In April, America reached a record 12-month high of 100,000 deaths by drug overdose. 200 protesters rallied outside the DOJ to demand prosecution of the Sackler family. One of the attendees was Ed Bisch, who founded Relatives Against Purdue Pharma after losing his son to an Oxycontin overdose in 2001. He joins Hari Sreenivasan to discuss the opioid crisis alongside "Dopesick" author Beth Macy.
