One of the most unrealistic things about Star Trek is that Starfleet isn't full of habitual, recreational drug users. Like I don't expect Picard to be blazing up in the captain's chair, but the Enterprise is perhaps the galaxy's highest concentration of nerds with virtually unlimited access to some of the most sophisticated chemical synthesizers in the federation. You can't possibly expect me to believe that a bunch of chem majors are just going to get off a twelve hour shift where they've been at the mercy of a gigantic space face or staring down a fleet of klingons or whatever and then be like "welp, guess I'll hit the gym!" No way dude. It's the 24th century and this fucker has like 12 degrees in astrochemistry. He's going straight back to his room to cook some shit in his closet and before his next shift he's going to have psychic powers or be able to see parallel timelines or some shit, and have a great time doing it.

My theory is that officers are strongly encouraged to keep that shit low-key. Remember that episode where Broccoli hooked himself up to the holo deck, and took over the ship? Well, that shit tends to look bad on one’s resume. Most officers do that shit, but keep it super sly. I am pretty sure Broccoli got his ass moved to Earth because he got too high at work.

Why do you think I was on the ship? Why Picard had some kind of weird relationship with me he didn't want to talk about? Let's just put it this way- you can't get everything from a replicator. Sometimes you need to be a good listener to find unusual items. Guinan was just Picard's dealer, low key

12 hour shifts, barely any time for drugs. It would be like living my past 20 years, bake non stop when I get home and live in a waking nightmare everyday at work till I'm a little more coherent at the end of the day, ready for more drugs..

It's pretty clear that most don't even drink, since synthahol is a roddenbery cop-out that basically has no serious intoxicating effects, so it's consistent there if a bit unrealistic TOS addresses this more sensibly. Presumably though what you do in your time off-duty is up to you, contingent on your rank and responsibilities leaving you on call (the captain can likely never afford to get intoxicated short of official leave off-ship, if you're a lowly ensign who cares).

Especially considering they are military to some extent or degree. I can't imagine nobody would at least invent a still.

12 hour shifts it would be like my week at work, get baked till I drop then spend the next day at work in a waking nightmare till it wears off by the end of day then time for more drugs.

I'm sure the stock answer is that they get high off life, new experiences, better the human condition bla blah. I don't buy that, but I also don't buy the idea that Sisko would be an insufferable stoner, or Picard a sesh gremlin.

tbh I think the Orville handles illicit substances well, people get stoned and drunk et cetera, but they are not obsessed with getting high.
