End The War On Drugs

Dr. Carl Hart

Dr. Carl Hart says don’t blame drugs for society’s problems. Dr. Carl Hart grew up in a tough neighborhood in Miami. Carl tells Tom Ashbrook and us to end the war on drugs. Carl says we’ve misrepresented the effects of the drugs. He claims that we have confused effects of poverty and stifled ambition for drug effects.
