Keep your meth out of our state! Sure, Breaking Bad glamorizes it by giving viewers hope that if you’re diagnosed with cancer and live on a teacher’s salary, you could start a meth lab to afford treatment. We at Chicken-Fried News have since learned that, well, reality just doesn’t happen that way.

KOCO.com recently reported two men from California were stopped and arrested near Interstate 40 and Meridian Avenue on charges of aggravated trafficking of methamphetamine and possession of marijuana.

Police seized 9.5 pounds of the drug and 70 grams of what we’re guessing wasn’t medically prescribed marijuana packed inside a Nissan Altima. Reporter Kelsey Powell illustrated the size of one ounce of meth by holding up an apple for the news camera. Since we’re OK at math, we’ll also tell you nine pounds is equal to 150 apples. Police estimated the meth was worth more than $10,000.
