Storyline

Drug 101 is a story of an African American family who tries to use the illicit drug trade to free themselves from poverty and provide a safe haven for their children. One night the foolishness of this approach comes crashing down on them and sends them into a self-destructive spiral that takes years to stop. The father, the son Chip and the baby all die on the same night. The mother begins her dependence on crack and alcohol. The remaining two sons, Jamal and Malcolm take two opposite roads...one becomes a drug dealer the other has the opportunity to take "the road less traveled by" and use his academic gifts to escape, but he is torn. Jamal took the blame for his thoughtless act years ago and even after being imprisoned, reaches out to save him one more time. The daughter falls in love, gets pregnant and leaves the family. Both she and Malcolm try to free the mother from the ravages of her addiction. Ultimately, the story is one of redemption. The triumph of the human spirit, the ... Written by Rashida M. Turner
