US opioid crisis: Oklahoma takes Johnson & Johnson to court

Oklahoma court case could have major implications for United States’ opioid crisis.

The first crucial test of whether US states can hold drug makers responsible for the opioid crisis starts in Oklahoma on Tuesday.

Lawyers will argue that company Johnson & Johnson is to blame for the widespread addiction that has devastated the state.

The case will likely affect around 2,000 other pending cases across the country.
