The Sackler family, owners of Purdue Pharma, maker of one of the most widely used opioids, reached an agreement on a $4.3 billion settlement with 15 states. Massachusetts and Maine have accpeted the deal, while Connecticut, Rhode Island, Vermont, and New Hampshire did not. Maya Shwayder and Dara Kennedy will talk with Attorneys General Maura Healey (MA) and William Tong (CT) to discuss their decisions and what the settlement means for families and cities who have filed suit.
