More Money Coming to Opioid Restitution Fund

February 29th, 2024 by WCBC Radio

Maryland finalized settlements with Teva, Allergan, Walmart, and Walgreens, after multi-year investigations of their involvement in fueling the opioid crisis. Settlements of  $238 million will be used in Maryland’s efforts to fight the opioid crisis. The settlements also force these companies to stop engaging in practices that gave rise to the opioid crisis and take steps to prevent further illegal conduct.  All revenue received by the State will be placed in the Maryland Opioid Restitution Fund.
