Yes, yes, the fantasy does not have to be like reality, but that does not imply that it can not be realistic. Fantasy is not synonymous with surrealism. A fantasy work can be extremely realistic or technical and, if it keeps the necessary resources, like magic, it will remain fantasy. Good examples are Harry Potter, Discworld and the genre of technomagics (a fusion of steampunk and fantasy, sometimes including cyberpunk). Anyway, my question is whether the drugs to appear in the fantasy, and in what works and what kind of drugs. I am not referring to the typical/popular soft drugs (alcoholic beverages, tobacco, tea, coffee...) but to drugs, fictitious or real, comparable with the LSD, marijuana and cocaine Some types of potions of fantasy can be considered like drugs, if these have psychotropical, nootropical or narcotic (causes addiction, regulates emotions) effects Please avoid speak about typical potions like potions of love and strength, since these are very know. Then... what are these and in which works do these appear? The truth would be interesting the idea of a wizard "narcomancer" whose "magic" would be based on drugs... Does something similar appear in a fantasy work?
