This is somewhere between a {{Discredited|Trope}} and a ForgottenTrope these days, what with DrugsAreBad having been {{enforced|Trope}} in recent years. Could come back as marijuana legalization gets more discussion, or remain the occasional AuthorAppeal topic; the most common being, "If drugs were legal, they'd be too cheap to commit crimes over."

This is somewhere between a {{Discredited|Trope}} RealLife has wavered on this. On one hand, the '80s and '90s marked the height of the War on Drugs, which led to this trope being {{discredited|Trope}} and {{forgotten|Trope}} for a ForgottenTrope these days, what with long time. During this time, DrugsAreBad having been {{enforced|Trope}} became the official line of the government, the MoralGuardians, and any non-underground writers who didn't want to face protest from both. Backlash against the War on Drugs in recent years. Could come back as the '10s, which resulted in marijuana legalization gets more becoming a subject of serious, mainstream political discussion, or could see it make a comeback, though this has also gone hand-in-hand with a growing push against tobacco use (see above re: the ironic use of this trope). It will always remain the occasional AuthorAppeal topic; topic, of course, the most common argument being, "If "if drugs were legal, they'd be too cheap to commit crimes over."

* ''Literature/TheWarAgainstTheChtorr'' series by David Gerrold, who goes to some trouble to portray a society that's changed both technology-wise and socially. Legal marijuana farms and over-the-counter recreational drugs are mentioned.

Legal marijuana farms and over-the-counter recreational drugs are mentioned. Notably, entire industries have sprung up around drug use, to the point where medicine cabinets contain drugs which rapidly neutralize the effects of ''other'' drugs right between the painkillers and the antibiotic ointment.

-->'''[[MessageBoard MesaStim]]''': ''Yeah, sure. You got five bucks In your pocket from a trick or mugging some wretch poorer than you are in the slums and you just about got enough for a quick crack fix. You don't even think about chips--how do you play 'em? Rent the chipreader from the library? Coke may not be the drug of choice for the overaffluent, neurologically compromised American middle classes anymore, but down on the streets it's the some killer it always was. And Aztechnology makes money out of it, whatever they say in public.''

* ''Main/{{Futurama}}'' swings back and forth on the issue of drug legality in its future setting, depending on [[RuleOfFunny which is funnier.]] Bender smokes and drinks constantly. The alcohol is [[Main/JustifiedTrope justified]] in that robots use it as fuel, and Bender will act "drunk" if he hasn't had a drink in a while. As for the cigars, "[[SmokingIsCool they make me look cool]]." The existence of other drugs is suggested. In "My Three Suns", for example, a junkie tries to buy crack from a vending machine that sells "Refreshing Crack" (but the bottle catches on the spring), and in "Bender Should Not Be Allowed on Television", Farnsworth's and Hermes' kids are caught with one of Hermes' "cigars".\\
