Did you know thousands of doctors in Minnesota are breaking the law, in the middle of the opioid crisis?
The 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS investigative team found state regulators are doing little to enforce the law.

On 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS Monday at 10 p.m., a widow who lost her husband to addiction responds to the findings. Plus, a state regulator explains why the law isn't being enforced.
