Purdue Pharma is only one of the drug companies that did this. There are other companies who did the same on an even larger scale. Johnson and Johnson from the news this week is an example. Looking forward to an Opioids III piece. https://www.washingtonpost.com/national/2019/07/20/opioid-files/?utm_term=.10d6f5af720f

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!

I'm in love with what this crew gets out in the open. Thank you sincerely and truly.

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.

UGH! The jokes Oliver inserts are terrible,...

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
Seth Horras
Awesome Micheal Keaton did this.
Seth Horras
Wow, JO makes me laugh every f#@%ing episode. He's a national treasure.
kim okla
Great John Thx soooo much, LOL salamanders!

doing god's work John Oliver.
Amrita Chatterji
they also get trump's tax cut
Arthur Clements
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.
Dr. Kira
"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.
Ca Ad
I would say that having Michael Keaton, Bryan Cranston, and Michael K Williams play me is worth owning the opioid crisis....

Crisis pregnancy centers deceptively steer women away from abortion. They can be started way too easily by religious groups like, for instance, a late night talk show’s megachurch.
