The police department in Gloucester, Massachusetts has decided to take a completely different strategy in combating the war on drugs. They are posting the contact information of the top five pharmaceutical CEOs. They are urging citizens to politely call the offices of these CEOs to inform them that their drugs are the ones people are getting hooked on, and asking what they’re doing to combat addiction.

Do you support the police departments efforts? Should more departments make this move? Let us know in the comments below.
