There are three main drugs that are commonly manufacture by the criminal element in Oceania: Meth, Cocaine, Marijuana. Many of these manufacturing setups utilize repurposed industrial items available at the various vendors located throughout Victory City. It is important to note that some warehouses may possess some abandoned industrial equipment that one could use to produce drugs thus saving a savvy criminal the cost of acquiring brand new equipment.
Historically it was the Eurasian Mafia and the Eastasian Triad that controlled the drug trade but a skillful independent criminal would be able to create their own startup drug labs with the hopes of remaining undetected by local authorities. Finished drugs are sold to addicts scattered throughout the city's underworld.
The Manufacturing of meth is far more simple than cocaine but also more toxic. One has to be careful because failure to adhere properly can result in toxic fumes, fire, and or other means of injury/death.
Upon successful manufacture of the meth locate the buyer in some dark sketchy alley of the downtown area of the map and sell it to him for a huge profit. It should be noted that there is a cool down period and you cannot sell back to back within a short period of time.

- Place the bag of meth into the transport bin. For ease of transport you may also put them on a pallet.
- Bring it to your local drug distributor who may be scattered throughout the city. He will then give you a drop off location to bring the meth to. These drop off locations are scattered throughout the city and may even be in a tunnel. The selection of each drop off point is randomized. If you fail to make the drop off point in time you must wait a few minutes before being allowed to try again.

Drying & Packaging
- Purchase a drying rack and drag the bucket to the table. Once it touches the cocaine will be poured over the table. If the drying rack is turned on already, the process will begin automatically.
- The drying rack is powered using batteries. The switch for the lights and drying process is located on the front left of the drying rack. You can see how much power the batteries have on the arrow next to the switch.
- Once batteries are installed red and green lights are available to display if the drying rack is on or off. Turn it on while there is cocaine on the table to begin the process.
- You can follow the progress by looking on the right side as an arrow will move as the temperature rises on the table.
- When the process is finished, the packed cocaine will appear on the table.
- The last part is buying a cocaine box (drug holder). Drag and drop your packed cocaine into the box. You can press E on the box to open and close it.
