* ''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.

* In the opening of an episode of {{House}}, the soon-to-be patient of the week is a priest who hears a knock at his door. When he answers he sees a floating Jesus complete with stigmata and crown of thorns. Later in the episode Dr. Hatley chalks this up to ''the single highball of liquor'' the man consumed just before.

It is worth mentioning that large doses of marijuana can produce hallucinations in some people. The array of effects experienced from any dose vary considerably from person to person. Research into this effect may be partly responsible for the myth, along with journalists that ignored how large a dose the "psychonauts" used and what counts as a hallucination to experimental psychologists. Also, even those who regularly ''smoke'' cannabis may experience unexpectedly strong effects when ''vaporizing'' it, which is a more efficient method of administration. When ''eating'' it, it can take a long time to kick in, so a common mistake is to eat too much because it seems to have little effect - only to find oneself extremely inebriated for half a day when the full effects come on. Such an overdose can cause visual and auditory hallucinations, but those are not enjoyable at all and often combined with panic attacks, nausea and so forth. Hallucinations remain unlikely, but judgement and driving will be impaired. A person who has consumed enough Marijuana to experience hallucinations is unlikely to be able to walk on two feet, let alone drive, so anyone who would have [[TamperingWithFoodAndDrink consumed it unwittingly]] would have called an ambulance at this point and not go on a wacky drug-fueled adventure.

* There's an episode of ''{{Frasier}}'' which parodies this--Martin eats a hash brownie, not realising what it is, realises he's stoned after a short period of time, and then starts to ''think'' he's hallucinating when he sees a video in which Eddie, the dog, appears to be speaking. The video is actually a mock-up commercial, introduced in another subplot, that overdubs Eddie with his mouth moving with Frasier's voice.
