In the past 40 years, the War on Drugs has accounted for 45 million arrests, made America the world’s largest jailer, and destroyed impoverished communities at home and abroad. Yet drugs are cheaper, purer, and more available today than ever. Where did we go wrong, and what can be done?

Join us for an advance screening of Eugene Jarecki’s new film exploring the War on Drugs and a conversation about the price society pays to wage it. Winner of the 2012 Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival, The House I Live In‘s use of alarming statistics and touching personal perspectives demonstrate the failure of America’s drug war — and it may be the wake-up call needed to effect change.
