Florida is suing CVS and Walgreens for allegedly contributing to the state and national opioid crisis.
Attorney General Pam Bondi announced Friday that the two drugstore giants were being added into an existing case against Purdue Pharma, which makes Oxycontin, and several other manufacturers.
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.
“We will continue to pursue those companies that played a role in creating the opioid crisis,” Bondi said. “Thousands of Floridians have suffered as a result of the actions of the defendants.”
Today, I filed an amended complaint in our ongoing court action against some of the nation’s largest opioid manufacturers/distributors for their role in the opioid crisis. We’ll continue to pursue those companies that played a role in creating this crisis: https://t.co/6hWhikItkH
