Ohio Community Leaders Discuss Signing on to Billion-Dollar Opioid Deal


Community leaders around Ohio are weighing whether to sign on to the $26 billion opioid settlement with three drug distributors and a manufacturer. They’re going over the specifics as they consider their final decisions, which could bring big money but some fear could also be costly.

Ohio stands to get a good-sized chunk of the settlement between some 4,000 entities and distributors McKesson, AmerisourceBergen and Ohio-based Cardinal Health, along with drug maker Johnson & Johnson.
