WV AG Lawsuit Targets Second Pharmacy In Prescription Painkiller Fight

December 22nd, 2016 by WCBC Radio

West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey’s lawsuit against a Grant County pharmacy alleges it dispensed an excessive amount of prescription opioids in violation of the state’s consumer protection laws.
 
Attorney General Morrisey contends Judy’s Drug Store Inc., of Petersburg, helped fuel the state’s opioid prescription crisis by dispensing nearly 1.8 million doses of hydrocodone and oxycodone, highly addictive painkillers, for a three-county region of fewer than 34,000 residents.
