Walgreens and West Virginia reached an $83m settlement over the company’s failure “to maintain effective controls as a distributor and dispenser against diversion that contributed to oversupply of opioids in the state,” state Attorney General Patrick Morrisey says in a statement.

  • Walgreens will pay settlement within eight-year period
  • West Virginia has already settled with Walmart, CVS, and Rite Aid, the statement adds
  • Kroger is last remaining defendant in litigation
