AG promises more lawsuits against drug manufacturers

Shortly before Attorney General Andy Beshear took on Kentucky Power in a press conference at the University of Pikeville, he spoke to the members of UNITE Pike about the region’s opioid addiction crisis. Beshear said he plans to expand his efforts in suing drug manufacturers for the damage prescription drugs have caused in Kentucky.

Beshear also said a pilot program aimed at deactivating unneeded prescription drugs is also being tested in Floyd and Perry Counties through the use of environmentally safe deactivation kits.
