Chief High is a documentary about the recreational use of marijuana at the high school level. It touches on the dangers of marijuana and the reasons why people still use the drug anyways. Chief High also touches on the abuse of substances, marijuana and beyond.

Interviewing more than 50 high school students and teachers, I attempt to portray the allure of the drug but also present the dangers, both health-related and not. Aside from personal views of enjoyment, Chief High also explores the history of The War on Drugs as well as the current political conflict surrounding mass incarceration due to marijuana.

The documentary is currently not publicly available to protect the identities of the interviewees.
