* ''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.

* ''{{Transmetropolitan}}'', which leans heavily on the science fiction of this era for inspiration and setting, runs on this trope. It seems like everyone does drugs all the time. It helps that they can fix any potential health effect. They're still illegal; it's just that almost nobody cares. They're still not good for you either, if certain descriptions of Spider's really bad days are to be taken at face value.

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.

* ''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. 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.
