* One episode of ''Series/MyFamily'' has the herbs-for-weed version. When Michael brings a joint home (which he didn't actually want, to be fair), Ben and Susan smoke half of it, get high, then prepare a fake using kitchen herbs [[{{Hypocrite)) so they can give him the]] DrugsAreBad speech. When Michael, ActingUnnaturally, gives it back to the girl who gave it to him, she rips it up and tells him that the guy she got it off had...been sold kitchen herbs instead of weed, making it recursive. [[ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve Cut to Ben and Susan, lying somewhat stoned, having smoked the other half]], wondering if that's oregano Susan can smell.

* In one episode of ''Series/CSIMiami,'' Delko's sister/Caine's LoveInterest Marisol is arrested buying weed (which she's using to self-medicate after chemo treatments). The quantity she bought pushes it up to a felony, when it just so happens three of the five bags the lab processed contain benign herbs. Of course the authorities figure Delko or Caine swapped out those bags to lessen her sentence, so Caine tracks down the dealer she bought them from and forces him to admit he'd sold her the fake product himself.

** Moist von Lipwig enjoys playing these (usually with fake jewelry) in ''Discworld/GoingPostal''. He doesn't find it too immoral, because upstanding, honest people generally doesn't fall for his con; the marks who do fall for it are generally people who try to take advantage of his seeming naivety, and just use the fake goods for their own scam in turn.

Added DiffLines:

** Makes a bold appearance at the end of season one when Savino turns himself in and accepts a three-year fraud conviction for trying to sell a few pounds of baking soda to Orlando. Considering that what he was '''really''' doing was participating in a conspiracy to kill Orlando [[spoiler:which nearly killed Kima in a sting gone wrong]], he got off exceptionally light.

* Franklin, Lamar and Trevor almost buy one of these in a mission in ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoV'', when a drug dealer they are meeting with tries to sell them a "brick" of heroin that is about 5% actual horse and 95% drywall. Lamar (dumb and greedy) and Franklin (doesn't want to be part of the deal and just wants to get it over with) nearly fall for it, but Trevor, an experienced would-be drug kingpin, sees right through it and rumbles the dealer.
