Doug can identify any pill by looking at it and any 1980s rock song by the first three notes, but doesn't understand credit scores. Kevin got married and had a kid too young and is now on parole after serving jail time for growing marijuana. The three of them dabble in petty crime and believe they have a talent for it, but things soon get out of hand...

Using these questions as starting points, Meier and Geis evenhandedly explore the role and function of law relating to six major issues that often divide Americans today: prostitution, drug use, homosexuality, abortion, pornography, and gambling.
