Phar­ma­cies fight opi­oid cri­sis claims

Antelope Valley Press - - BUSINESS -

COLUM­BUS, Ohio — Phar­macy chains are fight­ing claims that they’re to blame for the opi­oid cri­sis in two Ohio coun­ties. Cuya­hoga and Sum­mit coun­ties ar­gue that chains such as CVS, Rite Aid and Wal­greens con­trib­uted to the prob­lem by fill­ing an “ex­ces­sive vol­ume” of opi­oid pre­scrip­tions. A trial fo­cus­ing on those claims is sched­uled for later this year.
