Hancock County Commissioners are moving forward with a lawsuit against pharmaceutical companies that pushed opioids. Commissioner Tim Bechtol said they aren’t alone in the fight.
Bechtol said that there’s no downside to doing this.
The lawsuit is part of an effort to hold the pharmaceutical companies accountable. It will also help reimburse the entities involved for their efforts against the opioid epidemic.
