This is not about the opioid crisis or the lives that are being lost, this is about getting easy money the the state of California treasury. The money will be used to treat the victims who are lucky enough to survive. It stops nothing. Many more will die.

If Mr. Bonta was serious about the opioid crisis he would be urging the state to close the southern border where the bulk of these drugs are entering the US. He would also ask the federal government to help. Much easier to file a lawsuit against a major corporation doing business in California. Mr. Bonta is a politician of the worst kind.
