State of Ohio Suing Drug Manufacturers Over Misleading Marketing Campaigns
Several drug manufacturers are being accused of providing marketing campaigns that misled doctors and patients about the dangers of opioids and the possibility of overdose. A recent New York Times story sheds light on accusations that drug manufacturers have a hand in the opioid epidemic, and potentially even a share of the blame.
Ohio Attorney General Mr. DeWine is now stepping in and suing drug manufacturers in a case very similar to a 2015 Mississippi filing, which is still pending. A similar case in West Virginia involved a settlement well into the tens of millions.
According to the New York Times, “Attorney General Mr. DeWine charged in his suit, spending “millions of dollars on promotional activities and materials that falsely deny or trivialize the risks of opioids while overstating the benefits of using them for chronic pain.” This case is likely to have an impact in future states, as the opioid crisis continues to grip the nation.
