A follow up article that talks about costs and projections and such for even beginning to tackle this problem and how it relates to settlement numbers.

I don't want to sound petty about things, but part of me lovea the idea of each state individually going after these companies, if only because it means it's gonna get real expensive for these guys real quick with all the legal fees they have to deal with.

As for Johnson and Johnson, they make a ton of stuff besides medicine, from shampoo to medical devices. Barring them from doing business might have some pretty tough economic drawbacks. goobster and I have talked about this idea in a previous thread. I'm still trying to figure out how I feel about it.
