In the Orville, cannabis and alcohol are common even on duty. Smoking tobacco is unknown. That is until Moclans find some from a time capsule and it turns out they are very susceptible to nicotine addiction.

Christian, husband, father, granddaddy, son, American. Here I stand. I can do no other. God help me.

If I used pot myself, instead of smoking it (which wastes a lot of the THC,
smells very distinctive, and forces me to fiddle with matches and such) I'd
brew it in beer or wine.  Lots more buzz for the buck, and no cop is going
to bother me if I've got a few six-packs of home brewed beer around, as
long as I don't put a distinctive label on it.
