Attorneys representing several counties in West Virginia have filed federal lawsuits against drug companies and distributors, seeking billions in reimbursements for the devastation opioids have caused in the state, the Washington Post reports. Companies named include McKesson Corp., Cardinal Health, Walgreens and CVS, among others. The suits are among the first of their kind in the nation and represent a new front in the fight against the opioid crisis. Other states hit hard by the epidemic are reportedly considering similar action.
