he wouldn't need to be cooking meth to get rich, that kind of process would revolutionize chemistry
That's right, when Walter runs out of pseudo and switches his cook to make the blue meth, he would have been maybe technically not making meth any less pure, but it would have been half as potent. That detail has always bugged me.
Like cocaine, amphetamines aren't normally regarded as causing physical dependence (not in the same way that alcohol, opiates and benzodiazapines are). The usual characteristics of are tolerance and a withdrawal syndrome and amphetamine use produces neither of these things.
Which isn't to say that people don't get fucked up and addicted to it, and the distinction is often regarded as a moot one these days. But you'll never need to be admitted to hospital to detox from amphetamine.
Calling methamphetamine "crystal" is dumb. All drugs are crystallized at the last step of synthesis or extraction. Yep, that's right, you might be taking "crystal acetaminophen".
