  1. I found a link to the real documentary:

    The owners of this site should upload and make this legitimate.

  2. ⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️
    *************WARNING: INTENTIONALLY MISLEADING**************
    THIS IS NOT the “High On Crack Street: Lost Lives In Lowell” DOCUMENTARY. Some LOSER purposely took a screenshot of a scene – then uploaded an old 48 Hours Episode from 1989 “Return to Crack Street”.

    I HATE it when people do this! I get excited to watch free documentaries on this site which I truly appreciate – only to have jerks come along pull these stunts and ruin it.

  3. The one who was Janet from another planet was killed for trying to sell someone fake crack.the guy strangled her to death then kept her body hidden he’s in prison now for murder.sad

  4. The link goes to a 48 hours rerun instead. Fun to see Bernie Goldberg in his younger days and Dan rather is his usual wooden self.

  5. I am Facebook friends with Dickie, and he is doing really good now. He got out clean, bought a gym, got married, and has about five handsome boys now. I think it’s really sad about Brenda, I liked her.

  6. Not only were there too many commercials, but they were placed in totally inappropriate places and destroyed any continuity the film had. Very disappointing. I understand the need for commercial space, but do so without damaging the integrity and flow of the story.

    • The worst of it and i don’t know if u found out but this isn’t the documentary u entered this site to watch. They took 1 of the images from the documentary and slapped that up their giving everyone false expectations. Just another Ass hole using clickbait to their advantage. What u ended up watching was a special about the addiction on crack cocaine on 48hrs.

  7. Too many commercials on this website.
