CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire’s Executive Council has approved a contract for the investigation of potential claims regarding the fraudulent marketing of opioid drugs.

The council voted to authorize $75,000 in funding on Wednesday for the attorney general’s office to conduct initial investigations.

Gov. Maggie Hassan said as the state works to improve provider training and prevent the overprescribing of opioids, it is appropriate to investigate whether improper marketing of dangerous and addictive prescription opioids took place.
