March 4, 2023 – “Never seen a mess quite like this!” tweeted straphanger Carolyn Crapo, 58, posting images last week of what appeared to be a botched rolling meth lab at the Woodlawn station in the Bronx. “Was Walter White trying to synthesize some [pseudoephedrine] or what?” 

“I’ve seen shooting up, the weed,” a hardened MTA conductor told The Post. “Cooking up is the only thing I haven’t seen.” 

The scene turned out to be more Breaking Sad than “Breaking Bad” though. Based on the pills’ packaging, the cornucopia of smashed Claritin, Zyrtec and Allegra pills left behind all lacked the chemical pseudoephedrine, a key ingredient for making meth.
