Mon 2-5-2024

(St. Paul, MN)-  Minnesota will be adding to the money it's already received to help fight opioid addiction statewide.  The Minnesota Attorney General's Office says the state will receive just over four-point-four-million dollars as part of a nationwide settlement with Publicis Health announced last week.  The company acted as a marketing arm for drug companies during the opioid crisis, developing advertising and sales strategies to help increase the amount of medication prescribed to patients.  Minnesota has now received about 564-million dollars from settlements related to the opioid crisis.
