Locke's drug
Main Discussion
 Theories may be removed if ... 
  1. Stated as questions or possibilities (avoid question marks, "Maybe", "I think", etc).
  2. More appropriate for another article.
  3. Illogical or previously disproven.
  4. Proven by canon source, and moved to main article.
  5. Speculative and lacking any evidence to support arguments.
  6. Responding to another theory (use discussion page instead).
  • This does not include responses that can stand alone as its own theory.
  • Usage of an indented bullet does not imply the statement is a response.

See the Lostpedia theory policy for more details.

  • The "drug" is not a drug at all, but a concoction of dirt and foliage from the Island. In Boone's case the substance is applied to an open wound, and in Locke's case eaten. The user is ingesting the "soul" of the Island.
  • During John's encounter with the Smoke Monster, MIB gave him the know-how on the potion. We know that the Smoke Monster gives flashes to certain people. I believe and I don't think I'm alone in saying, that the Smoke Monster gave John a "reflection" on the whole Island. John sure looked pretty sure of himself when he was mixing that potent potion up. Almost as if he knew exactly what he was doing, like he was shown how!
