Small town Ohio fights back against big pharma….files a lawsuit at the state level

In 2012, healthcare professionals wrote 259 million prescriptions for opioids. Enough to medicate every adult in the united states, around the clock for a month.

The United States accounts for 4.9% of the world’s population. Yet, we consume 80% of the world’s opiates and 99 % of the world’s hydrocodone.

It’s time to fight back.

And small towns/counties in Ohio are fighting. Watch the press conference here, from the northeastern part of Ohio, and how they filed a 250 civil suit against big pharma.
