    Huge company causes actual damage through reckless selling of drugs to millions of Americans: Fine 1/1000 of their yearly revenue.Dude sells pot to a few of his friends: In prison for years.Makes perfect sense.

    What about bedridden and disabled did you not understand? I was a clean room technician who made chemo, antibiotics and total parenteral nutrition for homecare. I have been bedridden and homebound for years now. I think about ending this suffering everyday you uncompassionate, unthinking sheep. Everyone is an illness, accident or surgery away from chronic pain so when you need pain relief in the future there won't be any.

    No I am in pain because my hip needs to be removed again. There are people in pain that are not getting high from their medication all they get is lessened pain. You may get your wish but my death will be to escape the agony of untreated pain.

    Lmfaoo John Oliver needs to be protected at all costs

    These people KNOW they are murdering for money.And don't care.

  • Sammy Aus Cux  (1 day ago))

    +MrTomservo85 just a few people started getting addicted by taking pain killers for fun. Most got them prescribed for pain or started their addiction some other way. A lot of times it's not really a choice. When you're in a lot of pain' you take whatever your doc gives you, so can be pain free. People in pain don't think about addiction. They think about pain.

    +Astro Wolvez that's true. Any weak minded person, ignorant person, or any person willing to put foreign substances into their body without researching them first, just because a doctor said so. But any person willing to take the time to use their smartphone for anything other than Snapchat can weigh the risks by a quick Google search. Or if you're ignorant and just wanting to take drugs for recreation and get addicted, why should I have sympathy because you're currently addicted? Society as a whole n...

    Bryan Cranston is a delight, and I don't believe anyone has ever eaten a turkey sandwich quite as evocatively as Michael Keaton.

  • KornnerStudios  (Apr 16, 2019))

    Wait...so this SOB's name is *Richard* Sackler?I feel there was a lot of missed opportunity for Dick Sack jokes (even with ''The Sackler'). Which he deserves.

  • Aaqilian5.0  (3 days ago))

    KornnerStudios Naw Oliver’s intellect and standard for humour and commentary is a shade above yours. Fucking sad sack

  • Damian Reloaded  (Apr 26, 2019))

    This is probably the reason he went full villain. That 400 people town was the town he grew up in, where all the (then) kids would name call him Dick Sack from across the street every day and pull his pants down.

    And to think people get jail for smoking some weed

  • tang roro  (1 day ago))

  • Marksman  (Apr 17, 2019))

    John Oliver is a master at trolling hateful plutocrats.

    +Gabryal Sansclair have him killed???.. For what?? Having nad writers???.. No one of any importance.. No one with any influence even considers this little english f/\&&!ts existance. Lmao.. Atleast he is in HBO.. No one watches cable anymore..

  • Gabryal Sansclair  (May 10, 2019))

    I think he's actually very brave. Someone somewhere has GOT to have at least made a passing statement that suggested having him killed

  • Manhasset Dental Arts  (Apr 17, 2019))

    the fda should be investigated for approving too soon

  • Patrick Lloyd  (May 8, 2019))

    This sounds like a symptom of America's for-profit healthcare system.

  • MaiAolei  (May 12, 2019))

    Excellent use of the word symptom in connection with healthcare! Whether intentional or not.I love such little gems of wit.No sarcasm here.

  • kahlil brown  (Apr 19, 2019))

    Did anyone think of John Oliver's janitor at the end???

  • Stoodmuffin Personal  (May 9, 2019))

    +earthbind83 Not by LIGHTYEARS. I bet the Rasin one was top tier

    You know, this is not the worst mess Last Week Tonight has made at the end of an episode, by a long shot. XD
