CVS Fined $75M in Meth Case Settlement

John Commins, for HealthLeaders Media, October 15, 2010

Smurfers inundated CVS stores in Los Angeles and Orange Counties, and Las Vegas to purchase cough and cold remedies, sometimes cleaning out store shelves. For more than a year, CVS failed to change its sales practices to stop the illicit trade.

The government has agreed not to pursue criminal charges against CVS, which has accepted responsibility for the illegal conduct and has agreed to implement a compliance and ethics program over the next three years.
CVS has entered into a separate five-year compliance agreement with the DEA.
