POLICE x4:

Stealth x5

I would like you guys to look into the new drug entering the city and see if you can get a look into how it is coming into the city.

Influence Response:

Please note that your influence is still at an effective level of 4.

The police have already been conducting their own investigation of eskola up until this point. The original shipment of eskola arrived in the harbor sometime last March and was distributed by the Hip Sing Tong to a number of other criminal organizations for money and firearms. A police raid was conducted on a second shipment, and there were several arrests made on the basis that the shipment also contained several other illegal drugs. The Hip Sing as a whole have since backed off from any further drug trafficking ventures (on the surface at least), although contacts are monitoring the situation on the inside, and indicate that there may be some Hip Sing associates that are still involved.

However, the original shipment was quite large in and of itself; therefore there is a significant amount of the original drug that is still floating around. Secondly, transportation has shifted towards ground-based transport from, presumably, New Jersey. The most likely form of transportation is by car, and the police are currently investigating license plates and transportation agencies (both legal and illegal). The police are unable to confirm whether or not the drug is being produced in New Jersey, but this is their leading suspicion.

The police have a number of informants placed in all of the local organized crime syndicates, and have been gathering information for the past several months. However, it seems that each organization has been undergoing some restructuring due to the recent raid shaking things up, and so their contacts have been forced to lay low. Information gathering has been quite difficult in the past few weeks as a result.

The last problem remains that the police cannot necessarily conduct raids on eskola without some sort of federal legal intervention. Since not enough information is available on eskola right now, the law won't necessarily be able to prosecute. Until it does, the police are keeping an ear to the ground.

I would like a detailed report on what the effects that the new drug on the street has on people and I would also like a very small sample to study. One or two doses should do.

Influence Response:

You acquire a small dose of eskola.

Though there are some key notable differences in its chemical composition and structure, the drug you're looking at has a lot of shared similarities with the amphetamine family, and thus has a number of similar effects - increased energy levels, awareness and concentration. In significant doses, it can produce feelings of euphoria, increased sociability, and increased libido... and it does this longer and better than other amphetamines.

In the case of high dosages, some have reported hallucinations, and in extreme cases, paranoia. It is made very clear to you that an overdose is quite dangerous - almost all of the overdose cases that have been reported have resulted in some sort of death by convulsions, stroke, heart attack, and in one case excessive bleeding. Simultaneously, however, there have been very few cases of overdose-related injury; most of the deaths have been sensationalized by the media to a certain degree.

Tolerance among individuals varies on frequency of use. There have been some reports that it is easy to build up a high tolerance (which results in individuals taking excessive amounts of eskola and overdosing), but these have been isolated cases.

I would like a comparison report of how addictive eskola is compared to other common illegal drugs. I know that eskola is going to be one of the more addictive ones from what I have heard. (Haldor is trying to get a report out of his contacts that would support eskola being on the addictiveness of things like cocaine and heroin.)

Influence Response:

Your contacts tell you that addiction is dependent on the person and something that can't be determined in two weeks - they'll need at least a month to conduct a test - and that what they can measure is the time for a tolerance to build up. Of course, they can begin right away. It seems that the majority of reported deaths, according to official documents, have been the result of a massive overdose. While it seems like this would suggest that one can build up quite a tolerance, these reports also state that these people were already quite unstable - some of them were taking several drugs simultaneously along with eskola, while others were mentally ill, or had suffered some sort of recent loss.
