'''Drugs''' are an important aspect in the GTA series. Drugs are featured in every single Grand Theft Auto game, and 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.
+
[[Adrenaline]] makes an appearance in GTA III, Vice City and Liberty City Stories, in the form of collectible pills that the player can take that boosts the player's health and slows down time. There was also a removed feature where in [[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]], [[Carl Johnson]] would be able to smoke [[weed]] which would make the camera wobble around making CJ hard to control. This ability was scrapped, but the effects of being high were recreated during the mission [[Are You Going to San Fierro?]].
   
In [[Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars]] the protagonist [[Huang Lee]] can control stocks of drugs and [[Drug Dealing|buy 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: [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cocaine cocaine], [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heroin heroin], [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Depressant downers], [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lysergic_acid_diethylamide acid], [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marihuana marijuana], and [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mdma ecstasy]. On three occasions, Huang has to get drugs as 'buy ins' before initiating a mission.

==Protagonists==
+
In [[Grand Theft Auto V]], [[Michael De Santa]] was anesthetized (using a veterinary anesthetic agent such as Morphine, Ketamine, Butorphanol or Midazolam) by his son [[Jimmy De Santa]] causing him to feel delusional and seeing himself being ganged by [[Monkeys|monkeys]], [[UFO|abducted]] by [[Aliens|aliens]] and flying through the [[Los Santos (HD Universe)|city]]. The exact drug that was used is never specified.
   
It should also be noted that all of [[Grand Theft Auto]]'s [[protagonist]]s are against using drugs, though they frequently deal with them on a business level.
+
In [[Grand Theft Auto Online]], the [[GTA Online Protagonist]] is able to help their allies build a drug dealing business, most notably [[Trevor Philips Enterprises]]. The player is able to do drugs on his own, which are [[Weed|weed]] and [[Bull Shark Testosterone|bull shark testosterone]].
Protagonists are never seen doing drugs, 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.
+
==Protagonists==
+
It should also be noted that most of [[Grand Theft Auto]]'s [[protagonist]]s are against using drugs, though they frequently deal with them on a business level. [[Claude Speed]] is the first protagonist known to do drugs, though he is only seen doing so briefly in [[GTA 2: The Movie]]. All protagonists from the [[3D Universe]] and the first four protagonists from the [[HD Universe]] are never seen doing drugs, and when offered, they always refuse. The last four protagonists from the HD Universe can only use drugs under the player's control.
* [[Carl Johnson]] declines an offer for a bong hit from [[Frank Tenpenny]] in [[Body Harvest]]. Also when Ryder tries to get Carl to smoke marijuana Carl pushes him away and says "I don't fuck with that shit man."
 
 
* [[Victor Vance]] despises drugs, and is extremely uncomfortable even dealing with them. At the end of the game, when Lance reveals that he has obtained twenty kilograms of cocaine to sell, Victor declines, stating "No! No, No, I am not interested, got it?", to which Lance replies "Okay, man. Whatever you say.".
 
* [[Niko Bellic]] denies a toke of marijuana from [[Little Jacob]] on many occasions. He also immediately denies the coke Vlad offers him in [[Clean Getaway]].
 
 
* [[Luis Lopez|Luis Fernando Lopez]] has shown that he isn't interested in drug dealing, as he tries numerous times to convince Armando and Henrique to get real jobs instead of selling drugs (as seen in [[Corner Kids]]), but still helps them steal drugs in the [[Drug Wars]] side-missions for money. Outside of the drug dealing missions, Luis also declines the coke [[Yusuf Amir]] offers him in the mission [[Sexy Time]]. Also when Ray Bulgarin asks Luis where do the drugs come in from the club in Boulavard Baby Luis immediately says "I don't know about that shit man, I just make sure people don't get killed".
 
