- August 26, 2013
The human cost of the War on Drugs is the subject of Reason.tv’s sobering new documentary, America’s Longest War. You are cordially invited to a special screening and panel discussion hosted by Reason Foundation and our friends at Show-Me Cannabis in Joplin on Monday, August 26:
Monday, August 26
6:00 p.m. Screening
7:15 p.m. Panel discussion
Christman's Event Center
501 S. Main Street, Joplin, MO 64801
This important feature-length film uses both 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. America’s Longest War chronicles how the drug war has escalated from a small domestic program mostly focused on treatment to the multi-billion dollar international war it is today. Please join us after the film for a panel discussion with Reason Foundation President David Nott, Show-Me Cannabis Executive Director John Payne, and Trish and Daryl Bertrand, a Springfield couple whose lives were turned upside down by the drug war (Reason covered the Bertrand's story in the July 2013 issue).
Feel free to share this invitation with your friends and encourage them to join you at the screening and panel discussion. With your support, we hope this film will help spur lasting change in America's misguided drug laws.
