** 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.

* A rare case of the drug being swapped for something ''worse'' occurs in ''Series/TheWestWing''. Jean-Paul slips a sedative into Zoe's drink during her graduation party, thinking that it was Ecstasy. His dealer was paid off by terrorists who then kidnapped her.
* ''Series/BarneyMiller'' had a man arrested for marijuana possession go free because it turned out to be fake... after the man talked to another suspect (who claimed to be Jesus reincarnated) to do one of those miracles, "like when you made all those sandwiches." In this case it was more a reversal of water-to-wine, and the man, who just ''happens'' to be named Paul, rushes out to find "Jesus" again when he's freed.
