A SCIENCE professor in Japan has been likened to the real life Walter White after allegedly teaching his students how to make ecstasy.
Tatsunori Iwamura, 61, could face a lengthy prison sentence of up to 10 years after reportedly admitting to the crime of showing pupils how to create MDMA.
His story is similar to that of the fictional character on Breaking Bad who cooked crystal meth after being diagnosed with lung cancer, sometimes with the help of a former student Jesse Pinkman.
It is believed that a total of 11 students were given the task of making the drug under Iwamura’s tutelage.
Iwamura, a professor at Matsuyama University in Ehime Prefecture, failed to have the necessary license to deal with illegal drugs for academic purposes.
The incident happened between 2011 and 2013 and then again between 2016 and 2017.
It is understood that the professor then kept the drugs in his possession.

The MDMA has not yet been found but traces have been tested in his laboratory inside the university.
Tatsuya Mizogami, the university’s president, said: “We sincerely apologise for causing serious concern to students and their parents.”
Drug Enforcement Agency was alerted to the sting following an anonymous tip off and the university said they will punish the teacher and students once the investigation was over.
