MooPig Brain Industries :: "Drugs"

"Be prepared to let evidence dictate what you think."

[Picture LINK] " ... I'm glad I have the life that I have, because I can think. I will be relevant in terms of the public discourse on an issue that I care about. ..."

Often times regular people find extraordinary lives to live. That is, Carl Hart rebounded from his hard knocks childhood to become a professor and sensational researcher.
" ... While Hart may have escaped the hood, it has never escaped his mind. Through his drug research, he has endeavored to address the issues facing marginalized black communities like his own — though his own understanding of those issues has evolved. "I thought that I was going to solve the problem of drug addiction," he told the New York Times. "But it turns out that drug addiction wasn't the biggest problem; the biggest problem, I found out, was actually drug policy." (Gabriel Grand. December 2, 2013. LINK) ... "
Read the Entire Article about Carl Hart's book High PriceHERE:

Meet Carl Hart, the Scientist Debunking America's Myths About Drugs - PolicyMic: "GG: Your findings went against what scientists were saying in the late '90s. Did you feel any pushback from the scientific community?

CH: That study ran in 2000, and it mostly went unnoticed! Back then, science was enamoured with the brain, but we didn't have any brain imaging in the study, so we were met with, "Who cares?" I did a subsequent study with methamphetamine addicts — same results. But they just ignored it! Only now has that study received some attention, in part because of my book."

Carl Hart's interview speaks much on enlightening young people on the use of drugs. Instead of setting them up to think "they have to be perfect, flawless, with no bad habits" which is ludicrous, rather teach them to know the truth about all these amply available drugs. "We teach young people to use seat belts when they drive, to use condoms when sexually active, so why don't we teach the truth about using drugs (paraphrased)?"

Carl Hart is imagining a culture that doesn't just spout off axioms, slogans, platitudes, and beatitudes, but actually goes further and describes the real reasons behind the rules. Our present societal norms create young people who like himself, Carl Hart:
"... I wasn't questioning things, and I wasn't learning how to think critically. I did what I was told to do in my environment. It may not have been consistent with the mainstream, but it was normal in my context.(ibid. Gabriel Grand.)..."
However, in his quest to think and be critical, Carl Hart manages to go beyond the typical slogans, Just Say No, and guide others to a more logical attitude toward drug use.
