There is a lot of violence and physical altercations in this movie (although most of it would not count as domestic), but most of it is not shown explicitly on screen.

There was a time or two when I wasn't sure whether what someone was smoking was a cigarette or a joint, but in any case we're not told that someone IS smoking a joint, so I'm answering "No". However, in the beginning, one character says that he does illegal drugs sometimes.

As a part of the experiment, the "prisoner"-subjects are kidnapped, as the fake police act as if they were arrested, and they are taken away in a police car. The subjects are aware that it is a part of the experiments, but it still appears to have been an unforseeable circumstance for them.

Several characters are shown having breakdowns, anxiety attacks, panic attacks, and such throughout all of the movie because of the abuse. Would not recommend watching at all if triggered by this.

No. But someone protests by refusing to eat his food, and the guards punish him and put enormous pressure on him to make him eat it. I imagine this may act as a trigger for some.

There are plenty of degrading comments in this movie, majority of them about LGBTQ+ individuals (although nobody in the movie is explicitly gay or trans). The f-slur and borderline transphobic comments are spoken multiple times.

Not shown explicitly, but there is a scene where the "prisoners" are forced to sexually assault each other.
There are also many sexually degrading comments, but no explicit sex-scenes.

The film is documentary-styled, and what happens in the film is sad and upsetting, but it ends happily.

No guns in the movie, the only weapon used is the baton.
