Hopefully, you poured out a little liquor for Breaking Bad when the clock struck 9 p.m. last night. The Huffington Post is keeping the memory of Walter Hartwell White and his criminal exploits alive by taking data on total meth labs incidents from the El Paso Interlligence Center (EPIC) and National Security System (NSS) and creating this infographic. Saying the Midwest has a little problem would be kind.

It shows a map of the U.S. broken down by the number of meth labs and dumpsites found in each state. Upon first glance, it also appears that the infographic is providing step-by-step instructions for making "shake and bake" meth, but it's really explaining how pharmaceutical companies are aiding this process, and meth production as a whole. 

The Huffington Post also shares fun facts, such as how there has been an increased in meth-related burn victims at hospitals, even though meth lab incidents have decreased in recent years. It also costs $230,000 to treat a meth lab burn victim, most of which are less than 4-years-old.
