As our nation continues with attempts to combat the opioid overdose crisis, the regulations and requirements for stakeholders along the entire supply chain continue to evolve at a rapid pace. Recently the DOJ exercised its authority to reduce opioid production and DEA modified its opioid distribution quota rules in an attempt to minimize diversion. Further, state, city, and county litigations continue to escalate, with no end in sight.
