Pharmacy Chains in Ohio Will Face Trial Over Role in Opioid Crisis

A civil trial has begun in the state of Ohio in regards to the opioid crisis. Chain pharmacies such as CVS, Walgreens, and Walmart are being sued in federal court over their role in perpetuating the opioid epidemic. They are being sued for their reckless dispensing of pain medications and ignoring the red flags of patient addiction. If the companies lose the trial, they could be expected to pay billions of dollars to compensate their damage to the victims, as well as government entities and taxpayers who have footed the bill in response to the crisis.
