''Drug & Drop'' is a manga written by Creator/{{CLAMP}} that is currently being serialized by the magazine ''Young Ace''. Originally titled ''Legal Drug'' during its serialization in ''Monthly Asuka'', it went into hiatus in 2003, and came back in 2011 in a different magazine.

The story follows Kazahaya Kudo, a young man who collapses in the snow after running away from home and thinks that he doesn't want to die. He is found by Rikuo Himura, who takes him to the Green Drugstore, where he gets a job from Kakei, the eccentric owner. Since both guys have supernatural powers, they take on "special" cases on the side that never go as smoothly as they'd hoped. There's also the beginnings of a MythArc in play, with Kazahaya hiding from his twin sister, Kei, Rikuo searching for a mysterious woman named Tsukiko, and Kakei and his lover, Saiga, preparing for ''something'' that's looming over the horizon. And it all comes with the boatloads of {{subtext}} and HoYay that you'd expect from most of CLAMP's work.

Formerly available from Tokyopop as ''Legal Drug''.

Not to be confused with the use of legal drugs in a work; that's a GRatedDrug.

!!Contains Examples of:
* AManIsNotAVirgin: Kazahaya gets teased a lot about this, though given how incredibly sheltered he was growing up, his only potential partner would have been [[{{Squick}} his]] [[{{Twincest}} sister]].
* AnimalMotif: Kazahaya is often compared with a cat, and he himself said that his sister is very "cat-like".
* BespectacledBastardBoyfriend: In spite of his spectacles and accusations of a sadistic streak, Kakei isn't one.
* BishieSparkle: Kakei has this in Kazahaya's head.
* BitchInSheepsClothing: Kakei is a mild example. Rikuo and Saiga are both well aware of his sadistic streak, but Kazahaya still hasn't caught on to the fact that if Kakei is smiling, he is not going to have a good day. He does seem to genuinely care about the boys, though.
** It could be just a really well kept fašade given the theories and hints that [[spoiler:Kakei may actually be the the very sweet, YamatoNadeshiko from {{Wish}}, Hisui.]]
*** Confirmed in Drug and Drop where we see [[spoiler: Kakei and Saiga transform into Hisui and Kokuyou and a flashback chapter shows how they came to have the shop.]]
* BloodbathVillainOrigin: [[spoiler:Kei was kidnapped when the two siblings sneaked out their cult's surveillance. After a month they found her and bring her back; Kazahaya then sees her cover with the blood of the kidnappers she killed because they were keeping her away from him.]] After that everything went downhill.
* BloodSplatteredWeddingDress: [[spoiler:[[http://mangafox.me/manga/drug_drop/v02/c012/23.html Kei's kimono is splattered with]]]] ''[[spoiler:Rikuo's]]'' [[spoiler:blood after she "gather some information" about Kazahaya from him.]]
* CainAndAbel: [[DevelopmentHell We're not really sure what their deal is,]] but it's implied that Kazahaya ran away from home in order to avoid something that would have eventually pitted him and Kei against each other...[[{{Twincest}} maybe]]. [[spoiler:Later revealed that he ran away because the cult that keep them locked was planning to kill one of them; as he's not planning to die, escaping was the only option to save himself and Kei.]]
* CastFullOfPrettyBoys
* ChainsOfLove: In the official artwork.
* ChekhovMIA: Tsukiko, who disappeared without a trace and left a blood-splattered room behind her. Rikuo's convinced that she is alive out there somewhere, but we probably won't be learning her official status [[DevelopmentHell anytime soon]].
* ChickMagnet: Rikuo.
* ContinuityCameo: Besides Kazahaya and Rikou making cameos in ''{{xxxHolic}}'', characters from other CLAMP series have shown up in this series.
** In the 2nd CCS movie Touya is seen wearing the {{Wish}} bunny mascot suit for work. Guess which store the mascot is for.
** In the second chapter of ''Drug & Drop'', [[spoiler:Watanuki]] appears as [[spoiler:owner of Yuuko's shop]], tying into the end of ''{{xxxHolic}}''. Incidentally, given that there is a reference made about the urn that was retrieved back when the series was Legal Drug, one must wonder how much time had passed since then in both series up until the point where they met again.
** In chapter 9 of ''Legal Drug'', Kazahaya meets [[Manga/SukiALikeStory Hina]] at her high school graduation and gives her a new outfit from recurring CLAMP brand name Piffle Princess in exchange for her school uniform. When Hina tells [[SternTeacher Shirou]] about it shortly afterward, he isn't too thrilled with how she [[ThePollyanna blithely accepted]] some random stranger's request for her uniform, no questions asked.
** In chapter 9 of ''Drug & Drop'' Kazahaya meets Kohaku, the clumsy angel from Manga/{{Wish}} who, somehow, awakened early from [[PronounTrouble his/her]] [[MythologyGag 100 years of slumber.]]
* CooldownHug: Kakei gives one to Kazahaya to calming down over Rikuo's injuries and remembers him that he's there to support him. Counts as a HeartwarmingMoment [[spoiler:and another hint that Kakei may be Hisui.]]
