Sorry, this is nothing more than a shake down. There is no demonstrative connection between prescription use of opioids and non medical use. prescription use has come down only to see abuse go up.

since it has become so much more difficult to divert prescriptions those seeking them have resorted to fentanyl and heroin which is not the fault of J&J or any other company.

The real cause it the drug war that too many nations practice. this has led the over dose issues we have seen. it is not legal sellers of drugs or their advertising. quit buying into this sham sold by politicians and the media, the reason it exist is to simply redirect blame and shake down the companies by relying on ignorance
