11. Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope: Spice
Influenced by Dune, the original Star Wars film alludes to the illicit substance spice. Though it provides medicinal benefits, Wookiee slaves are worked to death in the spice mines of Kessel where it is produced and turned into recreational drugs.
C-3PO’s even frets to R2-D2 that they’ll “be sent to the Spice Mines of Kessel, smashed into who-knows-what!”
Compared to many of the drugs in science fiction and fantasy, the Star Wars version of medicinal spice sounds a lot like marijuana on this universe’s Earth.
Sadly, due to law and money-hungry individuals, slave labor exists on many marijuana farms.
Don’t Do the Drugs In Science Fiction And Fantasy
Even though they might seem like they’ll take your typical Friday night from a Netflix session to a mindblowing, pain-free adventure, most of the drugs on this list come with a long list of negatives. Keep it real and stick to the natural, real remedy of weed.
The Matrix Red/Blue pills aren’t drugs. Tired of reading that.
Blue is placebo and Red is the tracking device. Waking you up from battery sleep, and helping the “real” humans find you in the human energy harvesting complex. There’s no drug effect.
