Throughout the film, all the members of the gang is seen doing drugs at one time or another, with the notable exception of Emma Watson's character. That same character, while seen (rarely) holding a cigarette and (even more rarely) put it to her lips, is quite obviously never actually inhaling said cigarette (see Goofs).
