From what the film presents, how has our approach to punishing drug users (both historicallyand currently) been comparable to a step by step process to push away or even eliminateâ€œundesirableâ€ groups of people?

While it provides important information, it is also bias in itsnarrative. While there are many logical reasons to agree with its narrative, the primary purpose of having you watch it for this class isto connect some of its larger ideas to sociological concepts we discuss.
