    Worldwide sales for the full-year 2018 were $81.6 billion

Maybe if all 50 states can make a case it will be something of impact. I'm of the opinion J&J, and the other 2 corporations charged in Oklahoma, should be barred from doing business in America. Let a competitor come in who isn't going to create a drug epidemic that will be a burden on families, hospitals, and taxpayers for the next 20+ years if not longer. It could be argued they've created a problem that will never be solved completely if you consider the addiction rates of those raised in homes with a parent who is an addict. I'm not sure if it is possible to bar someone from operating in America but in a perfect world it would be.
