OMFG! Auf den Straßen von Kansas ist seit einiger Zeit Blaues Meth aufgetaucht welches vermutlich durch die Serie Breaking Bad inspiriert wurde. Auf dem Blog des KCPD findet sich hierzu folgendes:
In the last two months or so, police have started seeing a new trend in drugs in Kansas City: blue meth. It had shown up at a few other spots around the country, but we’ve only recently been recovering it around here. We haven’t seen a huge amount, but it was enough that I wanted to tell you about it so you know to call police if you see something like it.
Our Drug Enforcement Unit has several theories about why some meth manufacturers are making it blue. One is that the field test police use to determine whether a substance is methamphetamine is blue, and perhaps criminals are making the meth the same color to make the test harder to read. But the tests continue to work just as well on the blue meth as they do on any other, and besides, all drugs that are field tested are later re-tested for confirmation in our crime lab. Another theory is that the blue could be the mark of the manufacturer, like how ecstasy makers stamp pills with pictures to indicate where they came from or that they’re “high quality.” Still another hypothesis is that the manufacturers are simply copying the TV show on AMC called “Breaking Bad,” which features a character who makes meth and dyes it blue.
Und wenn der Koch von dem Zeug sich Heisenberg nennt … Nicht das ich das für gut heißen würde, aber wie geil wäre das bitte? In der Serie entsteht die blaue Farbe übrigens durch den Ersatz von Pseudoephedrin durch Methylamin. via langeweile src kcpd
