Kansas Att'y Gen. Secures $6 Million from Opiod Manufacturer


Kansas Attorney General and GOP gubernatorial hopeful Derek Schmidt told KGGF News Thursday that his office had secured at least $6 million from an opioid manufacturer for what he called its role in contributing to the national opioid addiction crisis.

The money comes from Mallinckrodt Pharmaceuticals as part of that company's bankruptcy proceedings.

The settlement is to be paid out over the next eight years with the money going to fight addiction and substance abuse in Kansas.

Schmidt was a guest on the Bill Small morning show on KGGF June 23rd.
