Event Details

The human cost of the War on Drugs is the subject of Reason.tv’s new documentary, America’s Longest War. On September 24, you are invited to a special New York City screening of the film, which will be followed by a panel discussion about the War on Drugs at the French Institute/Alliance Française. Confirmed panelists include Ethan Nadelmann of the Drug Policy Alliance, John Tierney of the New York Times, Mary O'Grady of the Wall Street Journal, New York City Councilmember Melissa Mark-Viverito, and Reason.tv senior producer Paul Feine, who directed America’s Longest War.

Drinks @ 6:30. Screening @ 7:00. Panel discussion @ 8:15.

The evening will be hosted by our friends at the Smith Family Foundation. For tickets, please register using the link above, or RSVP to Mary Toledo at mary.toledo@reason.org or 310-391-2245 by Friday, September 20.

This important film uses archival footage and personal stories to demonstrate how the war on drugs has eviscerated civil liberties, strained the prison system to its breaking point, saddled Americans with billions in debt, and left more than 60,000 Mexicans dead. With your support, we hope America’s Longest War will help spur change in America’s misguided drug laws.
