In this March 12, 2017 photo, The McDowell County Courthouse is seen, in Welch, W.Va. Mayor Reba Honacker filed a lawsuit in February 2017, at the McDowell County Courthouse, two blocks from her office in Welch, West Virginia, against five of the largest U.S. painkiller distributors. She wants them to answer for profiting from the region's opioid epidemic fueled by excessively large pill shipments over a decade and then use any proceeds to establish a local drug-rehabilitation center.
