Native Lifeforms

The importance of Gadden is not readily apparent, and is not widely known. The local ecology has produced several strains of green plant which provide the psychochemicals used in the production of combat drug. As would be expected, the plants in the wild merely provide base chemicals which must be further refined. In addition, it is not clear that the drugs themselves are superior to those currently in distribution throughout the Imperium.
