W.VA. Attorney General reports another opioid settlement

West Virginia’s Attorney General Patrick Morrisey reports by email a settlement between his office and Walgreens for $83 million.

The settlement resolves a lawsuit that alleged the pharmacy chain failed to maintain effective controls on the distribution and dispensing of opioids in West Virginia.

Walgreens pharmacy is the latest to settle in a series of litigations that include Kroger, Walmart, CVS and Rite Aid.

Well over $177 million has been awarded to West Virginia in settlements since Sept.

The money will be distributed throughout the state to abate the massive problems caused by the flood of opioids into West Virginia.
