Explore the human-rights implications of the country’s least winnable war – the war on drugs. Consider the statistics: More than 40 years since it began, it is the longest conflict in American history. It has resulted in more than 45 million arrests and made the United States the world’s largest jailer. It has fueled armed conflict overseas, devastated poor communities and disproportionately targeted people of color. And yet, drugs are cheaper, stronger and more plentiful than ever. INDEPENDENT LENS: The House I Live In airs Monday, April 8, 2013 at 10 p.m. on WXXI-TV/HD (DT21.1/cable11 and 1011)

Watch The House I Live In Takes a Hard Look at The War on Drugs on PBS. See more from Independent Lens.
