AG Cameron Files Opioid Lawsuit

Attorney General Daniel Cameron is seeking a lawsuit to hold CVS accountable for allowing a surplus of opioids to become accessible in the midst of an opioid crisis in Kentucky.Between 2006 and 2014, CVS pharmacies in Kentucky purchased more than 151 million dosage units of oxycodone and hydrocodone from its own distribution centers and third-party distributors, accounting for nearly 6.1 percent of the total dosage units in the Commonwealth.“As both distributor and pharmacy, CVS was in a unique position to monitor and stop the peddling of these highly-addictive drugs from their stores, yet they ignored their own safeguard systems…” said Attorney General Cameron.
