Dr. Carl Hart, associate professor of psychology and psychiatry at Columbia University, joins us to talk about his alternative approach to combating opioid addiction, one that includes legalizing and regulating all drugs. He argues that policy has been made based on anecdote and emotion, rather than scientific fact.

He explores this alternative approach in his 2014 book “High Price: A Neuroscientist’s Journey of Self-Discovery That Challenges Everything You Know About Drugs and Society,” and he gave a TEDMED Talk on the topic that same year.