   
* [[Huang Lee]] is warned by his uncle [[Wu Lee]] not to get involved in drug dealing during [[Tricks of the Triad]], out of fear that he would become an addict, but Huang assures his uncle that he won't start using drugs himself. When the player reads some of the mission replay summaries, Huang states in them that he is dealing drugs solely for profit, since Liberty City is full of "crackheads, deadbeats, and junkies".
+
*[[Carl Johnson]] despises drugs, as one of the main premises of GTA San Andreas is getting crack, crackheads, and crack dealers out of [[Los Santos (3D Universe)|Los Santos]] to make it a better place. [[Lance Wilson|Ryder]] tries a few times to get Carl to smoke a marijuana joint laced with PCP which Carl always declines, saying "'''I don't fuck with that shit, man."''' or "'''No, man. I'm cool on that."''' He also declines an offer for a bong hit from [[Frank Tenpenny|Tenpenny]] in [[Body Harvest]]. This is also reinforced by the fact that there are no Adrenaline Pill pickups in the game as they would technically be considered drugs. Originally, Carl was to be able to smoke marijuana under the player's control, but this feature was cut before the game's release and is not necessarily canon to the character. Carl also drinks alcohol.
  +
*[[Victor Vance]] despises drugs, and is extremely uncomfortable selling drugs or even being around them. At the end of the game, when [[Lance Vance|Lance]] reveals that he has obtained twenty kilograms of cocaine to sell, Victor immediately refuses to participate, saying "'''No, no, no! I am not interested, got it?"''' to which Lance replies "'''Okay, man. Whatever you say."''' Despite claiming to be against selling drugs, Victor can establish business fronts for the sole purposes of [[Smuggling|smuggling drugs]], and [[Drugs (business)|manufacturing, and distributing them]] (under the player's control) and still participates in a [[In The Beginning...|drug deal]] in 1986.
  +
*[[Niko Bellic]] is against drugs on a personal level and declines an offer to smoke a marijuana joint from [[Little Jacob]] on many occasions. He also immediately refuses the cocaine Vlad offers him in [[Clean Getaway]]. He is, however, perfectly comfortable selling drugs and being around drugs and the people who use and/or sell them. Niko also drinks alcohol.
  +
*[[Johnny Klebitz]] was mostly against drugs during the events of [[Grand Theft Auto IV]], [[The Lost and Damned]], and [[The Ballad of Gay Tony]], blaming most of the [[Lost MC]]'s problems on [[Billy Grey|Billy]]'s heroin addiction, and likewise blaming his breakup with [[Ashley Butler|Ashley]] on her crystal meth addiction; He declines an offer for a bong hit from Billy in [[It's War]], though his dialogue with [[Strip Club|strippers]] during private dances reveals Johnny is a marijuana smoker. However, after the events of The Lost and Damned and before the events of [[Grand Theft Auto V]], Johnny ends up smoking meth and becoming addicted just like Ashley and most of the rest of the Lost. It is shown a few times that Johnny has no problem with selling drugs, [[Blow Your Cover|once]] saying "'''Nothin' like sellin' some dope to let ya know you're alive."''' Johnny also drinks alcohol.
  +
*[[Luis Lopez|Luis Fernando Lopez]] is against drugs, as he tries numerous times to convince [[Armando Torres|Armando]] and [[Henrique Bardas|Henrique]] to get real jobs instead of selling drugs (as seen in [[Corner Kids]]), but still helps them steal drugs in the [[Drug Wars]] side-missions for money (under the player's control). Luis blames their business falling apart on [[Tony Prince|Tony]]'s addiction to cocaine and painkillers. Luis also declines the cocaine [[Yusuf Amir]] offers him in the mission [[Sexy Time]]. Also when [[Ray Bulgarin]] asks Luis where the drugs in [[Maisonette 9|the club]] come in from in [[Boulevard Baby]] Luis immediately says "'''I don't know about that shit, man. I just make sure people don't get killed."''' Luis also drinks alcohol.
  +
*[[Huang Lee]] is warned by his uncle [[Wu Lee]] not to get involved in drug dealing during [[Tricks of the Triad]], out of fear that he would become an addict, but Huang assures his uncle that he won't start using drugs himself. When the player reads some of the mission replay summaries, Huang states in them that he is dealing drugs solely for profit, since Liberty City is full of "'''crackheads, deadbeats, and junkies."'''
  +
*[[Michael De Santa]] claims to be against marijuana himself, as he gets quite annoyed at the fact that his [[Jimmy De Santa|son]] does frequently smoke it. He also claims that if it is the "'''Standard for goodness'''" in America today, than, in his words, "'''No wonder this country is screwed.'''" Although he claims to have these negative views on marijuana, he can however smoke it from a bong in his son's room, under the player's control. While hanging out, after his family returns to him, it is revealed Michael is not against selling drugs; He is disappointed to learn Jimmy stopped selling marijuana, saying that he only wanted Jimmy to stop smoking it and that Jimmy needed some form of income to support himself. Michael also smokes cigarettes and cigars, and drinks alcohol.
  +
*[[Franklin Clinton]] is a frequent marijuana smoker himself and is the second known Protagonist in the entire series to smoke it at his own will. Franklin seems to be mostly against selling drugs, as he briefly chastises [[Lamar Davis|Lamar]] for "slinging dope" in [[Franklin and Lamar]]; Despite this, he can purchase a [[Smoke On The Water|marijuana dispensary]] which legally sells marijuana. Franklin also smokes cigarettes, and drinks alcohol.
  +
*[[Trevor Philips]] is a frequent methamphetamine user, and is the first Protagonist in the entire series to smoke it at his own will. His [[Trevor Philips Enterprises|business]] also distributes in meth and marijuana, among other drugs. Trevor also smokes cigarettes and cigars, drinks alcohol, and often huffs gas.
  +
*The [[GTA Online Protagonist]] is able to smoke a bong in his/her apartment, and can also take [[Bull Shark Testosterone]] from [[Brucie Kibbutz]]. In certain [[Missions in GTA Online|missions]], the GTA Online protagonist is able to assist [[Gerald (GTA Online)|Gerald]] or [[Trevor Philips|Trevor]] in building their drug empires. The Protagonist can also smoke cigarettes, and drink alcohol.

