The state of Ohio has sued five major drug manufacturers for their role in the opioid epidemic. In the lawsuit filed Wednesday, state Attorney General Mike DeWine alleges these five companies "helped unleash a health care crisis that has had far-reaching financial, social, and deadly consequences in the State of Ohio." Named in the suit are: Purdue Pharma Endo Health Solutions Teva Pharmaceutical Industries and subsidiary Cephalon Johnson & Johnson and subsidiary Janssen Pharmaceuticals Allergan Ohio Sues 5 Major Drug Companies For 'Fueling Opioid Epidemic' Ok. I understand that to combat this is going to take a lot of money. I understand that these companies are the only ones that have that kind of money.

Now, you can't hold the doctors accountable because they were so inundated with advertisements?
