This hour on focus, host Jim Meadows talks with Eugene Jarecki, writer, producer and director for the documentary “The House I Live In.” Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival, “The House I Live In” is filmed in more than 20 states and captures heart-wrenching stories from those on the front lines of the U.S.’s war on drugs — from the dealer to the grieving mother, the narcotics officer to the senator, the inmate to the federal judge — and offers a penetrating look at the profound human rights implications of America’s longest war.
