The Candy Lady in Albuquerque, N.M., rose to fame several years ago when owner Debbie Ball created fake meth candy that she sold in dime bags for a dollar to profit off the popularity of the TV show "Breaking Bad." Now, the 30-year-old business is facing eviction and Bell has turned to crowdfunding site Indiegogo to help save it. “We put a goal of $500,000 on there. The money will go towards helping me move and retrofitting a new building and purchasing a new building,” Ball says and admits that she has faced some backlash from consumers although positive comments outweigh the bad.
