Toledo Joins Other Cities In Suing Drug Makers Over Opioid Crisis
The City of Toledo is joining several other Ohio cities and counties in suing prescription drugmakers and distributors. Mayor Paula Hicks-Hudson says the city has spent more than 400 thousand dollars in responding to opioid-related emergency calls this year, and the companies need to be held accountable for their role in the opioid crisis. The suits accuse them of intentionally misleading the public about the dangers of opioids. The companies have denied wrongdoing.
