A chemistry professor is part of an ongoing investigation after allegedly getting students in Japan to produce ecstasy in Breaking Bad-style lessons.
According to Kyodo News agency, the 61-year-old pharmacology professor based on Matsuyama University in the western province of Japan is suspected of asking and directing students to make MDMA in 2013.

FRANK describes MDMA as
“A popular club drug that’s sold in pills (ecstasy) or as a powder (MDMA). When taken orally, ecstasy normally takes 30 minutes to kick in, but it could take as little as 20 minutes, or it may take over an hour or more.”
He went on to add,
“Users tend to feel high for 2 to 4 hours. You might still experience some physical effects, like a fast heart beat or insomnia (not being able to sleep), for a few hours after you stop feeling high – especially if you take a lot.”
A new piece of information has come forth that the professor may also have made another drug known as 5F-QUPIC around the period of January and February 2018. In fact,5F-QUPIC is a designer drug that acts as a cannabinoid enhancer making the effects of marijuana exponentially multiplied.
