Gadsden To Sue Over Pill Abuse

The city of Gadsden is joining in a national lawsuit, suing companies that distribute pain pills to pharmacies and hospitals. The suit accuses the companies of not reporting a spike in sales of pain pills, as required by law. Lawyers who are involved in the case say Gadsden has seen an unusually high number of prescriptions for pain pills and that the companies should have let the Feds know.
