West Virginia Attorneys Are Suing Pharma for the Horrific Harm Their Opioids Have Done
Unlike heroin, pain killers are legitimate medicines available by prescription. So the opioid crisis that is destroying families in states like West Virginia is being propogated by legal drugs. Those who manufacture those drugs claim that they are not responsible. That is about to be tested in court.
We don't know the law here, neither does anyone else. But as these suits go forward we will all find out. And hopefully if nothing else the firms that manufacture these addictive drugs will be moved to do something about them. It's not like the current administration will do much, except reduce treatment and prevention in their so-called health reform act.
