Johnson & Johnson settles claim that they fueled the opioid crisis with $230 million settlement

Johnson & Johnson has agreed to a $230 million dollar settlement in response to claims that the company helped to fuel the opioid crisis.

Johnson & Johnson will make a series of payments over the next nine years to cover the total amount. The company is also ending their manufacturing and distribution of opioids across the state and country.


Johnson & Johnson said in response that their settlement isn’t an admission of liability or wrongdoing, and that the marketing and promotion of important prescription pain medications were appropriate and responsible.
