AUSTIN (ABC/Staff) – Six states, including Texas, file lawsuits against Purdue Pharma — accusing the company of using deceptive marketing to increase drug sales that helped fuel opioid overdose deaths. Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton said, “In the face of abundant evidence showing that the drug was dangerous and that long-term use could lead to addiction, Purdue saw fit to exchange destroyed lives for financial gain.” The other states are Florida, Nevada, North Carolina, North Dakota, and Tennessee.
