About Us

Welcome to “The House I Live In,” a beacon of thought-provoking content exploring the far-reaching impact of America’s war on drugs. Our platform serves as a crucial hub for educating, engaging, and inspiring action towards comprehensive drug policy reform.

Our Mission

At “The House I Live In,” we delve into the complex narrative of the war on drugs, revealing its deep-rooted implications on individuals and communities alike.

Directed by Eugene Jarecki, our namesake documentary critically examines the origins, policies, and consequences of a conflict that has spanned over four decades, leading to over 45 million arrests.

We highlight the disproportionate effects on marginalized communities, advocating for a shift from punitive measures to a more humane, public health-centered approach.

Our Approach

Our content spans a broad spectrum, including insightful analyses of films, TV shows, and streaming services, providing a comprehensive view of how media portrays and influences perceptions of drug policy and reform.

Through personal anecdotes, statistical analysis, and historical context, we offer a multifaceted perspective on the societal costs of the war on drugs and the urgent need for community action and legislative reform.

Our Call to Action

“The House I Live In” is more than just a documentary or a website; it’s a movement calling for informed community involvement and systemic change. We believe in the power of storytelling to illuminate the human cost of policies and to inspire a collective response.

Our platform encourages viewers to engage with the content, question the status quo, and advocate for policies that prioritize rehabilitation over punishment, recognizing drug addiction as a public health issue rather than a criminal one.
