* The first episode of ''Series/ThePath'' shows ceremonial use of ayahuasca by Meyerist believers, led by a Peruvian shaman. Marijuana is used as a meditation aid or just to relax. These drugs are considered so beneficial that one of our first hints that Cal Roberts should ''not'' be Meyerism's new leader is that he wants to stop their use, just to make Meyerism look better to outsiders and recruit more followers.

* Music/NeilYoung is (or was) a well-known stoner. His song "Flying on the Ground is Wrong" is about pot. For years he smoked joints as if they were regular cigarettes. He quit, or cut way back, in 2011 after doctors detected pre-dementia changes in his brain.[[note]]He also stopped drinking after his daughter Amber decided she was an alcoholic and stopped drinking.[[/note]] He says "The straighter I am, the more alert I am, the less I know myself and the harder it is to recognise myself," so he looks everywhere for grounding. He still put out an album called ''Psychedelic Pill'' though.

In one of his acoustic concert monologues he gives the [[http://thrasherswheat.org/rns/honeyslides.htm recipe for honeyslides]], which he used to make his voice deeper for songs like "Motion Pictures".

And of course he spent years working with Music/DavidCrosby, well known in the Los Angeles area for having (and selling) extremely powerful grass.

* FIDLAR, full stop. The lyrical basis of their entire discography is partying, taking drugs, drinking, partying, smoking weed, skating, partying, and generally not giving a fuck about anything. It's presented in a very upbeat, carefree manner in their various demos, EP's, and on their self-titled debut. [[spoiler: Though partially subverted on their second album Too, which chronicles frontman Zac Carper's journey to sobriety following the release of their first album.]] For example, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tnJXGlAUKqE the music video]] for a song from their EP 'Shit We Recorded In Our Bedroom' is composed entirely of edited-together anti-drug PSA's, presented humorously in contrast to the song's lyrical content.

* Most every commercial or print advertisement for beer and alcohol is this. A commercial can't tell you how the beer tastes, but it can show you some cool-looking people holding beer at a party.

Maybe you take a drug and you feel really awesome. Maybe drugs lighten your bad mood. Maybe they make life more exciting. Maybe spiking the punch makes the WildTeenParty a lot more fun. Drugs are good! (OK, probably not.)

* Subverted in ''Film/TheWolfOfWallStreet''. Jordan Belfort ''claims'' that drugs are totally awesome, and takes multiple pills of different types a day. It's clear however that he's a just a common addict, and it even aids his own undoing when he's literally too drugged out to do any effective damage control once the authorities start investigating his illegal operations.
