** There is also ''spiked'' marijuana floating around. Some unscrupulous drug dealers (which aren't very scrupulous group to begin with) put other drugs in their weed so as the get people hooked on them. Hallucinogens are one of the more common drugs seen in the capacity.

* The film version of ''Film/TheMenWhoStareAtGoats'' inverts this: Near the end everyone gets high on LSD due to spiked food supplies. They just start having a really good time, like they took marijuana laced with ecstacy.

This page also covers the use of exaggerated or inaccurate effects in other drugs. Alcohol has a history of being portrayed as hallucinogenic; this has its own trope in PinkElephants.

* Uniquely reversed by ''Film/{{Skidoo}}'': The film's climax involves spiking the food supply of a prison with LSD as part of an escape plan. However, [[CriticalResearchFailure only one member of the cast or crew had actually had any experience with the drug]] ([[spoiler:[[TheMarxBrothers Groucho Marx]]'s final film credit]]), and they weren't anywhere near that sequence. So, lacking any sort of direction, everyone settled for either acting ''drunk'', or [[LargeHam trying to compensate with volume]]. How they got Timothy Leary to endorse that is a mystery.

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hrZLc9lqQM0 This cop]] who baked pot brownies with marijuana taken from a perp, ate half the pan, then called 911 because he thought he was dying. (For the record, while it is believed by some to be impossible to fatally overdose on marijuana, having a panic attack while under its effects can make you ''feel'' like you're about to die, and of course you can do stupid things under the influence that can get you killed.)

* ''Film/{{Friday}}'' sort of touches on it; when Craig gets high, aside from the mellow feeling, fits of giggling and occasional paranoia, he also sees double and/or gets blurry trails, sounds tend to echo, and he hallucinates at least twice. He's also smoking the stuff used by a guy whose NAME is Smokey, and for good reason. In fact the only time Smokey even looks ''affected'' is in a flashback, when he smokes a joint laced with angel dust.

* In ''Film/HowHigh'', smoking marijuana and smoking a dead president causes a spirit to appear and communicate.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/TouchOfEvil'' treats marijuana as just about the most dangerous drug out there. Heroin gets a brief mention, sure, but it's the "reefer sticks" planted on Suzy that are seen as the real damning evidence, and when she's told some people are high on pot, she takes immediately takes it as a sign that they're dangerous. And even the criminals who deal marijuana are careful about not using it themselves, saying no one in their family "gets hooked" on the stuff.

* In the early 1900s, absinthe was LSD. It was blamed for corrupting children and causing criminal behavior and loose morals, the usual. In reality, absinthe is no more apt to be psychedelic than any other alcoholic drink. The ''amount'' in which it was consumed, on the other hand, was often more than enough to cause the alcohol psychosis. Remember that the absinthe's heyday had come after the phylloxera outbreak, which made wine (the drink of choice for most of the affected population) scarce and expensive, so absinthe has come to be used as a substitute, and was drank accordingly despite being up to ''seven'' times more potent than common wines. Even when diluted, it was usually drunk with the copious amounts of sugar that masked its extremely high alcohol content.
