On this week’s show Denise and her guest, Dr. Carl Hart, an associate Professor of Psychology at Columbia University and Director of the Residential Studies and Methamphetamine Research Laboratories at the New York State Psychiatric Institute discuss the issue of “what came first?” and other topics related to Science, Addiction, and Society.
Dr. Hart is the author of “High Price: A Neuroscientist’s Journey of Self-Discovery That Challenges Everything You Know About Drugs and Society.” Listen to stories of his youth and education and how he was able to escape a life of crime and drugs and avoided becoming one of the crack addicts he now studies.
The discussion delves into different perspectives on US drug policies, laws, racism, politics, etc. Lots to think about. Do we really know the science and the facts?
