Florida is suing CVS and Walgreens for allegedly contributing to the state and national opioid crisis.

The article goes on to state the following:

The suit argues that CVS and Walgreens contributed to the opioid epidemic by overselling painkillers and not being diligent enough with stopping illegal sales, according to a statement on the Florida Attorney General’s website.

  1. Why is it politicians across the country are hellbent on suing Big Pharma and pharmacies re the opioid epidemic yet turn a blind eye to the 80%+ illegal drugs, including the heroin, that enter our country on a daily basis and fails to pursue the over 2,000 drug cartels operating within our country? We all know the answer.