*In GTA IV, [[Little Jacob]], a friend of protagonist [[Niko Bellic]], has a habit of toking up at the wrong times. One such time includes when the two of them are [[Paper Trail|flying in a helicopter chasing]] a [[Eduard Borodin|suspected terrorist.]] In the enclosed space of the helicopter, Niko is slightly affected by the smoke. The player doesn't see the effects, but Niko's speech is slightly slurred. Afterwards, Niko allows him to continue smoking as the smoke calms his nerves.

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

Adrenaline makes an appearance in GTA III, Vice City and Liberty City Stories, in the form of collectible pills that the player can take that boosts the player's health and slows down time. There was also a removed feature where in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Carl Johnson would be able to smoke weed which would make the camera wobble around making CJ hard to control. This ability was scrapped, but the effects of being high were recreated during the mission Are You Going to San Fierro?.

In Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars the protagonist Huang Lee can control stocks of drugs and buy 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.

You can also sell drugs in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City while driving the Cherry Popper Ice Cream Factory truck.

In Grand Theft Auto V, Michael De Santa was anesthetized (using a veterinary anesthetic agent such as Morphine, Ketamine, Butorphanol or Midazolam) by his son Jimmy De Santa causing him to feel delusional and seeing himself being ganged by monkeys, abducted by aliens and flying through the city. The exact drug that was used is never specified.

In Grand Theft Auto Online, the GTA Online Protagonist is able to help their allies build a drug dealing business, most notably Trevor Philips Enterprises. The player is able to do drugs on his own, which are weed and bull shark testosterone.

ProtagonistsEdit

It should also be noted that most of Grand Theft Auto's protagonists are against using drugs, though they frequently deal with them on a business level. Claude Speed is the first protagonist known to do drugs, though he is only seen doing so briefly in GTA 2: The Movie. All protagonists from the 3D Universe and the first four protagonists from the HD Universe are never seen doing drugs, and when offered, they always refuse. The last four protagonists from the HD Universe can only use drugs under the player's control.

