I dunno. But, my moveset for drugs would be Acid, Frenzy Plant,  Grass Whisle, and Forests Curse.
I want to downvote this but if i do i'll lose points
It's TWO points, and besides, you're SUPPOSED to downvote stuff if you think it's bad >.>
This answer would have made an excellent comment. It is actually quite funny, albeit unnecessary. I do hope it is converted to a comment before it reaches 420 down votes, though.

There are a few reasons to this, actually:

  • Drugs need not necessarily be bad. They might be medicines too.
  • Drugs as such are not 'bad' or 'derogatory'.
  • Most banned nicknames involve racial or gender-based discrimination.
  • They also include crude language.
  • It is not possible to ban every word that can be bad in one way or the other; there are far too many of those.

On the whole, "drugs" do not fit into any category, and therefore, it is not necessary to ban it. Besides, if they did, people would find another to bypass.
