Drug War, Teacher Strikes, & Lying Politicians (The Point)
Is America close to ending the war on drugs? What are the national implications of the Chicago Teachers strike? How much do politicians lie and is the media holding them accountable? Political comedian Jimmy Dore leads this weeks panel to discuss these issues and more with Diane Lefer (Activist, Author - 'Nobody Wakes Up Pretty'), Paul Chabot (Policy Consultant, Author - 'Eternal Battle Against Evil'), and Lynne Lyman (CA State Director - Drug Policy Alliance). Special thanks to Stephen Downing (LEAP representative) and Deborah Meier (Founder of the modern small schools movement) for sending in points.
