*** Something of a BrokenAesop in this case since the bad effects ''weren't'' caused by the beer; they were caused by a magic potion that happened to be administered via the beer. Possibly this sequence is why the TVTropes anon-edit password used to be "foamy".

* Averted in ''Series/TheDefenders'' episode "Fires of the Mind", first aired in 1965. Creator/DonaldPleasence plays the Leary Expy here, on trial for murder after one of his students suicided. Instead of "drugs are bad", the Arnold Manoff screenplay showed both sides. The older lawyer is so disgusted that he quits the case; the younger lawyer, his son, tries LSD to see what it's like and testifies that he had a positive experience.

* ''Series/SeventhHeaven'': This [[{{Narm}} narmtastic]] show went with every drug in the book from marijuana to alcohol to cigarettes to ''glue'' in order to deliver an {{Aesop}} with the [[{{Anvilicious}} subtlety of a sledgehammer to the face]].

* ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'': There are the Jem'Hadars.



** The episode "Symbiosis" including a why-drugs-are-bad speech by Tasha Yar to Wesley Crusher. She points out that drugs can be an escape from one's crappy life.
*** What makes it even more jarring is that it is entirely irrelevant to the situation.

* ''Series/HomeImprovement'': In one episode, Tim and Jill catch Brad with marijuana and try to convince him that using marijuana is bad, but it is portrayed in a more even-handed way than in many other shows. Jill ends up revealing that she smoked pot in college and once while high bought a stash that was laced with something and she ended up in the emergency room and then was charged with possession and Tim had to bail her out of jail. The end. message was that while marijuana might not be inherently bad it can cause the user to make bad decisions and the potential risk is not worth it. Creator/TimAllen himself rather famously spent a few years in prison for selling drugs, so he'd know.
