Four major national drugstore chains are suing doctors in Ohio for fueling the opioid crisis by overprescribing highly addictive pain killers — as the pharmacies themselves face blame for it, according to a report Wednesday.
Pharmacies including Walgreens, CVS, WalMart and Rite Aid — which are also being sued over the epidemic by two counties in the state  — claim local doctors are actually the ones responsible for the public health nightmare, The Hill reported.
