Allegany County officials said Thursday they will pursue the creation of a board to study ways to invest nearly $1 million received so far from Maryland’s opioid settlement. Maryland was awarded $400 million as a result of a class action lawsuit litigated in 2022 against several pharmaceutical companies stemming from the opioid crisis. The funding is being distributed to counties across Maryland for use in battling the crisis.
