The V-eights and other grow-op gangs have become very active in Destructon. Many of the average working class wouldn't even know what fruit and veg tastes like if not for their efforts. And they do it with great risk. Penalties are extreme even for possession of hydro-kits, in some cases it can be a life term of Civil Labour Camp. Corporate run police agencies like Epipharm's gendarmerie H.I.U.* use high tech equipment to detect off gassing from fertilizers used in hydro gardens. The very real threat is the increase and popularity of IVbars and mainline juicing!
