Drug Companies Accused of Fatal Deception

Hosted by

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.
