In a nutshell, it focusses on the Big Pharma corporations who are profiting out of the opioid epidemic. But it highlights, that it’s only when executive compensation is challenged that things will change.

I think that we need class actions that target executives personally – they’re hiding behind the corporate veil. They need to risk losing their wealth, pensions and going to jail – this will perhaps scare them into good practice.

Thoughts?
