The real world is rife with controlled substances that can result in a wide variety of effects, both positive and negative, but they pale in comparison to the psychedelic experiences offered up by some of the more exotic drugs in the annals of science-fiction. Unlike actual pharmaceuticals, imaginary drugs can do anything their creator wants them to do, and some writers have really run wild with the concept over the decades.

By taking a trip through some of the most notable sci-fi stories of the last half-century, one can sample substances as diverse as NZT-48, Soma, the Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster, and even Death Sticks. Best of all, science-fiction provides by far the safest way for one to experiment with drugs - through the eyes of an entirely fictional character!
