Krystal Ball and Kyle Kulinski interview Dr. Carl Hart. Listen here.
This week’s conversation with Dr. Carl Hart gave us the chance to dig into the topics of the U.S.’s racist and dysfunctional criminal justice system, the importance of personal freedoms, and the struggle to legalize drug usage. In books like Drug Use for Grown-Ups, Hart has written about the double standard applied by wealthy Americans who advocate for the normalization of psychedelic usage and the incarceration of heroin users. He’s brought up the way that the prison-industrial complex destroys lives through drug charges, as well as the way that personal liberty becomes a relevant topic in our discussion of which drugs Americans are and aren’t permitted to do, and why.
