FROM THIS EPISODE

Two California district attorneys have sued five drug companies for telling consumers and doctors that painkillers are safer than they really are — producing an epidemic of deaths by drug overdose. We talk with Tony Rackauckas of Orange County. Also, with no incumbents running for Sheriff or two seats on the Board of Supervisors, Los Angeles County voters have historic opportunities to make change. We hear about the available choices. 

Image-for-WWLA.jpgLater, on To the Point, more on the nationwide epidemic of prescription drug overdoses — with more than 100 people dying every day.
