(Newser) – It’s a story that’s generated it’s fair share of Breaking Bad headlines: Secondary school teacher Macphallen Kuwale was slapped with three-and-a-half years in prison after detectives say they uncovered a million-dollar cocaine operation inside his home. According to the Guardian, police found more than 100 grams of cocaine, hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of cutting agents, and a pressing machine in the alleged cocaine lab. As one South Wales detective told the Mirror: "He was involved in street level dealing as well as a sophisticated wholesale operation … It was totally unusual. It is not something that you come across everyday."

He was probably just making crack, because all of the white people moved out of his neighborhood and took all the resources with them. Black people are always law-abiding citizens. Just ignore the fact that 85% of black people have used crack.

If he cuts his stuff he should get life. ;) but if it's pure, take a sample for me.
