Get the summary of Dr. Carl L. Hart's Drug Use for Grown-Ups.
Sample key takeaways:
1. Dr. Carl L. Hart had to confront the systematic inequality that drives drug charges in America when he volunteered to teach classes at a local prison, as his students were mostly Black men. He taught them that the “war on drugs” was really just a war on certain people.
2. The “war on drugs”’ was officially declared by President Richard Nixon in 1971, with the impossible goal of eradicating all recreational drug use. Instead, drug use has remained the same since 1981, with certain races and neighborhoods heavily targeted for “drug problems ”.
3. The recent opioid crisis has shifted the general population’s ideas on drug users, with calls for treatment and rehabilitation instead of mass incarceration. However, White Americans are the ones normally seen as primary opioid users.
