The documentary The House I live In showed footage of politicians speaking in favor of harsher drug legislation, even though evidence suggests that harsh laws don't help the problem. Why are politicians supporting laws that don't work? What economic factors are at play in our system of mass incarceration? Consider the scene where Dr. Gabor Mate, the addiction expert, argues that maybe these policies are working after all, but their goals are different than the goals that they state publicly. What is your reaction to that argument?

The response (the answer to the discussion questions) should be a minimum of 250 words.
