List of drug films

Drug films are films that depict either drug distribution or drug use, whether as a major theme or in a few memorable scenes. Drug cinema ranges from the ultra-realistic to the utterly surreal; some films are unabashedly pro- or anti-drug, while others are less judgmental. The drugs most commonly shown in films are cocaine, heroin, LSD, cannabis (see stoner film) and methamphetamine.

There is extensive overlap with crime films, which are more likely to treat drugs as plot devices to keep the action moving.

The following is a partial list of drug films and the substances involved.
