No actual dogs appear in the movie. A scene depicts a dog dying but it is a flashback using puppets (of a sort).

Marijuana is used for a minute, but does not play a role in the plot of the movie and they are not seen "tripping".

While you don't see a dog explicitly die on screen, it is mentioned and a "shadow puppet" dog's head separated from its shadow puppet body is shown.

Yes. Bees are present in most of the movie. There's also depiction of being stung by a bee, and the wound plays an important part in the movie later on.

Near the end of the movie, the main guy is turned around from facing a wall. Half of his body is covered in holes similar to a hive and we see his arm closer up after his hand is cut off. He looks like this until the end.

It's unclear for much of the movie if the main character's injury (bee sting on his hand that swells, hardens, and then spreads up his arm like an infection) is visible to others or not, so could be read as unstable reality / hallucination.

There is a scene in an elevator. It can be seen as a rather suffocating scene, but that's just the point, since it's a scene that's supposed to be scary.

No. A girl with a shaved head dies, but there's nothing that really implies she's gay. There actually is a gay male couple in the film and they both survive.

Not sure if this is the right category for the comment, but I wanted to give a trypophobia warning for near the end of the movie. A character’s skin begins to appear with several small holes all over it.
