Talking to the doctor in Megaton can get him to reveal Leo's crazy chem addiction, namely to jet. After this you can talk to him and talk him into quitting (good Karma). He will give you a key. Go to the Water processing plant, and there is a locked desk full of jet and money (along with some other chems).

Paulie Cantelli (Rivet City)Edit

Main article: Paulie Cantelli

Talk to Vera Weatherly and ask her about some gossip. She can tell you some interesting stuff. Mister Lopez is considering suicide, for example. She can also tell you that Paulie Cantelli is addicted to jet. Asking around confirms this. His room is filled with Jet, Psycho and other chems. It is not free to take and you will lose Karma for doing so. However, you can avoid getting caught by simply closing the door behind you. While speaking to him, you have the option of offering him psycho. If you give him enough psycho you will soon find him dead (see Overdose (quest)).
