Revision as of 18:16, 8 October 2013

Drugs are an important aspect in the GTA series. Drugs take place in every single Grand Theft Auto game, they are sold, bought (for others), and used by characters around the protagonist on many occasions.

Adrenaline in the GTA III era games were sometimes mentioned as drugs by GTA fans. There was also a deleted feature where in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Carl Johnson would be able to smoke weed which would make the camera wobble around making hard to control CJ.

In Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars the protagonist Huang Lee can control stocks of drugs and buy them and sell them to other drug dealers which is a good way to make money. There are six types of drugs the player can deal: cocaine, heroin, downers, acid, marijuana, and ecstasy. On three occasions, Huang has to get drugs as 'buy ins' before initiating a mission.

In Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories you could make business empires for drug manufacturing and distribution.

In Grand Theft Auto: Vice City while driving the Cherry Popper Ice Cream Factory truck, Tommy Vercetti distributes drugs.

Protagonists

It should also be noted that all of Grand Theft Auto's protagonists excluding Trevor Phillips, are against using drugs, though they frequently deal with them on a business level. Protagonists are never seen doing drugs until Grand Theft Auto V, and when offered, deny it.

  • One of the main premises of GTA San Andreas is getting crack, crack heads, and crack dealers out of Los Santos to make it a better place.
  • Tommy Vercetti has no problem dealing with drugs but is never seen using anything, nor is there any mention of past use.
  • Victor Vance despises drugs and is extremely uncomfortable even dealing with them.
  • Toni Cipriani has no problem dealing drugs, but is never seen using anything, nor is there any mention of past use.
