I don't know why you would want to bring them any drugs. If you brought them psychoactive drugs and they had no context for them, you might cause some real chaos. However, they may have some other method than drugs, such as mushrooms or poisonous toads.

Outside of penicillin, I do not think that any drug should be brought to the island. Out of curiosity, why would one wish to subject them to psychoactive drugs in the first place? I believe that bringing a drug of this type would corrupt the population.

Outside of that, if they are like all other cultures, I am sure they have something of their own which functions in the same way as psychoactive drugs.
