 The Department of Justice of the United States (US) denounced the Walmart chain for having delivered opiates by accepting thousands of prescriptions considered “suspicious” by the authorities.

The federal government revealed that it had filed a civil lawsuit in a district court in the State of Delaware, alleging that, as a pharmacy operator, Walmart accepted thousands of prescriptions “knowing that they were not issued for legitimate medical purposes or in the usual use of clinical practice ”.

If found guilty, the company would face fines of up to $ 67,627 for each illegal prescription it has filled and $ 15,691 for each suspicious order it did not report to authorities.

The health crisis has killed an estimated 450,000 Americans in the past two decades.
