Drugs are a central\u00a0theme in storylines\u00a0and plots of American movies. Just how often? \u00a0Wikipedia lists a whopping 707 movies on their current \u201cList of Drug Films.\u201d\r\nThese movies often contain road trips as well as drug trips. We mapped out both\u00a0\u201ctrips\u201d and locations of some of the most iconic movies that contain drugs as a central theme or have drugs in memorable scenes. Check it out:\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \t\r\nFear and loathing in Las Vegas\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nTrip: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas starts in Beverly Hills and then goes on a strange and entertaining trip to Las Vegas. Eventually the movies \u201cheroes\u201d head back to LA on Interstate 15.\r\n\r\nDrugs: This one has it all! Cannabis, mescaline, thorazine, LSD, cocaine, amphetamines, barbiturates, ether, opium, hashish, hash oil, heroin,\u00a0adrenochrome, and more. The whole movie feels like one giant acid trip.\r\n\r\n\u00a0\r\n\r\n \t\r\nBlow\r\n\r\n\r\nTrip: Blow doesn\u2019t follow one direct path. Its characters go from Southern California to Boston at one point, while others get to Boston from Mexico. They also travel from Boston to Colombia to California, and then from California to the Otisville Correctional Facility in update NY.\r\n\r\nDrugs: Cocaine and Cannabis are the drugs of choice in this movie, hence the title \u201cBlow.\u201d\r\n\r\n\u00a0\r\n\r\n \t\r\nTraffic\r\n\r\n\r\nTrip: \u00a0A movie strictly about the trafficking of drugs to Mexico. This movie goes from Mexico to Cincinnati, Ohio, over to Washington DC and then back to Mexico.\r\n\r\nDrugs: Cannabis, Cocaine, heroin, and crack cocaine all share the spotlight in Traffic.\r\n\r\n\u00a0\r\n\r\n \t\r\nBeavis and Butt-Head Do America\r\n\r\n\r\nTrip: This one quite obviously doesn\u2019t focus on reality, as it takes the strangest and least lifelike "path". Beavis and Butthead start in Las Vegas and hit a number of American landmarks on their way to Washington DC, including the Grand Canyon, Petrified Forest National Park, and Yellowstone. They\u2019re later seen driving up Interstate 81 in Virginia to eventually end up in DC.\r\n\r\nDrugs: Beavis and Butthead have a major "trip" when they try Peyote in the desert.\r\n\r\n\u00a0\r\n\r\n \t\r\nRoad Trip\r\n\r\n\r\nTrip: In the classic 2000 comedy, four friends take off on an 1800 mile road trip from Ithaca to the University of Tennessee and then to the University of Texas at Austin to try and retrieve a videotape mistakenly mailed to a girlfriend.\r\n\r\nDrugs: Marijuana is used quite often throughout the whole movie.\r\n\r\n\u00a0\r\n\r\n \t\r\nDue Date\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nTrip: In one of the most recent road trip movies, Robert Downey Jr reluctantly pairs up Zach Galifianakis as they travel from Atlanta to Los Angeles (with a stop the Mexican border and then the Grand Canyon).\r\n\r\nDrugs: The unlikely pair share lots of cannabis and Vicodin.\r\n\r\n\u00a0\r\n\r\n \t\r\nHarrold & Kumar Go to White Castle\r\n\r\n\r\nTrip: In the midst of getting stoned, Harrold and Kumar go from Princeton University to Cherry Hill, New Jersey in search of White Castle.\r\n\r\nDrugs: Cannabis is Harrold and Kumar's drug of choice, but \u00a0MDMA and cocaine can also be spotted.\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n \t\r\nDude Where\u2019s My Car\r\n\r\n\r\nTrip: Dude Where\u2019s My Car has the shortest distance, as the whole movie takes place all around Sierra County, California. Still, there is a lot of drug use packed into a small area.\r\n\r\nDrugs: Cannabis. Lots and lots of Cannabis.\r\n\r\n\u00a0\r\n\r\n \t\r\nThe Wolf of Wall Street\r\n\r\n\r\nTrip: The Wolf of Wall Street is another one that shows the main characters going all over the world. They\u2019re seen going from Queens to Wall Street to Long Island to Las Vegas to Long Island to Switzerland to Long Island to Italy and back to Long Island, then to New Zealand.\r\n\r\nDrugs: What drugs aren\u2019t in this movie? Cocaine, Crack, Quaaludes, Cannabis, Xanax and Morphine all show up several times.\r\n\r\n\u00a0\r\n\r\n \t\r\nFlight\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nTrip: Denzel Washington\u2019s flight crashes between Orlando to Atlanta early on in this movie. The rest showcases a textbook addiction case.\r\n\r\nDrugs: The pilot spins out of control with alcohol, cocaine, and marijuana.\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n \t\r\nLeaving Las Vegas\r\n\r\n\r\nTrip: Nicolas Cage is an alcoholic screenwriter who travels from Hollywood to Las Vegas as his life goes out of control.\r\n\r\nDrugs: Plenty of cocaine and alcohol leads to a depressing\u00a0ending.\r\n\r\n\u00a0\r\n\r\n \t\r\nThe Hangover\r\n\r\n\r\nTrip: One of the best comedies of the decade starts out in California and then spends a blurry night in Las Vegas before heading back to CA in time for a wedding.\r\n\r\nDrugs: GHB and rohypnol give the characters a very hard time remembering what just happened.\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nWhile a number of these movies take a humorous take, the characters in movies like Flight and Blow show a much more realistic and devastating look at the lives of extreme addicts.
