Been a long time since I saw the film. If I remember right, there was a sequence in which the Wicked Witch causes poppies to bloom along the Yellow Brick Road, which puts them to sleep. The Good Witch then kills the poppies with a snowstorm.

Clearly, Dorothy recognized that her dependence on opiates might prevent her from reaching her goals. Unfortunately, she merely replaced a heroin addiction with a cocaine addiction.
