Watch 2 movies about drugs and behavior, and then write a reaction paper comparing the statements that each movie makes about drugs in society.

This assignment is relevant to understanding the role of drugs in modern society. You will watch 2 movies about drugs and behavior, and then write a reaction paper comparing the statements that each movie makes about drugs in society.

Here are some questions that you can think about while viewing the films and that you can comment on in your paper:
How do the movies portray drug use? Does it make drugs seem “cool,” or does it demonstrate consequences that can arise from drug use?
How would you describe the physical, emotional, and/or spiritual health of the individual(s) in the movies who are actively using substances?
How would you describe the substance dependent individual’s relationships with other people?
What motivation do the substance dependent individual(s) in the movies have to change/stop using substances? What are some of their obstacles to change?
