Drugs and Society


Directed by Ben Daitz, Ned Judge

What we know, and what we don't know, about the most popular new medicine in the U.S.

This year, 55 million Americans will spend about 55 billion dollars on the medicine in marijuana. In 32 states and the District of Columbia, they will use it for a myriad of medical conditions, depending on anecdotal advice about the frequency and dosage of cannabis, a plant with over 400 different chemical molecules. It's a messy mix of medicine, policy and politics--while cannabis is still federally classified as a Schedule 1 drug.

Based on the 2017 National Academy of Sciences report about the effectiveness of cannabis for treating the side-effects of chemotherapy, chronic pain, epilepsy, and PTSD, The Medicine in Marijuana tells patients' stories, and those of the practitioners and researchers involved in their care: an infant with unremitting seizures; a man with an inoperable cancer; a woman with chronic pain; a veteran of 5 tours of duty with PTSD.

Across centuries and cultures, people have told stories about the healing powers of cannabis, but the plural of anecdote is not evidence. Now, the science is catching up with the stories, and The Medicine in Marijuana tells it like it is.

The case of Dr. William Hurwitz educates audiences on the complexities involved in opioid painkiller prescriptions.

The story of Dr. William Hurwitz - a preeminent pain specialist sentenced to 25 years in prison for drug trafficking - provides a window into the ethical dilemma of opioid prescriptions. Painkillers give doctors tremendous power to relieve pain, a primary goal of any physician. But this power begets trouble when the same drugs can lead to addiction, abuse and death.

In 2004 Dr. William Hurwitz was convicted of over 50 counts of narcotics distribution and handed a 25-year prison sentence. DR. FEELGOOD traces Dr. Hurwitz's trial and eventual appeal, detailing the events that led to his arrest.

Testimonies from the witnesses in Dr. Hurwitz's case contradict one another - some revere him, while others condemn him. Taken together, their accounts reveal a profile of a compassionate yet flawed doctor. The film, in telling his story, underscores the tension between every patient's right to pain relief and the lawful need for drug control. There could not be a more critical time to spark discussion on the topic, and call for careful thought and action.

After his only son is murdered in the Mexican drug war, a mystic poet launches an international crusade to save his country.

EL POETA tells the story of renowned Mexican poet Javier Sicilia, who ignited mass protests and an ongoing movement for peace after the brutal murder of his 24-year-old son Juan Francisco - collateral damage in a drug war that has left 60,000+ dead since 2006 - the majority civilians.

Drawing on the philosophical, artistic and spiritual dimensions of Sicilia and his movement, EL POETA reinterprets the "hard news" horror story of the Mexican drug war as a deeply personal, poetic and at times even hopeful one, tracing Sicilia's path from poet and father to movement leader and international symbol of grief and redemption.

When used under a doctor's guidance, Adderall, Ritalin, and similar medications can be effective in controlling ADHD. But "pressure over grades and competition for college admissions are encouraging students to abuse prescription stimulants," says The New York Times. Employees-white collar and blue collar alike-abuse them too, for the energy and focus they can provide. And yet the cost of such abuse is high, leading to ever-increasing addiction that produces serious physical and psychological problems. This video follows Randy, a young man with no history of ADHD who began abusing Adderall in high school to improve his performance and, having later dropped out of college, relies on it to enable him to work for days at a time as a handyman for his grandmother. Commentary is provided by Jeffrey Strawn, a child and adolescent psychiatrist and faculty member at the University of Cincinnati, and Richard L. Baum, a psychologist with A.S.A.P., the Adolescent Substance Abuse Program.

Director: Riley Morton and Nils Cowan

Evergreen: The Road to Legalization is the definitive feature documentary film on Ballot Initiative 502, which made Washington the first American state to legalize possession of recreational marijuana for adults 21 and older, when it went into effect on December 6, 2012. Evergreen: The Road to Legalization captures this historic time, providing a balanced view of the issues surrounding Initiative 502 by going inside both proponent and opponent camps to see how citizens are working to change cannabis prohibition policy.

This documentary serves as a case study to demonstrate how Washington State citizens have dealt with the complex politics surrounding marijuana prohibition. What are the local, federal and cultural implications of the first U.S. state voting to approve recreational marijuana possession by a 56 percent to 44 percent margin? How did Washington State get a marijuana reform law passed while Proposition 19 failed in California? Why are many medical marijuana patients, dispensaries and care providers strongly opposed to I-502?

Evergreen answers these questions while tracking the behind-the-scenes efforts of both campaigns - from initial grassroots fundraising efforts, to tense exchanges and conflict-filled campaign stops, to the historic vote by Washington state citizens that effectively ended 75 years of cannabis prohibition policy and its future implications.

