DIVERSITY FILM: THE HOUSE I LIVE IN. 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. The House I Live In captures 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 both the causes and the profound human rights implications of America's longest war.