  • Carl Johnson despises drugs, as one of the main premises of GTA San Andreas is getting crack, crackheads, and crack dealers out of Los Santos to make it a better place. Ryder tries a few times to get Carl to smoke a marijuana joint laced with PCP which Carl always declines, saying "I don't fuck with that shit, man." or "No, man. I'm cool on that." He also declines an offer for a bong hit from Tenpenny in Body Harvest. This is also reinforced by the fact that there are no Adrenaline Pill pickups in the game as they would technically be considered drugs. Originally, Carl was to be able to smoke marijuana under the player's control, but this feature was cut before the game's release and is not necessarily canon to the character. Carl also drinks alcohol.
  • Victor Vance despises drugs, and is extremely uncomfortable selling drugs or even being around them. At the end of the game, when Lance reveals that he has obtained twenty kilograms of cocaine to sell, Victor immediately refuses to participate, saying "No, no, no! I am not interested, got it?" to which Lance replies "Okay, man. Whatever you say." Despite claiming to be against selling drugs, Victor can establish business fronts for the sole purposes of smuggling drugs, and manufacturing, and distributing them (under the player's control) and still participates in a drug deal in 1986.
  • Niko Bellic is against drugs on a personal level and declines an offer to smoke a marijuana joint from Little Jacob on many occasions. He also immediately refuses the cocaine Vlad offers him in Clean Getaway. He is, however, perfectly comfortable selling drugs and being around drugs and the people who use and/or sell them. Niko also drinks alcohol.
  • Johnny Klebitz was mostly against drugs during the events of Grand Theft Auto IV, The Lost and Damned, and The Ballad of Gay Tony, blaming most of the Lost MC's problems on Billy's heroin addiction, and likewise blaming his breakup with Ashley on her crystal meth addiction; He declines an offer for a bong hit from Billy in It's War, though his dialogue with strippers during private dances reveals Johnny is a marijuana smoker. However, after the events of The Lost and Damned and before the events of Grand Theft Auto V, Johnny ends up smoking meth and becoming addicted just like Ashley and most of the rest of the Lost. It is shown a few times that Johnny has no problem with selling drugs, once saying "Nothin' like sellin' some dope to let ya know you're alive." Johnny also drinks alcohol.
  • Luis Fernando Lopez is against drugs, as he tries numerous times to convince Armando and Henrique to get real jobs instead of selling drugs (as seen in Corner Kids), but still helps them steal drugs in the Drug Wars side-missions for money (under the player's control). Luis blames their business falling apart on Tony's addiction to cocaine and painkillers. Luis also declines the cocaine Yusuf Amir offers him in the mission Sexy Time. Also when Ray Bulgarin asks Luis where the drugs in the club come in from in Boulevard Baby Luis immediately says "I don't know about that shit, man. I just make sure people don't get killed." Luis also drinks alcohol.
  • Huang Lee is warned by his uncle Wu Lee not to get involved in drug dealing during Tricks of the Triad, out of fear that he would become an addict, but Huang assures his uncle that he won't start using drugs himself. When the player reads some of the mission replay summaries, Huang states in them that he is dealing drugs solely for profit, since Liberty City is full of "crackheads, deadbeats, and junkies."
  • Michael De Santa claims to be against marijuana himself, as he gets quite annoyed at the fact that his son does frequently smoke it. He also claims that if it is the "Standard for goodness" in America today, than, in his words, "No wonder this country is screwed." Although he claims to have these negative views on marijuana, he can however smoke it from a bong in his son's room, under the player's control. While hanging out, after his family returns to him, it is revealed Michael is not against selling drugs; He is disappointed to learn Jimmy stopped selling marijuana, saying that he only wanted Jimmy to stop smoking it and that Jimmy needed some form of income to support himself. Michael also smokes cigarettes and cigars, and drinks alcohol.
  • Franklin Clinton is a frequent marijuana smoker himself and is the second known Protagonist in the entire series to smoke it at his own will. Franklin seems to be mostly against selling drugs, as he briefly chastises Lamar for "slinging dope" in Franklin and Lamar; Despite this, he can purchase a marijuana dispensary which legally sells marijuana. Franklin also smokes cigarettes, and drinks alcohol.
  • Trevor Philips is a frequent methamphetamine user, and is the first Protagonist in the entire series to smoke it at his own will. His business also distributes in meth and marijuana, among other drugs. Trevor also smokes cigarettes and cigars, drinks alcohol, and often huffs gas.
  • The GTA Online Protagonist is able to smoke a bong in his/her apartment, and can also take Bull Shark Testosterone from Brucie Kibbutz. In certain missions, the GTA Online protagonist is able to assist Gerald or Trevor in building their drug empires. The Protagonist can also smoke cigarettes, and drink alcohol.
