Attorney General Leevin Camacho is suing an opioid manufacturer in the local court for making false claims. The AG filed the suit just hours ago in the Superior Court marketing campaign and publications financed by Purdue to push its highly addictive opioids while downplaying the dangers of addiction with long-term use.

According to the complaint, there were over 97,000 opioid prescriptions dispensed in Guam between 2015-2019 and 200 doses of Naloxone, a medication used to reverse opioid overdoses, were dispensed at Guam Memorial Hospital from 2018 through July 2019.
