ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - Reality in the illegal drug world is mimicking fiction.

Spokesman Kevin Abar of the federal Department of Homeland Security in Albuquerque, N.M., says distributors are selling methamphetamine tinted blue in the Four Corners region.

That mirrors AMC's hit drama "Breaking Bad," which depicted an Albuquerque-based meth operation that cooked up the drug with a blue hue.

KOB-TV (http://bit.ly/1a41xxq ) reports Abar says tinting meth blue is a way for distributors to advertise and brand their product.

He says the blue meth being sold makes people sick. He says it has been cut with chemicals to make it blue.

"Breaking Bad" last year ended its popular run after five seasons.
