Brought to you by the Democrats Club, this acclaimed documentary film chronicles that "for the past 40 years, the war on drugs has resulted in more than 45 million arrests, $1 trillion dollars in government spending, and America’s role as the world’s largest jailer. Yet for all that, drugs are cheaper, purer, and more available than ever. Filmed in more than twenty states, The House I Live In captures heart-wrenching stories of those on the front lines — from the dealer to the grieving mother, the narcotics officer to the senator, the inmate to the federal judge — and offers a penetrating look at the profound human rights implications of America’s longest war." http://www.pbs.org/independentlens/house-i-live-in/film.html Come view the film and then participate in a Skyped Q & A session with one of the producers.
