The House I Live In


Episode Info

Eugene Jarecki's provocative "The House I Live In" examines America's 40-year war on drugs, which has resulted in more than $1 trillion in government spending, 45 million arrests and an incarceration rate that's the highest in the world. At the same time, illegal drugs have become cheaper and easier to get. The documentary shares stories from those on the front lines, including narcotics officers, drug dealers, grieving parents and reporter-turned-TV auteur David Simon ("The Wire").
