Director Matthew Cooke presents a satirical look at the deadly serious topics of drug dealing and drug enforcement by placing them within the framework of an incendiary educational film, and speaking with a wide spectrum of outspoken celebrities and government officials who all have their own unique perspectives on American drug policy. Meanwhile, a variety of real-life drug dealers speak candidly about the perks and pitfalls of trafficking in illicit substances. Other interviewees include Adrian Grenier, Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson, Susan Sarandon, and Russell Simmons.
