John Snow didn’t want the Iron Throne and the Mumbai Police doesn’t want you to use drugs. As Game of Thrones came to an end after mesmerizing audiences for over eight years, social media was awash with reactions to the Game of Throne’s final episode. Utilizing the social media trend, the Mumbai Police took to twitter with a cheeky reminder on the perils of using drugs and how you can, and must, always say no to drugs. A meme shared by the Mumbai police featured a picture of Jon Snow, one of the most popular Game of Thrones’ characters, and his famous line “I don’t want it”, said many a times on the show in reference to the Iron Throne.
Accompanied by the hashtag GOTit?, the official handle of the police force captioned the meme “When a friend suggests trying drugs!”
Twitterati were impressed with the police force’s witty and creative way of sending out a public service message.

Good initiative by Mumbai Cops using #GoT for spreading anti-drugs awareness in today's youth. Probably at least this will help them!— 🇮🇳 ɖʀ. ք. ʋ. ӄǟռɛȶӄǟʀ (chowkidar) 🇮🇳 (@parijatvk) May 20, 2019
