The issue of illegal drug use was a hot topic this election season with candidates for a range of local, state and federal offices pledging to tackle the problem once and for all. The debate is often fueled by stereotypes far removed from the reality of the day-to-day life of addicts and drug users. A new book out called The Corner: A Year in the Life an Inner City Neighborhood seeks to depict a piece of America that is often lost in the rhetoric of the war on drug.

Guests:

  • David Simon, the co-author of ??The Corner and the author of the best selling book, ??Homicide: A Year on the Killing Streets. He is also a writer and producer for the TV show "Homicide."
  • Deandre McCullough, one of the main characters of ??The Corner which is set in West Baltimore.
