Oklahoma AG on the "shameful stream of commerce" that led to the opioid crisis

In a first-of-its-kind case, a judge is punishing Johnson & Johnson for its role in the opioid crisis. A judge ordered the health care giant to pay $572 million dollars to Oklahoma.

Oklahoma Attorney General Mike Hunter, who led the landmark lawsuit, joins “CBS This Morning” to discuss the decision.
