My film focuses on what makes a person a criminal in the eyes of the Justice system in terms of the drug war. It is representative and a snap shot of what a criminal is under America’s drug laws and the immorality and wrongfulness behind criminalizing people for drug usage and possession. It shows how being a drug user does not make you a bad person yet the law and the way it is enforced says one is bad person by making them a criminal.

The film follows a college student named Carol. Carol is seen driving in the film until there is a flashback to Carol with two of her friends exploring in nature and smoking weed. Within the flashback one of Carol’s friends, Mary, give her a number of a drug dealer. Within the flashback the three friends also discuss topics like nature, school, drugs, and the drug war itself. After the flashback Carol pulls up to the house and the audience realizes it is the drug dealer whose number Mary gave her. Carol then buys hard drugs from him. She leaves and on her way home, she is pulled over by a police officer. She is searched along with her car. While her car is being searched, she goes through all the possible outcomes of the cop finding her drugs – being arrested, going to jail, getting suspended, fighting with her parents, and getting denied a job for her record. However the cop does not find anything. She then drives home and puts the drugs on her desk and the film ends.

The film is an anti-drug war film that shows how drug users are not criminals and how drug use has no relevance to a person’s morals and how it can ruin a person’s life who probably does not deserve it.

Steve

Steve is smart and opinionated. He is a black male. He is a decent student, but he is smarter then what he shows in his grades. He has strong opinions about the war on drugs but does not use any drugs himself except for marijuana. He wants political change within the justice system and the war on drugs. He is a stoner and can be somewhat spacey, but does not look like or necessarily act like a stereotypical stoner.

Males, aged 19 to 23 from Rhode Island, USA

Jim

Jim deals drugs to make money while in college in order to finance himself and to
also be able to focus on his studies. School and getting a job in the field he wants is what is most important to him and he understands that that is why he is in college. Drug dealing is only a temporary occupation to get him through college. He takes his work seriously but also enjoys getting out and having fun. He is social, but a little more of an introvert. He smokes weed occasionally but does not usually use

Males, aged 19 to 23 from Rhode Island, USA

Police Officer

The police officer wants to make an impact on crime, especially crime associated with
illegal drugs. He wants to scare and potential bust Carol for marijuana and whatever other illegal possession she may have. He abuses his power slightly and is slightly aggressive. He searches the car and her without probable cause – he takes advantage of the fact that he smells marijuana in the car. He thinks by busting Carol for drugs he is ultimately doing her a service.
