John Oliver on The $24 Billion Drug Companies Give to Doctors

John Oliver Big Pharma

Last Week Tonight returned Sunday night and John Oliver’s main segment focused on the billions of dollars spent by big pharmaceutical companies to market prescription drugs to doctors.

Pharmaceutical companies spend $4 billion dollars a year marketing their drugs on tv, but that is nothing compared to the $24 billion they spend marketing to doctors.

The segment is equal parts hilarious, frustrating, and maddening.
