Addiction

obxlgbt
Many times throughout the show they referebce weed and other drugs. Teens and pre-teens drink alcohol while others vape and smoke joints. One of the older teens hosts a houseparty where cocaine is explicitly shown being used. Drug addiction is a big part too, as one person gets best up multiple times due to not paying their drug dealer back.

No, but it comes close and could be triggering. Scene lasts from 22:30-25:00 (whole scene is not the bad part though, just the end). Topper gets mad at Sarah because she says that she's ready but then says she isn't.

Only few times throughout the show. At one point a teenager undresses a girl down to her bra before she stops it, it is fairly long. Another is not as explicitly shown but seems to be more consensual and positive than the first. References to blow jobs and other crude stuff.
