  • Blair gets Sue Ann to join "the group". Little did she know what it would entail.

    This episode of Dope is very powerful and deals with the subject of smoking pot. I believe there are two underlying issues here. First issue is the use of an illegal substance which happens to be dope and the other issue is the peer pressure, (wanting to fit in with a particular group or clique). I was surprised to see the Sue Ann character actually smoking "dope". This topic was so controversial that it was banned on "Nick at Nite". Note see "Breaking Point" episode. It is again a very informative episode of the two issues mentioned above. I am glad that this show basically broke new group on the controversial subject. I am quite impressed with this episode. I highly recommend this episode to all people. I believe that younger viewers should be accompanied by an adult so that they can learn from these issues.
