traces of the drug. We have known for many years pain medication can lead to addiction but this crisis is targeting the wrong people and drug. I prefer death to a lifetime of constant pain personally John.

I'm frequently baffled at how efficiently you people use your money and influence to get the message through. I just watched the excerpts from Sacker's interview: awesome! Keep doing the excellent work.
I'm also happy that you guys inspired a show in my country - named Greg News, after its host Gregorio. We are in dire need of people to keep things real.

If you take prescriptions away from people they'll just move to the street and the deaths will sky rocket. Purdue is just a symptom of prohibition.

I like how the republicans obsess about the "war on drugs" as long as its about jailing immigrants and potheads, but as soon as multi billion pharmaceutical companies get involved (doing just as much harm, if not more) it's fine

John you probably will never read this comment but I will appeal to you once again. Please show what taking away chronic pain patients choice in their own medical treatment is allowing our government agencies and insurance companies to get away with. We have known pain medications abuse potential for years, opium abuse potential for centuries. Before OxyContin we had Percocet, Vicodin and others that were abused. This war on prescription medication for chronic pain patients is ruining lives. It is taking away patients ability to work, access to healthcare and in those with under or untreated pain causing deaths or driving them to suicide to stop the constant suffering. The real issues are power and money the only things our government cares about. Getting elected, keeping their funding and they all want a BIG piece of lawsuit pie but none of them care about the millions of patients who are suffering.

John Oliver is FOX news if FOX news had 100% more factual basis, 100% less cringe and 98.4% less bullshit!
When a corporation wants to hide something from you, its probably worse than anything you can imagine... because hiding shit is pretty bad, and it has to be worse than that.
PS: I am not looking up Sacklergallery... again. Last time my mom walked in, it was weird.

Clinton screwed up majorly by pushing the War on Drugs and stricter sentences on this. Fucking drugs are the enemy of the people, but we need to help, not imprison. Trump for all things wrong with him, is at least trying to change the narrative of bullshit prison sentences for drug crimes.

It seems that people who do or did drugs try and blame all their subsequent health issues on bad food or media lifestyles. Give me a break, idiots. Decriminalization happens because you tax the police. I just saw a book linking mental health issues with pot. This country is headed for disaster because of these potheads and other users.

#DontPunishPain Chronic intractable pain needs opioids. Opioids make their lives worth living. Cutting off chronic intractable pain patients from their medications causes them to die of suicide at an unprecedented rate. #DONTPUNISHPAIN!

I'm gonna be the one to say this, so here goes. Opioids work. They work so fucking well, that there's nothing quite like them.
The problem is that they make you feel so good that you never want to stop.. so people die.
But then the reaction to that is that no doctors want to prescribe them. Now you have people in crippling pain that can't get the only medicine that works because doctors are scared.
Now you have people committing suicide in tears because theyve been in pain for years and nobody will give them what helps
So what's the answer?
Do we give opioids to people and let people who become addicted die? Or do we withhold them and let people in pain suffer?
It's not as easy a question as everyone makes it out to be.

At the end of my abuse of prescription painkillers, I was taking 20-25 vicodin a day and mixing in oxycontin and percocets too. 20 seems like a lot, because it is, but hardcore addicts can go beyond that.

How is it legal to answer "I don't know" to a question you know the answer to, while under oath? How hard can it be to prove someone is lying when it's to the extent of claiming not to have known they were a director of a billion dollar company?

I love John Oliver’s pieces but I must say, as someone familiar with that industry, the part where Sakler is bragging about the time it took to pass FDA approval doesn’t show anything sinister. Pharma and med companies are always trying to speed up the approval process so they can go to market ASAP. That’s called being a publicly traded company. Not sure what the point of including that was. If it makes anyone look bad it’s the FDA

This is why I don't trust big companies. They will screw over anyone and everyone and do any obscene thing they can get away with no matter who gets hurt in order to make obscene amounts of money. Screw them.

Also I'm disappointed one of the actors you got to portray Richard Sackler wasn't Jack Nichelson.

Condemning all opioids will bring back the days of biting a wooden stick during surgery and then dying of shock. Right now patients are being given inadequate pain relief after surgery while in the hospital. People dying of cancer being denied adequate pain relief because they might get addicted. Our government agencies are lying every bit as much about opioids. They are also making health care decisions for millions of chronic pain patients and getting away with it. When do chronic pain patients and the few doctors left treating us get our side seen in the media? Everyone is an accident, illness, aging or surgery away from becoming a chronic pain sufferer. By then, the real culprit heroin will be all that is left.
