Society is not against drugs nor has it waged a war against drugs - caffeine is incredibly popular! We have had a war between drugs or a war against particular drugs.
And in very high dosages in rare cases it can be lethal too.

Crowdsourcing - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Crowdsourcing

Crowdsourcing is the practice of obtaining needed services, ideas, or content by soliciting contributions from a large group of people, and especially from an online community, rather than from traditional employees or suppliers. This process is often used to subdivide tedious work or to fund-raise startup companies and charities, and can also occur offline.

Another way for pharma to collaborate.

Battery that dissolves in the body could power embedded health sensors

Battery that dissolves in the body could power embedded health sensors | Digital Pharma | Scoop.it

Embeddable sensors that can track a person's vitals could eventually be a boon for healthcare, but something equally small, portable, and safe is going to have to power those sensors.

 

Researchers from the University of Illinois may have an answer: batteries that slowly decompose in the body. Using magnesium and either iron, tungsten, or molybdenum, the researchers were able to build a small battery that delivered a constant output for at least 24 hours. Operating voltage varies by element, ranging from approximately 0.45V to 0.75V, and by stacking cells in series, the researchers say that they were able to create a battery strong enough to power a conventional LED.

 

Sitting in a salt-water solution at 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit, it took a four-cell battery 11 days to break apart; the temperature was then increased to 185 degrees, almost fully dissolving the battery after another eight days. That battery weighed about 3.5 grams, with cells measuring 3 cm by 1.3 cm and placed 4mm apart. The researchers say the materials are both biocompatible and benign to the environment.
