Talk:Extreme Sneezing

From Discworld & Terry Pratchett Wiki

I had assumed 'extreme sneezing' was a euphemism for taking cocaine.

Please correct me if you know I am wrong.

I suppose no one knows you're wrong, but one bothersome point is the lack of any mention of Tezuman Marching Powder or the like on Discworld. The only powdered drugs seem to be consumed by Trolls (well, the odd Shaman, too). Humans and Dwarves on the plains get by on alcohol, apparently. --Old Dickens 03:02, 4 February 2011 (CET)
Come to think of it, there were drug merchants with warehouses in the original pair of books but they disappeared. Vetinari wouldn't ban anything outright; why isn't there a Guild of Drug Dealers now? --Old Dickens 03:18, 4 February 2011 (CET)

The only other instance of drug-taking that strongly comes to mind is Mr. Tulip, who seems keen to take anything and everything on board. However, it does always come across as an activity associated with criminality despite the fact that killing and stealing are legal under certain regulations. 03:53, 8 February 2011 (CET)
