Iowa Racehorse Tests Positive For Meth, Meanwhile Walter White Gets A Statue in New Mexico
Walter White Gets Statue
The city of Albuquerque, New Mexico, will be putting up statues honoring the two main characters of Breaking Bad, once again reminding us all that, besides green chile, the New Mexico state capitol doesn’t have much going for it besides the AMC award-winning series that spanned five seasons from 2008 to 2013. The statues were created by artist Trevor Grove in 2019, with Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan donating the statues to the city in conjunction with Sony Pictures Television. Indeed, in trying times like these, where the entire nation can’t seem to decide whether confederate statues should stay or go, it’s nice to see that we can find some common statue ground within our favorite fictional methamphetamine manufactures.
Racehorse Tests Positive for Meth
After winning its third race of the day, a horse named Drag Malibu received a drug panel and consequently tested positive for meth in Iowa. "The horse had trace amounts of methamphetamine in his body when the horse ran in the race," said Brian Ohorilko, administrator of the Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission. Ohorilko told news agencies that he sees positive drug tests a handful of times throughout the year, but that a horse testing positive for meth is nearly unheard of. It’s unclear how fast the horse ran the races, or if it sat in its trailer peaking out of the curtains chain smoking Pall Mall cigarettes for twelve hours after the race.
