DRACONIAN: Love and Death with the War on Drugs is a 10-minute documentary about HIV positive activist Ott Suwannawong and the murderous crackdown on drug users in Thailand in 2003. Ott is a heroin addict who was imprisoned in the late ’90′s and, without access to clean needles, contracted HIV. His story is a clear example of how, even in prison, prohibition-based drug policies propel the spread of HIV and fail to limit drug supply and demand.
