The House I Live In - Director Eugene Jarecki on the War on Drugs: 'Everybody is a victim' (November 2012)

Publication date: 26 November 2012

This mini-documentary was published by The Guardian in November 2016. The mini-documentary looks at the failure of the 'war on drugs' in the USA. 

Topics covered are how the criminal justice system criminalizes the poor and uneducated. It poses the question; is the war on drugs a major success in that it keeps police officers busy, private correctional facilities thrive, it keeps illegal establishments justified in its sub generated activities, and it is a success based on different terms than the public states one.
