The House I Live In

What has the war on drugs really cost us? Is it worth it? This new documentary, from the maker of the killer flick “Why We Fight,” seems to be a real eye opener.

While plans began to combat substance abuse as far back as 1914, it was President Richard  Nixon that really coined the phrase “War on Drugs” in 1972. Since then, billions have been spent and many lives have been lost.

The filmmaker argues that it is all a scam, and that the cost far outweighs the gain. In fact, the filmmaker claims that the war on drugs only hurts the public, while the private sector and government  continue to rake in the benefits. And profits.

The movie hits The Lincoln Plaza Cinemas at 1886 Broadway in New York on Oct. 5.
