Adam Duxter reports. http://chic.clipsyndicate.com/video/playlist/12493/7374064?cpt=8&wpid=2637 WISC 6th owi. it's a lawsuit that's been months in the making between dane county and some of the largest drug manufacturers... . but today, dane county executive joe parisi announced the suit has been filed. our news3 reporter adam duxter joins us with what this lawsuit could mean for the people of dane county, and how it could impact opioid abuse in our community - adam. today joe parisi debuted the lawsuit which takes action against drug manufacturers like purdue pharma, drug distributors, like cardinal health, and even pharmacies, like cvs, walgreens, and walmart. (((joe parisi, dane county executive)) "while these companies have made obscene profits, the epidemic they've cause has taken a huge toll on our community" this was the message today from county executive joe parisi... that companies have cost... and now they will pay... parisi says the opioid epidemic is coinuing to grow in madison... something that police officers agree with. (((bernie albright//police officer))) "this wasn't happening five years ago... now it's basically a daily thing in the city of madison" according to wisconsins presiption drug monitoring program, more than 300,000 prescriptions have been dispensed for residents of dane county per year since 20-13, even though the county is home to roughly 500,000 people. officers like bernie albright say this didn't used to be the case. (((bernie albright///police officer))) "when you go back maybe a dozen years as a patrol officer on the street or even a detective, this is not really an issue for us.... you may see an occasional pharmaceutical abus case, but nothing more than that really" now parisi wants the drug makers, distributors, and sellers, to pay. (((joe parisi///dane county executive))) "we believe that they profit from these drugs, but we are bearing the expenses, and they also need to bear the expenses that they are responsible for creating" now during today's press conference, parisi didn't make it clear how much money the lawsuit could potentially bring to dane county. wisconsin residents might recall a 20-17 lawsuit where almost two thirds of counties in the state filed a similar suit against pharmaceutical companies... ...but with cases like these, there's no timetable to how short or how long they could take. thanks
