Kudos to Chief Campanello in Gloucester

Live in Gloucester, Massachusetts and you want to cease
Using drugs? Now you can turn yourself in to police.
Chief has said he won't arrest the addicts who arrive...
That he'll try to get them into treatment, where they'll thrive.

I applaud his motivation... Wants to save some lives;
Sick of notifying mothers, fathers, husbands, wives
That someone they love has accidentally OD'd.
He's aware it isn't jails, but health care, junkies need.

Problem is facilities are running out of beds
And the Chief has been advised of issues with the Feds.
Those could hamper this new effort by the Gloucester cops...
Still the program's worth attempting if one addict stops.
