DPA Telephone Town Hall: Dr. Carl Hart On How Drug Education is Failing Our Kids

In this Drug Policy Alliance Telephone Town Hall, Dr. Carl Hart, Columbia University professor, best-selling author of High Price speaks directly to parents both as a neuroscientist and as the father of three black sons about how to mitigate the dangers of teen engagement with drugs. He shares frankly and honestly that while drug effects are actually predictable, contrary to mythology, how police treat young black people, is not. Dr. Hart also speaks about the drugs we prescribe our children, ending stigma in our communities, and debunking the myths that mislead drug policy reformers.
