On today's Your Call, we’ll talk about the money behind the drug war.  The U.S. government spent over $15 billion dollars in 2010. So how is that money spent?  Reason Magazine reporter, Mike Riggs, argues that industries like beer and alcohol, private prisons, drug testing, and addiction recovery owe their profits to the war on drugs.  And their lobbyists spend heavily to maintain the status quo.  So what do you want to know about the money spent on the war on drugs?  Join us at 10am PST or leave a comment here.  It’s Your Call with Rose Aguilar and you.
