Reason TV is hosting a special New York City reception, panel discussion and screening of the new Drug War documentary America's Longest War on Tuesday, September 24.
From murders on the Mexican border to death row in Mississippi, America’s Longest War, from Reason.tv, shows how the Drug War is destroying families and communities. Viewers will understand the horror and barbarity of the War On Drugs on a visceral level after viewing this film.
The documentary tells the stories of those victimized by the War On Drugs, including a Marine who survived two tours in the Iraq war, only to be shot and killed by police in a drug raid where nothing illegal was found.
Director Paul Feine also introduces you to several other Drug War victims, including a daughter who grew up without her father because mandatory federal sentencing rules forced him to serve 20 years in prison for a nonviolent drug crime.
America’s Longest War shines a light on the very real human costs of the War On Drugs and points to a viable alternative approach to drug policy.
