    Any anime about illicit drug use?

    One of my favourite books of all times is Snakes and Earrings by Hitomi Kanehara. It's based in Japan-- translated into English actually for those who can't read Japanese. Not so much about illicit drug use, however same type of people, same mood. I'm honestly just interested to see if the topic has been used seeing as how a gram of weed can land you 5 years there. Seeing if there maybe even is a culture there.

    No anime comes to my mind, but there are plenty of manga about or involving illicit drugs.

    Cowboy Bebop and Samurai Champloo had a few comedic scenes with it. Rainbow has a couple scenes. The winner is Welcome to the NHK! as he's constantly tripping on drugs and contemplating suicide. Though it's never stated in the anime, in the manga he definitely did drugs and the light novel went a whole step further with drugs. It's somewhat common themes in seinen manga, light novels and visual novels however.

    Ghost in the Shell, Eden: It's an Endless world, and maybe some other sci-fi like Mardock Scramble.

    Drug use is generally pertaining to sci-fi or gangster.

    Pretty sure drugs are even more "illegal" there than they are here so they don't even reference them much. There are some fucked up animes that make you think the writer was on drugs though.

    There is no "more illegal" but they have less freedom for a lot of things(mainly firearms) so they can't run a substantial drug trade.

    Ah yeah, though that's mainly japan. China is a lot different in that respect.

    It's alsothat Japan doesn't have any real way to obtain drugs. Their respective land is too small and too populated for a big drug trade, so they need to import it.

    After you finish the anime you should check out the novel, objectively speaking I think it's better.
