Next time you head to the pharmacy, you could see some interesting new signs. Drug makers, lawmakers, police, and pharmacists have launched a new campaign to fight meth.

Signs warn people that police are watching and taking names of people who might be buying medications to make meth. It's a process known as smurfing, and authorities hope raising awareness about smurfing penalties will deter people from trying.

State representatives say they want to fight crime without keeping sick people from getting the help they need.

The signs are not mandatory. Each store can decide whether to display them.