Directed by Martin Witz

In 1943, at the Sandoz chemical-pharmaceutical laboratories in Basel, Switzerland, chemist Albert Hofmann, in search of a respiratory and circulatory stimulant, first synthesized LSD.

Martin Witz's THE SUBSTANCE: ALBERT HOFMANN'S LSD is an informative and entertaining investigation into the history of a drug so potent that mere fractions of a milligram can alter a subject's perception of reality.

Viewers learn how Hofmann's discovery became the subject of 1950's Cold War experiments by the American military and the CIA, who saw LSD as a potential weapon. Meanwhile, international psychiatrists and consciousness researchers tried to unlock the drug's medicinal possibilities, wondering whether it might be an effective tool for contemporary psychiatry or neuroscience.

In the early 1960s, Hofmann's "miracle drug" escaped from the lab. The psychedelic substance appealed to the counterculture, whose members saw LSD as fuel for social and political revolution. Could spiritual peace be achieved at the flick of a chemical switch?

The notoriety and sense of possibility surrounding LSD persist to this day. Decades after it first began to appear on international anti-drug blacklists, doctors and researchers have resumed exploring potential medical and therapeutic applications for the drug.

Chock-full of rare archival footage of LSD-defining celebrities from Timothy Leary to Jimi Hendrix, as well as interviews with principal historical witnesses-including scientists, psychiatrists, and Hofmann himself, interviewed just before his death - THE SUBSTANCE: ALBERT HOFMANN'S LSD follows the story of LSD on a fascinating historical, scientific and cinematic trip.

Directed by Andy Wolff and Stefanie Brockhaus

Through a clever dramatic narrative structure, On the Other Side of Life rises above a social environment study to become a far-ranging discourse about the future of an Africa ground to pieces between tradition and modernity.

Lucky and Bongani pretend to be cool and in the know. To survive in a Cape Town township, they learned their lessons early: where to get drugs, where to get money, how to pick up girls and how to get rid of them.

Their mother does not pay much attention to them, but at least their grandmother is on their side. The two brothers share everything: the bed, the food and now even an accusation of murder.

The first thing they get in prison is an unmistakable lesson about the rules there. No questions… newcomers are at the bottom of the hierarchy. Together they must learn who may be attacked and who must be served. It's a matter of survival. And, Once out on bail, something special awaits them-an initiation of a different kind.

The brothers move through three cultures, each of which calls for its own gestures and rituals. The deep rift between the generations becomes painfully obvious. The old people still have the sense of honour of African tradition; their successors have only a tiny chance of escaping the squalid suburbs. What will be their package in life?

    Directed by ZHOU Hao

    An unusual relationship develops between an urban Chinese couple struggling with heroin and a filmmaker chronicling their addiction, in this provocative documentary on drug abuse, filmmaking and friendship.

    For three years, filmmaker Zhou Hao chronicled the lives of Long and Jun, a couple struggling with heroin addiction in Guangzhou. Zhou captures Chinese junkie subculture, its members languishing in a slum flophouse, the equivalent of a modern day opium den. When Long is hospitalized after a failed robbery, Zhou speaks out from behind the camera to intervene. Still, Long and Jun persist, soon dealing drugs full-time to make ends meet. As the couple increasingly offers lies for answers, Zhou must confront his ethical responsibilities to them, as a friend and a documentarian.

    USING probes a dark, cruel reality of contemporary Chinese society that has rarely been seen by any audience. Addicts disclose techniques for dealing with police, confronting sham suppliers and staying high throughout the day. Zhou's unflinching depiction of his friends' repeated attempts to quit blurs the line between filmmaker and subject, and raises provocative questions about the ways in which each uses the other.

    This hard-hitting DVD profiles real kids and real parties that have spiraled out-of-control to teach viewers how to prevent party disasters. Whether it's throwing a party or attending one, excitement, anticipation, peer pressure and poor planning can often get in the way of a teenager's ability to make safe, smart decisions. Viewers listen and learn from teens, parents, prom promoters and law enforcement personnel. The lethal combination of unsupervised parties, alcohol, drugs, and in some cases, weapons, too often results in serious injury, property damage, arrests, and lawsuits. The second half of the program teaches SMART strategies to help teens plan safe celebrations.

    A SMART strategy is detailed:
  • Stay Safe: Don't have or go to parties where there are drugs, alcohol or weapons.
  • Make a Plan: Make a plan with parents, be sure they have all the information they need to have about the party your throwing or the party you're going to.
  • Ask Questions: Make sure you know the Who, What, When, Where and Why of the party.
  • Respect the Rules: Decide what the house rules will be for your party or know the house rules of the party you're going to and respect them.
  • Think Fun: Be creative and have fun. That's the point!

    SELLING SICKNESS exposes the unhealthy relationship between society, medical science and the pharmaceutical industry.

