The opioid epidemic is a corporate murder spree that killed more Americans than the Vietnam war, and its deaths carry on, accelerating during the pandemic. The enrichment to its principal architects outstrips the Rockefeller fortune, and they stand to retain that wealth.
@ben reminder that tobacco kills 7x more than opioids, including not only the consensual users but also the people who aren't even users and just have the misfortune to be proximate to the user (such as from being their child).
don't forget to be 7x as outraged at tobacco companies
