Court Finds Ohio Pharmacy Chains Responsible For Opioid Crisis


This could potentially be precedent setting…

A federal jury recently found CVS, Walmart, and Walgreens responsible for the opioid crisis in two Ohio counties, which is a first in The United States.

I disagree with this verdict. I think people have to be held responsible for their own choices, and that any and all drugs should be virtually unregulated by the state.

The doctors, pharmaceutical corporations, and the government are the real issues here—not some retailer.

That being said, I see a potential door open here….

A door to bring pharmaceutical executives into the courtroom, and hold them accountable for their role in the Covid-19 scam, executives from….Pfizer and Moderna come to mind here.

People are blaming the wrong entities by going after retail stores, but this could potentially wake enough of the country up to do something about the real monsters plaguing this country…

Here’s more on the story:

The Associated Press reports:

CVS, Walgreens and Walmart pharmacies recklessly distributed massive amounts of pain pills in two Ohio counties, a federal jury said Tuesday in a verdict that could set the tone for U.S. city and county governments that want to hold pharmacies accountable for their roles in the opioid crisis.

Lake and Trumbull counties blamed the three chain pharmacies for not stopping the flood of pills that caused hundreds of overdose deaths and cost each of the two counties about $1 billion, said their attorney, who in court compared the pharmacies’ dispensing to a gumball machine.

The Hill exclaims:

This decision was the first ever ruling against the retail pharmacy industry, and could set the tone for countless other lawsuits across the country that seek to hold pharmacies responsible for the flood of highly addictive opioid pills into communities. The crisis has killed more than half a million Americans to date.
