#ThinkBeforeYouDope: Indian police use Breaking Bad in anti-doping campaign
The hit show was featured in their recent post that is part of the larger #ThinkBeforeYouDope campaign against drug abuse. The iconic poster of Walter White (Bryan Cranston) and Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) was accompanied by the message "Breaking Bad habits is a good habit".
The post is timed perfectly to the release of "El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie", a movie that begins from where the popular tv show ended.
