    Walgreens has ranged around a 19% market share for prescriptions, so I’d expect they handle within a standard deviation of about one in five of everything.

    CVS is bigger, so I’d expect them to actually handle more of a given drug.

    Saw the WP headline, checked some numbers, lazy reporting or clickbait, didn’t much care which.

    The pharmaceutical companies have much to answer for in the opioid crisis, but individuals need to accept their part in the epidemic.

    A quick trip to Google U: Walgreens bought straight from producers, failed to report potential over-use to the DEA as required by law, and apparently gave incentives to pharmacists who sold more of the pills.
