Default End the Drug War Movement-New Independant Film: "The House I Live In"

Film produced by Brad Pitt, Danny Glover, John Legend and Russel Simmons.

It starts with seeing this movie. It ends when the drug war does.

40 Years, $1 Trillion, 45 Million Arrests: This is the War on Drugs.

Yes me too Susan. I'm just hoping something catches hold and doesn't let go. I was happy to see the letter the celebs collectively got together and sent to Pres. Obama. We are so long overdue for a BIG CHANGE!!

This is another documentary that's out there (supposed to come to TV this year) narrated by Morgan Freeman:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...&v=i2vqpNT1kV4

and there's a guy with a kickstarter project for a drug war film that looks real interesting too.

Change is in the air but it is coming slowly!

The Drug War is not just the "war" that has put some of our family members behind the wall, it is a literal war! We are spending billions dispatching our military to other countries, not just the DEA but army, navy, marines and countless planes, boats and pieces of equipment to fight something that cannot be contained.

Right now, the number one drug of addiction in this country is LEGAL pharmaceuticals!

And we have just as many coke, meth and heroin addicts as we have ever had! Prohibition does not work. Treatment and harm reduction for those who need it and leaving functional recreational users ALONE is what works.

I wonder if anyone involved in the 2013 drug policy released yesterday watched this movie. The changes are gradual, but the nation is slowly waking up.
