OHIO AND OPIATES
A legal battle that has been ongoing for years concluded recently. Two Ohio counties that were inundated with far more opioid pills than residents needed will now receive $650 million from pharmacy corporations actively involved in doling out addictive opioid painkillers to community members.
We’re a long ways away from being “out of the woods“ when it comes to the opiate epidemic. In states like Ohio, the state with the highest number of opiate deaths in the nation, much work is left to do to combat the harmful effects of opioid addiction.
