A SCOTUS Victory For Pill Mill Doctors

I originally posted about this argument before SCOTUS in March here:

Physician Liability for #OUD (Arguments in Ruan v. US)

The High Court ruled in favor of the pill mill prescribers, setting aside their 25 year prison sentences.

“After a defendant produces evidence that he or she was authorized to dispense controlled substances, the government must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the defendant knew that he or she was acting in an unauthorized manner, or intended to do so.”

A link to the story is here.
