Oregon Is Set to Receive up to $330 Million in an Opioid Settlement

Oregon has now joined the ranks of states who’ve signed on to a $26 billion legal settlement with Johnson & Johnson and three drug distributors over the companies’ alleged roles in the opioid epidemic.

Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum announced on Twitter Monday that the state stands to receive up to $332 million from the agreement over the next 18 years, money that will be used on drug treatment and abuse prevention.

“These funds will make a huge difference in how we address substance use disorders going forward and will help put a stop to this decades-long epidemic that continues to cause death and heartache to countless Oregonians and their families,” Rosenblum tweeted.
