Opioid Epidemic: Time for a Fundamental Reset

| Medical Drugs

Every day in Alabama, two or three people die from an opioid overdose-related issue. People are dying needlessly because there are too many pills in circulation. Rhon Jones, Beasley Allen’s Toxic Torts Section Head, talks about the need for a fundamental reset in regulating opioid manufacturing and distribution. The firm has filed a number of opioid lawsuits on behalf of local governments and represents the State of Alabama against Purdue Pharmaceuticals. The lawsuits are intended to hold drugmakers accountable for their marketing of the drugs and how the deceptive marketing practices contributed to the creation of the opioid epidemic that threatens the core of many communities.
