Hello, my name is Rich Jones. I'm a reporter doing a follow up about the recent "60 Minutes" episode, _The Whistleblower_.

In the episode, your company is named by Joe Rannazzisi, former head of the DEA Office of Diversion Control, who accuses your company of deliberately ignoring the illegal diversion of hundreds of millions of pills to rogue pharmacies and pain clinics - providing the rocket fuel for a crisis that, over the last two decades, has claimed 200,000 lives.

So far, I haven't seen any public response from McKesson about the episode, so I'd like to know your company's official position on the claims made during it.

Specifically:

Are the claims that McKesson diverted hundreds of millions of pills to rogue pharmacies and pain clinics true? If so, how was that allowed to happen?
Does McKesson take responsibility for part of the current opioid epidemic?
Was McKesson influential in the authorship and lobbying of the "Marino" bill mentioned in the episode?

Thanks so much for your time,
Rich Jones
