The House I Live In - a documentary about the War on Drugs by Eugene Jarecki.
PLEASE watch this, especially if you’re an American. It’s a great movie, but what makes it that way is taking a subject that has been boiled down to soundbites and takes a more honest look at the consequences of policies put in place by men who could benefit from them.
There really needs to be a national dialogue about this subject, at least one that is more complex than “drugs are bad, people who do drugs are bad” and it won’t happen with an uninformed populace. My heart breaks for these people, some who were set up to fail because of the policies put in place.
Watch it, let me know what you think!
