We ARE the People: Drug User Organizing in the United States

2013

Sawbuck Productions, Inc. in association with the International Network of People who Use Drugs (INPUD).

This documentary film introduces the five original drug user unions in the United States and demonstrates how the War on Drugs is in actuality a War on People. The film explores the harms associated with, and stigma behind, many of the terms often used to describe people who use illegal drugs, including “drug abuser,” “addict,” “drug misuser,” etc. WATP also illustrates some of the ways that drug user unions not only provide support for their members but also actively fight against the stigma associated with drug use, and the war on drugs that sustains it.
