Abilene buys weed, and is seen smoking a joint in one of Roland's "fluid-karma" induced hallucinations. "Fluid-Karma", a synthetic substance which somehow relates to Baron's ocean wave fuel, is implicated as being tested on soldiers, and characters inject it into their necks in at least 3 scenes.

Plenty of social drinking and Boxer guzzling from a six pack (the cans are still together, not separate). In addition, Abilene drinks alcohol to intoxication in his "Fluid-Karma" induced hallucination, and is clearly drunk at the end.

Pot plants and meth labs are present in the background of the neo-marxist compound (no actual drug production seen).

A man tries to quickly find his brother. However, when he does, the 4th dimension collapses upon itself.

Boxer Santaros tries to get everybody to move to the rear of the blimp, or he will kill himself.

Two people try to kill two soldiers before they can kill them.
