* Half the plot of ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoIII'' revolves around [[TheCartel the Colombian Cartel]] flooding Liberty City with a new drug called SPANK, a perverse cross between cocaine and meth. It seems to be the new 'party drug' for most of Liberty's residents, but extended use can turn it's users into [[spoiler:psychopathic suicide bombers]]. [[EvenEvilHasStandards The Mafia and the Yakuza won't deal with the stuff]], but other gangs, like the Triads and the Yardies, have no such qualms.

* In ''John Dies at the End'', the plot revolves around a mysterious drug called "Soy Sauce," which gives the user enhanced sensory perception, clairvoyance, and the ability to see monsters and dimensional portals.
* In the ''WheelOfTime'' series, male and female magic users (called channelers) find the very act of casting magic from the Source is very addictive. So much so that many channelers only use magic when necessary, since it is easy to "burn out", permanently severing your ability to do magic, if you try to pull in too much magic.

If you need an addictive or psychedelic substance for a storyline, there's always one old standby: Make one up. This meshes perfectly with SpeculativeFiction, but would seem completely out of place in a realistic series. After all, the planet "Yalic 4" might not have the same planets or minerals etc. that a fictional analogue of Earth would. Alternatively, if it's a comedy, you could get away with ICantBelieveItsNotHeroin instead. Otherwise you can resort to the potentially {{narm}}y GRatedDrug.

* The first book in Creator/DianeDuane's ''Space Cops'' series, "Mindblast", is centered around the spread of Hyper 2, an intelligence enhancing (and lethal)) complete with full chemical name and a lengthy description of how the drug worked. Cue heartbreak when the heroes discover that the man who created the drug wasn't some sleazy dealer, [[spoiler:he had been trying to research a cure for his mentally retarded daughter.]]

** It also creates adverse withdrawal symptoms if one gets addicted. In ''TrueBlood'', Jason's went static, and he became more aggressive and desperate. It also gave him a boner from hell when he overdosed on it, and had to have the blood painfully removed from his penis.

In the Kindle Worlds novella "Ten Davids Two Goliaths" set in this world, one character uses Rioters for religious purposes and [[spoilers:experiences the equivalent of an acid flashback at a very bad time]].
