If there’s one thing the fictional worlds of film and our own very own real one have in common, it’s drugs. Even in the characters in galaxies far, far away or in the humble forests of The Shire want to find a way to get high. Some seek enlightenment—to understand and fully know the truth the world that they’re faced with. Others want only to escape their reality and decrease physical, psychological and emotional pain. For some, drugs aren’t done for their ends, but rather as means and tools to achieve a masterful plan.

Junkies on black meat even feel compelled to eat their own vomit in an effort to attain the high again.
