* The first episode of ''CloneHigh'' had what amounted to the entire student body getting drunk on non-alchoholic beer. Even better is Gandhi, who got drunk (and acted the craziest) even though he knew what it was in the first place, since he helped buy it.
** And let's not even start on the episode about smoking raisins, in which a motivational speaker telling the school ''not'' to do drugs emphasizes how addicted he was by saying, "I would have smoked ''anything''! I probably would have smoked... I dunno, ''raisins'' if I thought it would get me high!" The raisins, believed by everyone to be smokable, become potent mental drugs. It most notably affects Gandhi, who goes on a spiritual quest with a humkeycorn[[note]]half hummingbird, half donkey, half unicorn[[/note]] only to wake up later, completely naked and confused.

** The TropeNamer: All the characters try a dirt-flavored Chinese treat called "Lemon Wacky Hello," which turns out to be laced with opiates (though the ingredients only list something called, "hello.").

* Commander Shepard in ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'' can order drinks at the Dark Star bar on the Citadel. After two drinks, he/she's still raring to go. For the third drink, the bartender gives him/her a glass of uncut Batarian ale, which to his surprise just leaves Shepard sloshed rather than on the floor. Order another drink, and he pulls out the [[GargleBlaster ryncol]], at which point he says that Shepard will be setting off radiation alarms for a week. Shepard downs it and wakes up some time later on the floor of the men's room.

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheIronGiant'', Hogarth drinks some of Dean's espresso, insisting he could handle it. The following exchange takes roughly fifteen seconds:
-->'''Hogarth''': So she moved me up a grade 'cause I wasn't fitting in, so now I'm even more not fitting in. I was getting good grades, you know, like all A's. So my mom says, "You need stimulation," and I go, "No, I'm stimulated enough right now."
-->'''Dean''': That's for sure.
-->'''Hogarth''': So she says, "Uh-uh, You don't have a challenge, you need a challenge." So now I'm challenged, all right, I'm challenged to hold on to my lunch money because of all the big mooses who wanna pound me, 'cause they think I'm a shrimpy dork who thinks he's smarter than them! But I don't think I'm smarter, I just do the stupid homework! If everyone else JUST DID THE STUPID HOMEWORK, they could move up a grade and get pounded, too! Is there any more coffee?

* Twice in Creator/JohnWCampbell's story ''[[Literature/ThePlaneteers The Tenth World]]'': it's mentioned that when Penton and Blake were on Venus, they got drugged out of their minds after mistaking sodium bromide for sodium chloride. Later, Blake gets drunk on excess oxygen when his spacesuit malfunctions, and his resulting irrational behavior ends up saving the day.

This type of [[IncrediblyLamePun one-shot]] drug use is far more likely to cause [[HilarityEnsues Hilarity]] than to be used in the service of a DrugsAreBad aesop. If there's a WillTheyOrWontThey situation already established between two characters, the writers may be tempted to bring in KissingUnderTheInfluence.
