* Referenced in ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' when [[spoiler: Soul-Splice Vaarsuvius starts to behave in an evil manner, even though the soul splices can't actually affect his/her alignment. According to the fiends, "A good way to get a good person to do something horrible is to convince them they're not responsible for their actions."]] It's compared to someone drinking beer they didn't know was non-alcoholic and feeling drunk anyway because they expected to be.

* An episode of ''Series/AbsolutelyFabulous'' has the characters travel to France. Patsy gets bored and does some coke, which loosens her up enough to tolerate Saffron's presence and play table tennis. On the way back home, the drugs are found by airport security, but they determine that they were fake all along. Patsy is horrified, not because she spent a fortune on phony drugs, but because this meant she ''actually enjoyed playing table tennis''.

* In an episode of ''CelebrityDeathmatch'', Nick Diamond gets some hemp clothing from Woody Harrelson; unfortunately, the clothes catch fire, and after inadvertently getting a face full of smoke, Nick spends the rest of the episode stoned out of his gourd. Hemp, of course, is not the same thing as marijuana and does not contain THC, and when Harrelson points this out at the end of the episode, Nick is very embarrassed (he is naked and playing the bongos at this point).
