Carl Hart is the Ziff Professor of Psychology in the Departments of Psychology and Psychiatry at Columbia University. Prof. Hart has published extensively in the area of neuropsychopharmacology and drug policy. He is an award-winning author; his most recent book is entitled, Drug Use for Grown-ups: Chasing Liberty in the Land of Fear. Prof. Hart has lectured around the world and has appeared on multiple national television and radio shows as well as podcasts. In 2016, the city of Miami issued a proclamation declaring February 1 “Dr. Carl Hart Day.”   

For this interview, we will be discussing his paper, “Exaggerating Harmful Drug Effects on the Brain Is Killing Black People”, in which he explains the mismanagement of scientific data and language used in research that, in part, lead to justification of police brutality. In this paper, Dr. Hart incorporates current events, shares his own experiences and offers solutions to treat this prevalent issue.
