In a world where Roxie Pell ’15 wasn’t an intern for the Wesleyan Center for Prison Education, this post was
never submitted submitted by a different intern:
The War on Drugs has never been about drugs.
Join the Wesleyan Center for Prison Education this Thursday for a
screening of the film “The House I Live In,” followed by a discussion
with the filmmaker, Eugene Jarecki.
About the film:
In forty years, the War on Drugs has accounted for more than 45
million arrests, made America the world’s largest jailer, and damaged
poor communities at home and abroad. Yet for all that, drugs are
cheaper, purer, and more available today than ever before. Filmed in
more than twenty states, THE HOUSE I LIVE IN captures heart-wrenching
stories from individuals at all levels of America’s War on Drugs,
offering a definitive portrait revealing its profound human rights
implications and examining the extent to which it has been fueled by
political and economic corruption.
