A group of four teens - Carissa, Kriss, Stephen and Crystal - all use marijuana regularly. Although their drug use causes problems they each profess that smoking weed is their hobby and their passion. When they are "flipped", each must confront his or her drug use in a different way. Arrested for being under the influence and convicted of drug trafficking, Stephen is sent to a treatment facility for a term of up to 18 months. Kriss, who believes driving under the influence is an acceptable risk, is the driver in a DUI car wreck. Transported to hospital, he learns he's been "paralyzed for life". Carissa is thrown out of her home by her tough love Mom, stays at a hostel for homeless teens, then "overdoses on methamphetamines and dies". Crystal, the "ringer" in the group has a real-life story: her brother Caleb did die of a drug overdose. The teens react strongly to their dramatized situations, vowing they don't want to see any of this happen for real.
