Are they going to be as severe as the ones that should be imposed on people who submit mobile links that don't even resolve on real computers?

J&J was charged with violating two New York insurance laws, with civil penalties of up to $5,000 per violation.

Marx almost had it right.  Apparently opiates are the opiate of the masses.

Let's be honest.  No one expected any differently from Johnson.  He's a sociopathic rat-farker who would sell out his own mother for a nickel.  But Johnson?  He's supposed to be one of the good guys!

Great thing about corporations is that they shield (But not completely) the officers from liability. That way they can focus on maximizing profits for their shareholders. Because fark your I got mine 🙂

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has said opioids have contributed to more than 400,000 deaths since 1997

.
I'd have guessed a lot more than that over 23 years.

Are they headquartered in Rock Ridge by any chance?

Civil charges?

You'd think with 400,000+ dead, they might go for criminal charges?

Naw, it was done in the name of capitalism, so it's cool. That's always not as bad. Somebody has to pay for all those dividends.

That was an eye-opener when I realized what "renting" is about.

It's about taking more than others, so that you can then sell it back to them in increments. There's nothing noble, hard-working, or wonderful about it. It's just about getting more, so you can lord it over somebody else, because you know they need it.

And look what a wonderful country we've built out of that mentality.

It's really a fraction of that, maybe 10,000 people. Most of the other people had pre-existing conditions or the cause of death was a heart attack or simply stopped breathing.

It's almost as many people as are killed by tobacco every year.

You reminded me of the Silicon Valley episode when the lawyer said "per use" in regards to their lacking Terms of Service.  I read it in that voice.

(and when Jared turns the phone sideways to see the calculation results is my fav.)

The most secure job ever created by mankind was lawyer for J&J.  Those guys are never out of work.
