There is blood splatter when people are shot, and a scene in which a man is tortured and set on fire by his cartel colleagues.

Drugs

There are a number of scenes showing drug use, including the smoking of marijuana joints and the use of bongs.

Sex

There are scenes showing sexual activity between the two drug dealers and their mutual girlfriend. These include images of thrusting and some nudity but no strong detail. A woman is briefly seen riding a man during sex, also without strong detail.
