Viktor Bout gets 25 years

­Victor Bout has been sentenced to 25 years in prison by a Federal District court in Manhattan. Scott Horton with Harper’s Magazine will join the show to discuss this. Then, Michelle Alexander looks at our massive incarceration system, and the role race plays. Also, despite a weak economy; a number of patents expiring, Big Pharma is still making big bucks. We'll talk about how consumers are manipulated into always coming back for more medications. And then, don’t miss Happy Hour.
