The True Story of Meth in New Mexico

by Rachel Baker on August 25, 2013

Nick Romeo, author and contributor to the, traveled to New Mexico to get the true story about the meth trade in New Mexico. This is a pretty long read, but if you are a fan of Breaking Bad, its totally worth the time.

On a recent afternoon in Albuquerque, an unmarked SUV pulled into a gas station on the corner of a busy intersection. Detective Brian Sallee lifted a pair of binoculars and scanned a parking lot a quarter mile down the road. “Have a look,” he said, handing me the binoculars and pointing to a chain-link fence, two picnic tables, and a food truck outside a tire repair shop. In ten minutes, two Mexican nationals were going to conduct a $28,000 drug deal with an undercover officer.
