Premise: In this docuseries, Hamilton Morris -- son of Oscar-winning documentarian Errol Morris -- explores the history, chemistry and societal impacts of some of the world's most unique drugs. Hamilton's work is driven by research -- his apartment is filled with books on the subject -- but he takes it beyond that by going to where the drugs are used to experience them first-hand and find out what happens to the people who use the substances. On his journey, Hamilton studies quaaludes in South Africa, where they are the nation's most commonly used recreational drugs, and traces the history of PCP while traveling across America to speak with addicts, dealers and chemists about the substance.