    Drug manufacturers today fund aggressive marketing campaigns designed to create public awareness of previously unknown diseases, or known by less dramatic names. Shyness thus becomes branded as 'Social Anxiety Disorder,' constant worry becomes 'Generalized Anxiety Disorder,' and premenstrual tension is now 'Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder.' The sale of SSRI anti-depressant medications used to treat these and other diseases, such as Paxil, Zoloft and Prozac, has become an annual $20 billion market.

    The film features commentary from paid medical consultants to the drug companies, patients, researchers, patient advocates, advertisers, attorneys, and psychiatrist Dr. David Healy, a critic of the pharmaceutical industry. SELLING SICKNESS also visits trade shows and professional conferences to show how the pharmaceutical industry promotes the use of its drugs within the medical community.

    Co-written by Ray Moynihan (author of the book Selling Sickness, 2005), an internationally respected health journalist and current guest editor at The British Medical Journal, the documentary reveals aspects of the drug trade not mentioned in commercials or magazines, including the deceptive use of clinical trials sponsored by the pharmaceutical companies, the highly addictive nature and many adverse side effects (like suicidal impulses among adolescent patients) of popular SSRI anti-depressants. At an FDA hearing in Washington, D.C., the testimony of parents who have lost their children to suicide starkly emphasizes the need for greater regulation of these heavily promoted and prescribed anti-depressants.

    In a society where the techniques for selling diseases has become even more sophisticated than the medical science which develops cures for them, where everyday emotional problems are touted as epidemic diseases, SELLING SICKNESS sounds a vitally important cautionary note.

    While drug use among teenagers has leveled off in the last few years, a dangerous menace known as "club drugs" offers an even greater threat to today's teens. The names for these easy-to-come-by drugs include Ecstasy, GHB, methamphetamine, Rohypnol (the date rape drug), ketamine and many others. With false promises of "safe" highs, the drugs are packaged specifically to appeal to trend conscious teenagers. While they are often available at dance parties called "raves," club drug substances are now commonly available everywhere, on middle school and high school campuses, in small towns and big cities; basically wherever there are teens. The DVD provides teens with the latest up-to-date information on the dangers of these drugs (including death from overdose) as well as information on evaluating their choices at parties where adult supervision may be lacking.

    Across the country, increasing numbers of young adults consider club drugs a harmless enhancement to a night of dancing, club hopping, or concert going. In this program, young people describe how they learned the hard way that there is no such thing as a safe or recreational drug. For them, MDMA (ecstasy), GHB, Rohypnol, Ketamine, Methamphetamine, and LSD brought trips to the emergency room or to jail; brought depression, loneliness, rape, and, in the case of one high school senior, death.

    Discussion Points:
  • Why is it impossible to know what you're really taking when you ingest one of these drugs?
  • Why do people feel the need to take other drugs with Ecstasy or after Ecstasy use?
  • What are some of the short-term and long-term effects of club drugs?

    Directed by Chris Hilton and David Roberts

    After 75 years of a concerted global fight to restrict the supply of addictive drugs, the world is currently facing unprecedented levels of illicit drug production, with ten times more heroin produced now than during the last "plague" of the 1970s. Dealing with the Demon examines how we find ourselves in this situation, despite the massive international war on drugs. And, what can possibly be done about it?

    Each film in the series interweaves contemporary human stories with crucial scenes from the history of the drug trade, providing a provocative and timely commentary from which to view the ongoing debate.

    Episode I - The Seeds of War traces the growth of the international drug trade, and the failure of the U.S. led process of international prohibition to contain it.

    The film opens with a bumper opium harvest in Afghanistan and links this to the recent rise in middle class heroin use in the United States. This provides the launching point for an inquiry into the history of the drug trade, which takes us to former British opium factories on the banks of the Ganges, and through the archives of Persia and China. The Seeds of War asks how much of our current predicament is of our own making? Has our fear of addiction and lack of faith in treatment led to the entrenchment of a policy which doesn't work?

    Episode II - An Unholy Alliance examines the relationship between the drug trade and war, detailing the involvement of the CIA in Vietnam and Afghanistan during the Cold War.

    From the time of Chiang Kai Shek in China, through the front lines of the Cold War, in South East Asia, the Golden Triangle, and later in Vietnam, An Unholy Alliance examines how priorities designed to defeat communism, led to the protection and spread of drugs. Now that the Cold War is over, perhaps we have a chance to face the shadow, and deal with the demon?

    Episode III -Containing the Fallout investigates the spread of heroin use, its role in fueling the AIDS epidemic, and explores the most effective means of dealing with illicit drugs. The film examines the historical evolution of what is called a harm reduction strategy and how it operates. Harm reduction, with its goals for public health as a whole rather than the elimination of drug use per se is exemplified best by free needle and syringe exchange programs.

