there was a movie with omar epps and L.L. Cool J that was pretty good
Harvard Man

You already listed it but Fear and Loathing > *
Grass

Educational and entertaining
Am I the only person who thought that Harold and Kumar sucked?

Yes.

I fucking love that movie.
City of God was pretty good. i like the shit they can put in it that wouldn’t fly in an american film, like shooting the little kid.

Salton sea was cool too, Val Kilmer is my favorite actor.

In Too Deep! That movie was awesome, I loved LL Cool J in that movie. He was God!!

read the first post before posting.

The part where he shoves the pool stick up the guys ass cuz he slept with his wife
Bongwater (very funny)
Maria Full of Grace <3

Glad you added the obvious Blow Traffic and basketball diaries. I think your list is complete!!
Blow is one of my favorites.

I also liked FEar and Loathing, didn’t care too much for requim for a dream or trainspotting though.
Formula 51 (aka The 51st State)

Might wanna take ‘rolling kansas’ off the list. It sucked hardcore and hardly had any drug content at all.

Luke Wilson
Alicia Witt
Jack Black
Brittany Murphy
Andy Dick

Bongwater ftw!

"Maria Full of Grace" is a great one to highlight the effects of the drug culture on people who don’t do drugs.

"Traffic" is a good one for that too.

My Top 5 Drug Dramas
1) Trainspotting
2) Maria Full Of Grace
3) Requiem For A Dream is a great one comparing legal vs. illegal drugs.
4) City of God
5) Traffic
love and a 45. its kind of off the wall, but really a good movie.well worth the watch.
"Goodfellas" is a good one to show how the Mob was corrupted by drugs.
already added but Spun and Salton Sea are very good movies.
homegrown…billy bob, ryan phillipe, bon jovi, john lithgow, jamie lee curtis, judge reinhold…its just a fucking hilarious movie. Cant believe it wasnt on the list.

What about movies like …. Thirteen, Kids, Bully, Party Monster, and Gia?
Do you just want movies that contain drug scenes or movies purely based on drugs and their use. If it is the first you can name just about an R Rated movie out there.
Ones that have a large part that includes drugs. Pulp fiction, for instance, isn’t one of them.
How we’ve gone this far without Scarface I have no idea.

Someone mentioned Maria Full of Grace; I know there are a bunch of foreign (especially Latin American) films in this category that are excellent, but can’t think of any of them offhand. Would the Barbarian Invasions count? Easy Rider?
there is a little known james woods movie called another day in paradise that sounds like it should be added to this list. Also less than zero with robert downey jr.

Blow
