* ''{{WesternAnimation/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".\\
\\
Bizarrely, cocaine seems to be legal, as it is openly sold in vending machines. However, marijuana seems to be still illegal, as Hermes makes frequent references to "flushing things", and "that's not a cigar...and it's not mine"; in the election episode, there's also a lobby for the legalization of hemp. The episode "Three Hundred Big Boys" has the same junkie say "No more cheap crack-houses for me!", and head for a huge building with a large sign reading "CRACK MANSION".\\
\\
One episode shows that there exists an AlternateUniverse called "Universe 420." It is only glimpsed for a few seconds, but from the glimpsed imagery (stoners dressed like it's TheSeventies), the universe's [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin name]], and the context of the rest of the episode, we can infer that this universe is a PlanetOfHats where everyone is TheStoner; and that it is just as real as the "Universe A" where the primary characters live, and has a [[InSpiteOfANail similar history to the primary universe]], containing stoner equivalents of Farnsworth, Amy, and presumably all of the characters from Universe A.\\

* Common throughout the ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer40000}}'' setting. The game itself occasionally has units that can take drugs to gain some effects, although obviously general usage and legality aren't entirely relevant in a battle situation. The literature contains a huge variety of drugs of all stages of legality though.

* ''VideoGame/Rimworld'' has a variety of drugs that you can manufacture. Most of them are clearly BlandNameProduct versions of real-world narcotics, with the exception of [[http://rimworldwiki.com/wiki/Go-juice "Go-Juice"]], a futuristic combat drug that increases pain tolerance, boosts awareness and increases mobility. The drawback is that it's ''extremely'' addictive, with ugly withdrawal symptoms, and overuse will eventually cause brain damage.

* TabletopGame/{{Mortasheen}} - due to the titular city not really having any laws. There's even a monster, [[http://www.bogleech.com/mortasheen/jitter.htm Jitter]], specifically made for dispensing narcotics.
