Kentucky Sues Walgreens For 'Dual Role' In The State's Opioid Crisis

Kentucky filed a lawsuit against Walgreens on Thursday for allegedly failing to adequately monitor its operations as it shipped and dispensed large quantities of opioids.

The lawsuit alleges the company fulfilled orders “for such large quantities of prescription narcotic pain medication that there could be no associated legitimate medical purpose for their use.”
