Getting high with The Simpsons
Most television shows avoid the issue of drug use like Jerry Falwell avoids a gay pride parade. One major exception, however, is The Simpsons. Matt Groening's wildly popular study of dysfunctional family bonding relies as heavily on drug humor as Diff'rent Strokes did on "whatchootalkinboutwillis." All the members of the Simpson clan -- and a great many other residents of Springfield -- have enjoyed a wide variety of drug-induced exploits, ranging from binge drinking to unapologetic marijuana use to LSD-like hallucinations.
