language
There is strong language ('motherf**ker', 'f**k') along with mild language such as 'shit', 'ass', 'God', 'damn' and 'hell'.
drugs
Characters are repeatedly seen smoking and sharing marijuana joints and occasionally using bongs. There are scenes showing marijuana being refined, without specific details of the processes involved, and also of drug dealing.
There are references to racist attitudes faced by black people in US universities, as well as to systemic racism in US society. A woman talks, in undetailed fashion, about the domestic abuse she experienced at the hands of her husband. There are scenes of gun threat and we hear gun murders take place, with no visual detail. Archive black and white news footage shows rioting and a real image of a man with a bloodied face. There are cancer references and scenes of emotional upset as characters grieve for lost loved ones.
