** And strangely enough, about 75% justified. PartyDown is pretty good about portraying drugs realistically and it's specifically mentioned that Roman ingested about a tenth of an ounce of high-grade marijuana. For someone not accustomed to the effects of marijuana, eating that much certainly could make one feel as if they were going out of their mind. The other 25% is RuleOfFunny.

* In ''PartyDown'', Roman eats multiple pot brownies without realizing they're laced. He curls up in the bathroom and calls for an ambulance, because he is either dead or soon will be. After the paramedics show up, the hippie fellow who baked the brownies leads Roman on a journey to meet his spirit animal and Roman writes a screenplay (on the toilet paper). The paramedics take him to the hospital, not because he's overdosing on pot, but because they've never seen anyone that high before and want to show the nurses.

* ''Literature/TheLittles'' episode "Prescription for Disaster" does this with prescription painkillers. Our main characters visit a friend's home who lives behind the walls of a little girl whose mother is addicted to the drug, causing her to feel low-energy and irritable toward her daughter, which are fairly realistic side effects. However, Dinky accidentally gets a taste of the drug and starts hallucinating as if he were on acid. Perhaps a Little would experience different side effects from humans?

** Played with in another episode that featured two typical stoner kids who run a headshop. They have a more realistic reaction to weed where they're just very relaxed and giggle a lot. However their [=POV=] gets a little "trippy" after listening to Hank talk while high.

* One LouisCK story involved him overdosing on weed (as he forgot that modern weed is vastly more potent than the stuff he smoked in his teenage years), and proceeded to have a very unpleasant experience.

** Others use marijuana in moderation because it has a calming, steadying effect for them, better than some antipsychotic drugs, or say it helps those drugs to work better, even decreasing side effects.



* 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 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.

Added DiffLines:

* The placebo effect is known to work most strongly on patients' thoughts and feelings, such as pain and nausea. As such, it is possible to induce hallucinations by dosing a subject with a substance that they believe to be a hallucinogen. The effect is even more convincing if the substance has any other psychoactive effects. Thus, marijuana ''can'' cause hallucinations - but only if the subject already buys into this trope.

* In the [[BasedOnAGreatBigLie fictional]] MiseryLit book ''Literature/GoAskAlice'' the protagonist tries marijuana, amongst other drugs such as heroin and ecstasy, but they all seem to give the same effect.

** 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.
