Capacity Constraints

by Jadrian

Walter finds a distributor to sell his meth too, but it requires that the two of them produce two pounds per week when they were previously making only one pound. Walter doesn't see the issue because it wouldn't take that much more time, but he's excited for the significant increase in income from this deal. What Walter doesn't realize is that there's capacity constraints when it comes to the inputs. Jesse is responsible for acquiring pseudoephedrine, which is the necessary ingredient to produce meth. Because of various US laws aimed at preventing pseudoephedrine to be used in meth, customers at drugstores can only purchased a fixed quantity at a time. Jesse drives hundreds of miles to collect pseudoephedrine from "smurfs," but that can only produce 1/2 pound of meth each week. He doesn't realistically see how the two of them can find enough pseudoephedrine to produce the two pounds of meth per week their new distributor is requesting. Luckily, Walter is a VERY good chemist!
