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 complex than cocaine but also more toxic. One has to be careful because failure to adhere properly can result in exposure to 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.
