Feds hit Walmart with lawsuit over opioid prescriptions

The Department of Justice (DOJ) has filed suit against retail giant Walmart, alleging its pharmacies “unlawfully” distributed opioids at the height of the addiction crisis.

The complaint, filed Tuesday, follows a yearslong investigation by the DOJ’s Prescription Interdiction & Litigation Task Force and alleges Walmart’s pharmacies knowingly filled thousands of prescriptions for controlled substances that were not provided for legitimate medical needs.
