NSHello and happy the day before Turkey. STAT reporter Andrew Joseph is here on behalf of Pharmalot. We’re in a family home in the heart of Texas, so we drink the stimulating cups they offer and drink it as soon as possible to catch up with some of the really short people running around. From the time they did their best to keep us from kneeling and the time they made the puff pastry for tomorrow, we also put together some interesting information. This newsletter has a holiday on this side of the pond and a short break until next week, but here at STAT we wish you and your happy and healthy Thanksgiving.

A federal jury said Tuesday that three retail pharmacy chains were in Ohio in a verdict that could tune the U.S. city and county governments that want to hold pharmacies accountable for the role of pharmacies in the opioid crisis. He said he had recklessly distributed large amounts of painkillers to the two counties. Associated Press reported.. The county blamed CVS (CVS), Walgreens (WBA), And Wal-Mart (WMTTheir lawyers said they did not stop the flood of tablets, which cost about $ 1 billion in each of the two counties, causing deaths from overdose of hundreds of people. This is the first time a pharmacy company has completed a trial to protect itself in a drug crisis that has killed 500,000 Americans in the last two decades.
