Iowa Attorney General Joining Battle Against Opioid Crisis

IOWA  --  Iowa is joining the call for drug manufacturers to be held accountable for their role in the opioid epidemic.

Attorney General Tom Miller joined 38 other state attorneys general in asking lawmakers to pass stiffer penalties for opioid producers. They argue manufacturers have a duty to prevent drugs from entering the illicit market and those who fail to report suspicious transactions or maintain effective controls should face steeper penalties.
