Will Big Pharma Ever Face Justice for the Opioid Crisis?
The Supreme Court recently blocked a bankruptcy deal that would have given full immunity to the members of the Sackler family who once controlled Purdue Pharma, the maker of OxyContin. Trevor Noah calls out the frustrating contradictions within the initial deal and shares his thoughts on what it would take for the heads of these corporations to be brought to justice. But first, Michael Che tries to get to the bottom of Big Pharma’s role in the opioid epidemic and Trevor covers the ineffective, lobbyist-influenceced solutions brought forward by Congress and then-President Trump. Trevor then discusses the causes, effects, and realities of the opioid crisis with documentary filmmaker Alex Gibney, director of “The Crime of the Century.”
