Palm Beach County joins a growing list of local governments throughout the country, filing lawsuits against some of the biggest names in the drug industry. The PBC lawsuit filed late last week, accuses companies like Walgreens, CVS-Health and Johnson & Johnson, of fueling the area’s opioid epidemic – which killed nearly 600 people in PBC last year alone. We hear from PBC Mayor Melissa McKinlay and attorneys for the county, and get a firsthand look at the impact of opioids on one South Florida family. Plus, NSU Law Professor Michael Flynn helps explain the ins and outs of this latest lawsuit.
