Unless you count the player characters need to constantly chug glowing orange juice, no.
There are various items that can be consumed but I wouldn't consider any of them drugs, they are mostly buff and healing items.

There are spider-like enemies in the same area though they can be avoided and aren't particularly bad.

Many weapons from bosses can lay the player out on the ground if hit, may evoke the same emotion. One boss in particular uses an attack where he slams his massive hand on the ground.

There are many points where you can be burned alive, and if you choose to you can burn others alive. While such victims clearly emote that they are suffering, the effect is not particularly graphic.

In order to join a specific covenant the player must “nestle into” a coffin in an underground crypt. This is optional and the player character is able to harmlessly leave the coffin after about 30 seconds.

Depending on whether one NPC's quest is followed, there is a point where they offer to sacrifice their life by distracting a horde of enemies so that the player may pass through. They don't have to die if the player fights with them, but if the player chooses to run through and leave them behind that will be the end of the character.

Sort of. There aren't any scripted jumpscares, but there are definitely times when an enemy can sneak up on you and frighten you or attack from off screen. There are also enemies that hide and can grab you unawares. It's not particularly offensive, and it isn't really a horror game. There are definitely scary parts though. There is an area that is very dark and you are required to carry a light source, even when you do you can only see a short distance and enemies can and likely will appear out of darkness and scare you.

Some nonhuman enemies have spitting attacks. As well as attacks that cause clouds of gas, no farting that I know of.
There is a throwable item called "dung pie" which is poop.
There is also an opportunity to perform a critical attack on a boar where the player stabs a sword up it's bottom.

There’s an option to climb inside a stone casket. It closes on you, and there’s a short stretch where you see from the inside where you’re trapped. This only lasts a few seconds and might be skippable (don’t remember off the top of my head).

There is a character named Gwyndolyn who is referred to as male.
There is evidence supporting however that they are in fact a trans woman (or atleast not cis).
The game never really addresses this and the character's own opinion is never stated.
It is likely that the developers had no ill intent with the character.
Like any community though, there are people that have some very bad opinions and make bad jokes about the character. Though these can be avoided.

Gwyndolin, who is arguably a trans woman, is referred to with male pronouns. In-game messages left by other players frequently call Gwyndolin the t-slur, although this was not the choice of the developers.

Gwyndolin, youngest son of gwyn, was raised as a girl. You could argue that this would mean they are trans. They are an optional boss at anor londo.

Queelag is a half-woman, half-spider hybrid, and her torso is nude, however, her chest is covered by her hair. Also, players can leave messages in your world, and a possible message is "Try finger but hole". I think those are the only sexual parts.

An adult character in Anor Londo is wearing a very form fitting and revealing dress, however they do not seem to be distressed about this and chose to wear it/be there. Players may leave comments such as “Amazing chest ahead”, but that is the extent and can be avoided by playing offline.
