A PRE-CHRISTMAS rush on crystal meth has left dealers unable to cope with demand.
The popularity of TV series Breaking Bad has seen millions placing the street drug at the top of their gift lists.
Mother-of-two Emma Bradford said: “My husband is a massive Breaking Bad fan and keeps dropping hints about crystal meth.
“I normally just get him a bottle of Famous Grouse, it’s the first time in a decade he’s actually known what he wants.
“But I’ve tried every street corner in the most intimidating areas of town and all I could get was crack. Fingers crossed he won’t notice the difference.
“The dealer said crack is just as good.”
Drug dealer Tom Logan said: “Meth wasn’t popular in the UK pre-Breaking Bad, especially not among the Christmas gift market.
“I managed to import some and made up these little presentation boxes containing meth, pipe and a little booklet of some quirky, interesting meth facts.
“I wrote ‘Merry Christ-METH’ on the packaging which is quite good even if I do say so myself.
“Hot cakes doesn’t even begin to cover it. Hopefully I can get my supply chain locked down for when they all come back for seconds on Boxing Day.”
