J.&J. to Pay $2.2 Billion in Risperdal Settlement - NYTimes.com

I hate to be redundant but Big Pharma is a criminal syndicate gone berserk. This drug gives people diabetes almost instantly and was very aggressively marketed as having essentially no side effects and as the cure for everything from violent kids to nursing home patients who couldn't sleep. People died from the consequences of this drug and yet no one in the company is brought up on criminal charges. That is not justice. Johnson and Johnson made billions and billions of dollars of this crappy drug by lying about it and suppressing drug trials that showed it's problems. 2.2 billion is drop in the bucket to them.