    Containing the Fallout observes how the historical tussle between the criminal view and the medical view of drug use is now played out against a world wide plague of opiate addiction. AIDS is finally forcing many nations, including our own, to confront the reality of failed drug policies.

    Filmed in fifteen different countries (in Asia, the U.S., Australia and Europe) at considerable risk to the filmmakers, Dealing with the Demon is a compelling view of one of the darkest aspects of recent history.

    Hong Kong, the drug capital of southeast Asia for the last century.

    The second program in the series "The Heroin Wars" examines the 30-year War on Drugs in Hong Kong, which has been the drug capital of southeast Asia for a century, ever since the Chinese ceded it to Britain to harbor the opium fleet. In Hong Kong opium was sold under a government license until the end of World War II, when Britain enforced the UN treaty against narcotics. In the 1960s Hong Kong's suppliers and addicts switched from the relatively innocuous opium to the stronger and more addictive heroin because it was easier to smuggle and quicker to consume.

    The film follows the fortunes of the Triad gang, which controlled the selling of heroin on one street corner. Over the years some of the gang evade the police, but others are arrested and jailed. Ah Sing tries to kick the habit but fails, and eventually dies of an overdose.

    The film also follows the Hong Kong police as they raid heroin factories and distribution centers in what appears to be a futile struggle, since they seldom reduce the amount of heroin reaching the gangs on the street level.

    In the 1990s, the kings of opium in Burma switch sides in the narcotics carousel.

    The final program in the series "The Heroin Wars" returns to the Shans' war for independence, led by Khun Sa, the second "King of Opium". In 1993 the Shan People's Representative Committee declared itself no longer part of the union of Burma and the civil war moved to a new plane of brutality that shocked the world. Lo Hsing- Han meanwhile joined the government forces and eventually brings Khun Sa to his knees, regaining control once again over the narcotics trade, but this time for the military dictatorship.

    Today both men are rich and powerful, and the amount of opium produced in Shan State has increased tenfold, flooding Europe and the United States with cheap heroin. In spite of massive US aid, no one has been brave enough to break the vicious circle that is the international drugs trade. The narcotics carousel will continue to turn, to the immense profit of everyone on board and to the intense suffering of the addicts and the Shan people.

    Lo Hsing- Han, Khun Sa and the beginning of the war on drugs in Burma.

    The first program in the series "The Heroin Wars" picks up the story in the 1960s when the Burmese Army seized power in a coup sweeping aside the constitution and Parliament. The Shans, who had only recently joined the Burmese Union, began their war of independence. Opium was the Shan farmers' only source of ready money and the guerillas began to take 10% of the crop as a tax and transported it in convoys to Thailand to buy guns. And so a deadly alliance was born.

    In the 1970s, as part of Richard Nixon's War on Drugs, the US joined in an all-out attack on the convoys and, using the Thai police, sent an invitation to Lo Hsing- Han, the first "King of Opium", to negotiate an end to the opium trade, only to have him arrested and thereby ensure that the opium trade would continue unabated under the second "King of Opium", Khun Sa.

    Teen drug abuse isn't limited to illicit drugs. Many OTC (over-the-counter) drugs are misused by kids—from cold remedies to pain killers to diet pills. This program explores the most common abuses of OTC drugs and shows the chemical, biological and psychological damage that can result from abusing these ordinary drugs. Particular attention is paid to DXM, the powerful medication linked to recent deaths of young people across the country. DXM is a legal drug found in many OTCs, but it has the same qualities as drugs considered much more dangerous like heroin. The cold tablet form of this drug is the basis of a new and dangerous form of OTC drug abuse called skittling, which can also result in coma or even death. The dangers of this kind of abuse are brought home through the tragic story of Jennifer Darling, a high school student whose apparent experimentation with the drug was a cause in her own death. Students will also hear a no-nonsense message from a district attorney describing the severe legal consequences teens can receive if found driving or committing a crime while under the influence of these substances. The program also teaches viewers how to carefully read and understand OTC drug labels for active ingredients and potential overdosage.

    Powerfully presents the life-altering impact of a drug arrest, trial, conviction and incarceration. The accounts and dramatic reenactments of young people who broke the law and got caught, show the harsh realities of being handcuffed, arrested, booked, fingerprinted and locked in a cell. Program underscores the fact that any drug arrest has life-long consequences for the individual, family and friends. It affects finishing high school, college admissions, job prospects and employment, immigration status, and the rights that attach to citizenship. Program also looks at the legal consequences of using a fake ID; underage possession and use of alcohol; and drunk or impaired driving. The costs of crime are very high—from the legal fees to the toll on lives and the stigma of a criminal record that cannot be erased.
