Here to comment that on this day, in the middle of the worst year of many of our lives, that Perdue just pleaded guilty to 3 criminal charges. Impeding the DEA's efforts to combat the opioid crisis. Purdue acknowledged that it had not maintained an effective program to prevent prescription drugs from being diverted to the black market, even though it had told the DEA it did have such a program, and that it provided misleading information to the agency as a way to boost company manufacturing quotas. It also admitted paying doctors through a speakers program to induce them to write more prescriptions for its painkillers.

What's great about him is that he is very very funny but he explains stuff for example that our politicians don't seem to understand and he is very smart. No-one will ever be like him again.

You should have had Cranston read the "this didn't just happened" part with the intensity Walter used to tell Skylar "I THE ONE WHO KNOCKS...I AM THE DANGER!!!! it would have had far more impact...ask him back to redo it... Or you should. It probably go viral.

For anyone going through any sort of opioid addiction including Heroin and want's to quit but is having a hard time doing it by yourself or just with rehab. Then I would suggest looking up to see if you have any Suboxone clinics in your area. I have been addicted to opioids and heroin for a long time and rehab was something that never helped me. Yet the drug Suboxone has multiple times. Yes it's basically replacing one drug for another. But Suboxone isn't something that is dangerous it might give you a minor high like it does me but it basically just gives me a bit of energy compared to being truly high. The main thing it does though is make it so I have zero urge to use opioids. The 3 times I have been in a Suboxone clinic I have stayed clean for a total of 4 combined years. Any time I left the clinic I started using again after 3 months. Some people unlike me I able to leave the clinic and not have to use Suboxone any longer and stay clean. That isn't the case for me I know myself and if I don't take Suboxone I will go back to using shortly after. Everyone is different just trying to throw out a helpful source for me that was able to get me to stop using opioids.

They declared bankruptcy, got sued for BILLIONS and plead guilty to three felonies. It's just a shame the federal government only actually got a couple hundred million, hopefully it doesn't get overturned in appeals and dick sack gets personally charged too.

I’ve been clean off opiates since 2015 and clean off Xanax since March 8th 2018 . But I was on methadone for about 3 years... A lot of people have distaste for methadone because people abuse it but some of us use it so we can function and don’t use other drugs while on it. It saved my life

As I stumble through the John Oliver archives and inevitably arrive at this sort of episode, I have to say that as an ex-heroin addict, this one hits home the most. I try to use the "T" word sparingly, but this is certainly a very triggering topic to me no matter who is discussing it. I've lost half of my life and more friends then I can count on two hands to this poison. There are times where I wonder, just how did man conceive of such remarkable, yet exceptionally lethal substances and allow them to permeate and wreak havoc on my society. There tend not to be many happy endings regarding stories such as mine, and I count myself fortunate every day to have somehow survived all those near fatal overdoses and suicide attempts beside. I have nothing but the highest praise for men like Joh Oliver, and commend him and all others who seek to raise awareness and funding about the dangerous, ubiquitous, and above all persistent scourge that is opioid addiction. And I call on all other recovering friends, who have fought and continue to fight this disease as I do, to take a note from Andy and Red (Shawshank Redemption): "I guess it comes down to a simple choice really. Get busy Living...or get busy Dying."

Again, O\one of the biggest problems with Opiod addiction in the US is the disgraceful lack of access by addicts to effective Opiod replacement therapy like Methadone and in particular Suboxone (a cleaner, safer version of Methadone with far fewer side effects). I probably shouldn't post this on such a public forum, but I was addicted to over the counter Opiod pills and in the 10+ years I've been on Opiod replacement I haven't had a single problem with Opiods. In Australia it is extremely easy to access such therapy, I have to walk 5 mins to my local chemist where I'm treated with friendliness and respect once a week to pick up my weekly dose. Our government has outlawed the sale of the kind of over the counter Opiods I was addicted to in recent years, pity it came too late for me...

Okay here is the thing: The site is still up. And Richard Kind, who is obviously supposed to be the "dorky" version of Sackler is, to me at least, the most chilling one. Because Walter White, Omar and Batman are fucking cool. But Kind's performance, this "I don't know gnihi"-vibe is so much more frustrating and frightening when you keep in mind that in the end this is about people dying. Like a damn Killerclown.

So do we not prescribe opioids to people in pain? People get addicted to opioids, this has been known for centuries, but there is no clear alternative other than just letting people writhe. Why bankrupt a company when another will just replace it? Never understood the logic.

Bro hydrocodone is amazing. I got stung by a stingray and they gave it to me as a painkiller and despite the huge amount of pain I was in, once it hit it was the greatest I ever felt. But since I was really scared I’d get addicted I didn’t take another one despite the immense pain I was in during the following week I didn’t take any of the big bottle they gave me.
