US- Drug Companies’ Liability for the Opioid Epidemic

This is going to be interesting .scratch

N Engl J Med 2017; 377:2301-2305 December 14, 2017

"The opioid epidemic has claimed more than 300,000 lives in the United States since 2000 and could claim another half million over the next decade. Although heroin and illicitly manufactured fentanyl account for an increasing proportion of opioid-involved overdoses, the majority of persons with opioid addiction started with prescribed painkillers.
The search for solutions has spread in many directions, and one tentacle is probing the legal accountability of companies that supply opioids to the prescription market."

"It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change"
Charles Darwin (1809-1882)
