David Simon, creator of HBO’s The Wire, sat down with President Obama to discuss challenges law enforcement face and their consequences as a direct result of the War on Drugs.

What may come as a surprise, however, is how Obama agrees with nearly every point Simon brings up. In fact, Obama is a huge fan of the show.

Watch this incredibly powerful discussion. Now the only question: If President Obama agrees with so many points Simon makes, why has he not taken any action to help end the War on Drugs?
