Above: Nuke from Robocop 2
Inside that device that looks like something you’d stick a check in while at a drive-thru bank is nuke, a red liquid that drug that is administered via an injection directly into the bloodstream. It’s highly addictive and causes effects that I guess are closest to that of cocaine, which makes it so popular on the future streets of Detroit. Nuke effects everyone, from cyborg cops to 12-year-old drug dealers. Most people take nuke through a quick injection into the neck. Hardcore.
Other drugs covered include Substance D, Moloko Plus, and Ephemerol.
