** The President of the Terran Federation has denounced the illegal drug Shadow as a threat to all humanity. Turns out it's being harvested on a planet protected by his personal security force. By controlling the drug trade, the Federation dominates both the legal and illegal parts of society.

* A book called ''[[https://www.amazon.com/Blitzed-Drugs-Third-Norman-Ohler/dp/1328663795 Blitzed: Drugs in the Third Reich]]'' was released in German in 2015 and translated into English in 2017, and it details how the government of /NaziGermany used to require their soldiers to take methamphetamines (then called Pervitin). The drugs enabled the Wehrmacht to go [[AddictionPowered days without rest]] and helped make the Blitzkrieg possible. And if that wasn't enough, Pervitin was sold over the counter and large swaths of Germans were {{Functional Addict}}s -- the drug was even advertised the same way antidepressants are today. Some physicians and scientists tried to publicize the negative side effects of so much meth, [[GovernmentConspiracy but that information was suppressed]].

* In ''Literature/TheGiver'', aside from the usual birth control pills, people are given painkillers for every little hurt, to keep them from feeling even that most basic of emotions, pain. The mandatory pills also remove "stirrings," or sexual desire. Jonas is put on the pills soon after he has his first EroticDream about Fiona, a female friend.

** In the pilot, the Federation's food and water supplies are laced with "emotional suppressants." The rebel approaching Blake insists he eat or drink nothing for three days to get them out of his system.
** The [[ReligionOfEvil cult on Cygnus Alpha]] used a fake medicine against a supposed horrific plague (actually a minor environmental poison that cleared itself within days) in place of communion wafers, to keep the cultists in line.
** In Season 4, the Federation is able to reconquer their VestigialEmpire thanks to a drug called Pylene-50 that blocks the production of adrenaline.

The [[MoodDissonance voice continues]] even when the Federation soldiers get bored and start gunning down people for kicks.

* Creator/JonathanLethem's ''Gun, with Occasional Music'', a futuristic FilmNoir-style story, tells us about a world where the population takes a variety of state-supplied drugs like Forgetol, Acceptol and Regretol (collectively called "Make") to get them through the day. Originally, there were many different varieties of drugs that produced pleasurable effects; which individuals could blend as they wanted. Their use was optional, not mandatory. After [[TimeSkip six years in cryogenic sleep]], the protagonist wakes up to a world in which the government mandated the use of a single drug, which dulled the mind and disrupted memory.
