Poisoned Foods as Recreation

Been working on a sci-fi setting, and been wanting to avoid the sterotype of humans being jack of all trades, or just plain tougher than anybody else (if we go with the HFY stuff, though this'll no doubt turn into such a thread), or the consumate diplomats. So I thought "You know what's weird? Humans fucking poison themselves for fun and profit."
Okay, so we know that on planet earth, the ability to eat stuff that is actually poisonous to you and survive it isn't exactly the most common skill for macrobiological beings.
Humans developed it as a method of hygene we're pretty sure. Eat the poisonous, spicy, red plant, deal with the hell your ass will be feeling, but it'll kill all those nasty parasites in you. So humans that could eat spicy (read: poisonous) food were better able to survive not only because they had an additional food source, but because they were killing off all the parasites in their guts.
A nifty advantage on top of this is that our bodies can process a lot of stuff with crazy side effects that would probably kill us if our livers/kidneys/various other purification systems weren't up to snuff.
What if Humanity's big contribution to the galaxy is recreational drug usage? Oh, other species had the basic ideas, but they never really got beyond their equivalents of weed because anything harder would have been too much trouble on their systems. Medicine for them required far more precise measurements than it did for humans because the difference between medicine and poison for them was so much larger than it is for us. The idea of "Hey, I wonder if this morphine stuff could be used to have a good time" wouldn't have occurred to them, even -after- they had the technology either cybernetically or genetically to allow them to do that kind of stuff safely.
