** That said, AlanMoore plays this straight in several of his works, especially his ''ComicBook/SwampThing'' run. The hallucinogenic tubers that grow out of the titular character's back help several characters achieve HigherUnderstandingThroughDrugs, though it's suggested that the tubers act as more of a "cosmic litmus paper" that make life a living hell for any ''bad'' people who eat them.

* The main characters in ''Literature/EdenGreen'' smoke marijuana to calm themselves in several situations, especially after infection with an alien needle symbiote. The title character also uses heroin (or rather, has it administered to her) to deal with the agony. By contrast, the main character in sequel ''Literature/NewNight'' is a former police officer who personally doesn't approve of drugs, but tolerates his best friend's stoner tendencies. (The author is [[https://twitter.com/FekketCantenel/status/791994782864187393 pro-marijuana]] and sometimes [[https://twitter.com/FekketCantenel/status/825754515689320448 uses psychedelics]].)

* Music/JeffersonAirplane's "White Rabbit" about a young girl who chases a rabbit one day and gets experimental with things that make her larger and smaller, whilst encountering caterpillars smoking hookahs and self-willed chess pieces and a talking dormouse. Hmmm. (It's a WholePlotReference to ''Literature/AliceInWonderland'', whose craziness is often attributed to Lewis Caroll's experiments with LSD).

* In ''VideoGame/TheConsumingShadow'', srynges of an unidentified "recreational narcotic" are your Bulwark Against the Terror; the one non-random event thing that can restore your SanityMeter. It's a good idea to save a dose for your confrontation with whatever EldritchAbomination is trying to eat the world this playthrough.
