* Happens in ''BeavisAndButthead''. Whenever the eponymous Beavis consumes too much sugar -- which doesn't actually seem to be that much -- he slips into his hyperactive alter-ego Cornholio. Part of the transformation involves pulling the back collar of his shirt over his head, holding both hands up, and commencing a quest to find "TP for my bung-hole!".

* A variant from ''Series/PerfectStrangers'': suffering from a terrible cold on the eve of a big date, with all other options exhausted, cousin Larry agrees to take "the Mypos Cure." Balki mixes up a batch of the [[GargleBlaster awful potion]] for Larry, who forces himself to gulp it down when Balki leaves the room... and returns with a tiny spoon, the intended dosage for a single person. Larry just has time to declare to Balki "I can see ''through'' you" before he [[NonSequiturThud passes out]]. He awakens several days later, his date long missed - but hey, his cold is gone!

* In a rather [[http://articles.cnn.com/2007-11-08/us/toy.recall_1_aqua-dots-julie-vallese-spin-master?_s=PM:US strange case]], several young children ended up going to the hospital after swallowing small toys called Aqua-Dots. The children became ill and slipped into comas. Fortunately, all survived. What happened was that the toys contained a chemical that, once metabolized, turned into GHB, one of several compounds characterized as "Date Rape" drugs. After this, they were swiftly recalled.

** An interesting unintended consequence of Project [=MKUltra=] was in fact the aforementioned Merry Pranksters: Creator/KenKesey, the central figure of the Pranksters, was originally a clean-cut jock, and volunteered for one of [=MKUltra=]'s less ethically questionable experiments (i.e. the subjects gave something like informed consent, although the "informed" bit leaves something to be desired), and was introduced to LSD (and other psychedelics) that way. And from there, Kesey got really into the whole acid thing, and founded the Pranksters. And so, indirectly, the CIA was responsible in part for the psychedelic culture of the late '60s.
* It's very easy--even for those who regularly consume marijuana--to get higher than you intended on pot brownies, in part because ingesting marijuana takes much longer to produce an effect than smoking it. This leads to experienced smokers eating four or five brownies because they aren't high yet, only to realize half an hour later that they should have stopped at one.

* Spike, in his first appearance in ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'', recounts an incident where he "fed off a flower person" at Woodstock. ("...and I spent the next four hours watching my hand move.") Vampires in the Buffyverse are especially susceptible to unwittingly taking drugs by drinking the blood of users, and one episode depicts a designer drug meant to be shared by a human and a vampire.
