Split into three parts, Cocaine takes an in-depth look at the cocaine trade in South America. Peru, Brazil, and of course, Colombia are put under the microscope.

When people speak about drugs, they usually don’t think about Adderall or Ritalin. Big Pharma would probably prefer nobody watches this documentary, which focuses on people who use prescription drugs to help focus or become better in some way. Take Your Pills shows that perception pills are just as dangerous, if not more dangerous, than illegal drugs that you would never give a child.
7. The Legend Of 420

Most documentaries about drugs are very somber, but The Legend of 420 is comedic and enlightening. With Marijuana slowly becoming more acceptable across the nation (legally), it only makes sense to follow the source of the “green rush.” The history of marijuana, how it became illegal, and how far we’ve come since then, are fully explored in this documentary.
8. DMT: The Spirit Molecule

DMT (dimethyltryptamine) is the most intense psychedelic drug on the planet. It is produced naturally by the human brain and is found in most plant life. Dr. Rick Strassman’s research of the drug is put on full display in the documentary, which stars everyone’s favorite drug advocate, Joe Rogan.

This is another documentary that Big Pharma may want you to stay away from. The statistics of overdoses, the effects of addiction, and the billions of dollars pharmaceutical companies make off the pain of other people are all fully explored in Prescription Thugs. If you thought cocaine dealers were bad, you have no idea.
10. Super High Me
This popular documentary put a spin on Super Size Me, which found one man showing the effects of eating only McDonald’s for 30 days straight. As you can imagine, smoking weed for 30 days straight had little to no negative effects on this documentary’s main character. In fact, he has several hilarious positive effects, such as a higher sperm count. Who knew.