* CoolShades: Saiga.
* CreepyCrows: [[spoiler: Kazahaya's sister Kei uses crows to spy on him.]]
* CreepyTwins: Kazahaya is not one, but Kei has enough creepy for both.
* {{Crossover}}: subtly with {{xxxHolic}}, and more blatantly with Manga/{{Wish}}.
* CuteKitten: A [[spoiler:shapeshifting]] one is the McGuffin for one of the boys' jobs.
* TheDreaded: [[spoiler:After she proved that she's very comfortable with killing]] Kei becomes this. Nobody is bold enough to go against her will.
* DisguisedInDrag: Kazahaya ends up in drag as part of his side jobs far too often for his liking.
* TheDitz: Kazahaya.
* DudeLooksLikeALady: Kazahaya.
* TheEmpath: Kazahaya
* FestivalEpisode
* IdenticalStranger: In chapter 10 of ''Drug & Drop'', [[http://mangafox.me/manga/drug_drop/v02/c010/18.html Kakei and Saiga were compared to Hisui and Kokuyou]] by Kazahaya. [[spoiler:Subverted.]]
* KimonoIsTraditional: Kei is always wearing kimono. Also a young Kazahaya in flashbacks.
* LikeCannotCutLike: [[spoiler:Kazahaya and Kei]] couldn't see each others past and future as their powers are very alike.
* MeaningfulName: "Kazahaya, your name is like a warning. It's telling you that one day you might disappear, just like the wind." Whether this will come true or not is yet to be seen, but [[ScrewDestiny he's determined to survive no matter what]].
* NamesTheSame: [[Manga/{{Wish}} Kohaku]] was surprised that Kazahaya had the same family name that Shuuichiro Kudou (the man Kohaku fell in love with) and asked if he knows him. [[spoiler:It may be relevant.]]
* NoSocialSkills: Kazahaya.
* PowerMakesYourHairGrow: [[spoiler:Kakei while he reveals he's Hisui.]]
* PsychicPowers:
** MindOverMatter: Rikuo.
** {{Seers}}: Kakei. [[spoiler: After an encounter with a vampire-like creature that can tell the future, Kazahaya apparently gains this ability.]]
*** Chapter 12 reveals that [[spoiler:Kazahaya]] always was a seer but he only could [[DreamingOfTimesGoneBy see pictures of the past out of persons or objects.]]
** [[spoiler:Kei at the other hand, is a straight example, since she sees pictures of the future out of persons or objects.]]
* RapeAsDrama: [[spoiler: Nayuki's backstory]]
* RealMenWearPink: Saiga cooks and sews.
* TheReveal: [[spoiler:Saiga and Kakei ''ARE'' Kokuyo and Hisui.]]
* SituationalSexuality: The entire student body of the boarding school in the third volume. As Nayuki explains, they're horny teenage boys completely cut off from female contact, so who else are they going to turn to?
* SlapSlapKiss: Kazahaya and Rikuo, naturally.
* {{Sleepyhead}}: Saiga spends half his scenes asleep on Kakei's sofa ([[OfficialCouple and sometimes while resting his head in Kakei's lap.]]) [[WildMassGuessing Fans have speculated that it's because he can psychically search for things or people--like Tsukiko--in his sleep]].
* SmokingIsCool: Saiga.
* SpiderSense: Kakei.
* StepfordSmiler: Nayuki, [[spoiler: to the point where his soul manifests outside of his body to let his true feelings be known.]]
* StoicSpectacles: Kakei.
* TallDarkAndSnarky: Rikuo and Saiga.
* TraumaticHaircut: Kei suffers one [[spoiler:after she was kidnapped as a child.]]
* {{Tsundere}}: Rikuo. As Saiga puts it, Kazahaya is important to him but he will never admit it.
** Also Kazahaya himself. When Kohaku asks him if he has someone so important to him that he wants to grant that person's wish just because it's ''that person's'', Kazahaya automatically thinks of Rikuo...and then fiercely tries to deny it.
* {{Yandere}}: Kei. Oh good Lord, ''Kei''. The fact that she's a yandere over her brother just makes it more disturbing.
-->'''Kei''': Like this thread, Kei and Kazahaya are tightly linked, if someone ever pull us apart *smiles* ''[[CuteAndPsycho I'll never forgive them!]]''
** [[spoiler:Kei was the one who attacked Rikuo to get information about Kazahaya's whereabouts.]]
** [[spoiler:She killed her kidnappers because they didn't let her return to her brother's side or didn't bring her borhter to her side.]]
