Is it alright to ask a question about the movie reference of a drug, only because the producer claims it to be real?

Question in Question:

Does CPH4 exists?

    $\begingroup$ just for humor: if the producer knew that such a drug exists and knows how it works then he must have tried it once.. he should have been making much better movies if such a drug was really available.. $\endgroup$ – WYSIWYG Aug 14 '14 at 7:29

We should not keep questions with so little backup (like one man's claim). They are good questions, but would be a far better fit for Skeptics.se. When someone has actual evidence of a molecule, and wants the name, that's different.

So, basically, closing was the right thing to do, but I personally would have flagged them for migration to Skeptics as well, so that the users who asked them get a good answer, rather than a 'closed as off topic'.
