The Greek word for sorcery or witchcraft is Pharmakia, from which we get the modern English word pharmacy.
Christians have for centuries been pointing out that the use of drugs is witchcraft and the use of drugs to cast spells is sorcery.

Gal 5:20 Sorcery/witchcraft, is from the Greek word, Pharmakia the same word we get pharmacy from. it means the general illicit use of drugs (same application as today) and the use of drugs to cast spells etc. Ask for discussion: Who are the two drug dealers of the Bible? Elymas and Simon: Acts 13:6 ; Acts 8:9 Notice this is illustrative of what Gal 5:20 condemns. These men, called sorcerers, magicians, witchcraft.

Harpers Bible Dictionary: On the lowest level were the imposters (2 Tim. 3:13) who played their tricks as do circus magicians today. Between these were the sorcerers, enchanters, and charmers who could cast spells and knew how to use herbs, potions, and drugs. quoted by Steve Rudd, author of Drugs and the Bible: E, Shrooms, Cocaine, Crack, Marijuana
W. E. Vines Bible Dictionary: In sorcery, the use of drugs, whether simple or potent, was generally accompanied by incantations and appeals to occult powers, with the provision of various charms, amulets, etc., professedly designed to keep the applicant or patient from the attention and power of demons, but actually to impress the applicant with the mysterious resources and powers of the sorcerer. quoted by Steve Rudd, author of Drugs and the Bible: E, Shrooms, Cocaine, Crack, Marijuana
