After two years, the country’s three largest drug distributors and pharmaceutical giant Johnson & Johnson have reached a $26 billion settlement that would release the companies from all legal liability in the opioid epidemic, with majority of the funds going toward paying for addiction and prevention services. What do you think?

“Wow, it could take them weeks to pay that off.”

Jake Leezy, Folklorist
