We all have our vices. For some of us, this means binge-watching way too much TV; for others, it can mean a weekend drug habit. No matter what your stance is on the recreational use of substances, wouldn't it be interesting to find out which drug you are according to your sign? Drugs have their own personalities - they can be uppers, downers, or revelation-inducing - just like the signs of the zodiac.
Our charts can tell us everything from what Disney princess we are to which horror movie villain we are most like. Knowing the drugs for each zodiac sign doesn't mean you should run out and grab your sign's illicit substance, but it can give you a bit of insight as to what you can become addicted and how to avoid it.
Aries - Cocaine
Aries are perpetually on the move and all about that fast-paced life. One of Aries's positive personality traits is the confidence with which they move through life. However, an Aries with an unchecked ego may have a bit of a god complex at points. Cocaine makes its users talkative, strong-willed, and ready to take on the world's biggest problems, just like the ambitious Ram.
Taurus - Weed
A Taurus is known for their stubbornness and their unmoving nature. Tauruses are also homebodies who love to surround themselves with creature comforts, especially food. And you know what makes food taste better? Weed. As unmoving Earth signs, Tauruses have no problem being couch locked for a few hours while indulging in some of their favorite snacks and TV shows.
Gemini - Dimethyltryptamine (DMT)
If Geminis were any drug, it would be dimethyltryptamine (DMT), a psychedelic drug with fleeting but intense effects. Much like a Gemini's flighty nature, DMT provides an extreme but ephemeral trip. DMT is speculated to be a chemical released as we dream and possibly when we die, so experiencing DMT can be vivid at one moment and completely lost the next. This is very much in line with a Gemini's tendency to be hellbent on one thing and then totally forget about it and change course within the same moment.

Cancer - Heroin
Cancer is a Water sign associated with deep, dark moods. When they're feeling negative emotions, they have a tendency to back away from the world and retreat into themselves. Like a crab, Cancers burrow themselves into their homes and wait for the harsh tides to ebb. Heroin converts into morphine once it hits the brain and quickly binds to opioid receptors. Users feel an intense rush and relaxation, letting the world melt away. Characteristically speaking, heroin is a mirror of a Cancer's dark side and tendency to fall inwards.
