* PlayedForDrama in ''FanFic/TheRiseOfDarthVulcan''. As a result of the Princess including vampire bats in their genetic makeup, thestrals literally must drink blood to survive. But the rest of the ponies found this icky, so they made up some nonsense about the blood hunger being a mental disease, banned the drinking of blood, and forced the thestrals to use an alchemical substitute that keeps them all borderline starving. Needless to say, the Princess was ''furious'' when she found out that Celestia had endorsed all this.

** Doubly so if it's a [[ChurchOfHappyology Scientologist]], as they view the two as one and the same. Since its inception, the Church of Scientology has held that psychiatry is nothing more than a crooked racket of drug-pushers, and therefore, people who use medication to treat mental illness are junkies who are kept addicted by their greedy doctors. Creator/TomCruise infamously landed in hot water for this when he criticized Brooke Shields for taking antidepressants.

* Mia in ''Film/EvilDead2013'' was once a junkie, and her friends brought her to [[DontGoInTheWoods a cabin in the woods]] as part of an intervention. When she gets [[DemonicPossession possessed by a demon]], her friends initially write off the signs of her possession as a case of her going through withdrawal. It's only with her possession [[TheCorruption spreads]] to the rest of the group that they realize it has nothing to do with drugs.

* One ''SaturdayMorningBreakfastCereal'' plays with this - the situation is a woman being held back from a syringe, and we assume she's on some sort of illegal drug. Then it turns out it's insulin. [[spoiler:Double Subversion: she's not diabetic.]]

* Poppy-seed muffins and cakes ''do'' contain trace amounts of opium; not enough to affect the human body, but just barely enough to make a person test positive on a drug test. At least the cheap, off-the-shelf drug tests; more advanced ones are able to tell the difference. Confirmed by the Series/MythBusters.

At least the cheap, off-the-shelf drug tests; more advanced ones are able to tell the difference. Either way, one should be advised not to eat poppy seeds on the day of the drug test, just in case. Confirmed by the Series/MythBusters.
