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.

Dr. Hart’s new book, Drug Use for Grown Ups, is out now.
