Social drugs are drugs that are relatively safe to use; they can never cause or contribute to overdose and require a certain amount of tolerance to cause addiction. This categorization is also used to determine acceptability for the Drug use precept.Content added by the Ideology DLC

Ambrosia a.png

A soft, rare fruit. Ambrosia tastes wonderful and produces a subtle mood-increasing chemical high. However, if eaten too often, it can generate a mild addiction.

Ambrosia is a raw social drug that moderatly boosts mood and recreation at relatively low risk of addiction.

Beer a.png

The first beverage besides water ever consumed by mankind. Beer can taste good, but its main effect is intoxication. Excessive consumption can lead to alcohol blackouts and, over time, addiction.

Tea a.png

A fragrant tea infused with leaves of the psychoid plant. Drinking it induces a subtle psychite euphoria. This tea is easy to produce at cooking facilities, but can produce psychite addiction if consumed too often.
Many tribes use psychoid tea, both as a daily energizer and as part of social and religious rituals.

Psychite tea is a relatively safe social drug that greatly improves mood, slightly reducing pain and the rate in which pawns get tired, at the risk of addiction. It is relatively very easy to research compared to other drugs, especially for Tribal colonies who suffer a speed penalty while researching more advanced drugs.

Joint a.png

Smokeleaf leaves prepared in small rolls for smoking. The drug improves mood, but also increases appetite, reduces focus and slows movement. Smokeleaf use can produce a dependency.
Joints can be produced at a crafting spot without equipment, and are a fixture in many traditional low-industriousness cultures.

Smokeleaf joints are social drugs that are relatively safe to use, easy to produce, and provide a moderately potent mood and recreation buff, balanced by some drawbacks. Care should be taken however, as the consciousness debuff its high inflicts can cause death in pawns with already lowered consciousness.
