    heroin made a comeback after the US invaded Afghanistan, got rid of the taliban (which had banned farming poppy) and opened the door for an increase in heroin production. had nothing to do with those two movies.

    If anything, Trainspotting, convinced people to not try heroin.

    have you actually SEEN Trainspotting?!

    It portrays the subject as horrid trip down the drain. there is no reason anyone watching the movie should think "oh hey i should try shooting up some Ectasy or heroin or speed", the movie makes it very clear that for every joyful shot there is price to be payed and very quickly the price becomes too much.

    so NO it did not inspire people to take up narcotics, much in same vein as violence in entertainment dose not inspire violence in real world.
