Decriminalizing Drugs with Dr. Carl Hart
Factually! with Adam Conover #89 January 26, 2021
This week, Dr. Carl Hart – professor of neuroscience and psychology at Columbia – joins Adam to argue that we’ve been approaching recreational drugs all wrong. Together they discuss how we have historically exaggerated the harmful effects of drugs on the brain, how stigma and criminalization create greater adverse effects than the drugs themselves, and more. Dr. Hart’s new book, Drug Use for Grown Ups, is out now.
