Surely, you’ve got considered the massive amount of pharmaceuticals we deploy into our society. Perhaps you’ve got considered the prices as a tax payer or the associated fee increases in your insurance policy for health care. I bet you’ve got even thought in regards to the usage of psychiatric drugs in our schools, yes, I do know that may be a touchy subject, and I suppose diagnosing someone with ADHD, ADD, or bipolarism is one solution to get them onto the drugs in order that they behave in school, but is it really the moral thing to do? Let’s talk lets?
Interestingly enough, as that debate rages on, a recent one is coming forth on the illegal drug issues, and one PhD seems to think that if teens, especially African American teens are going to be using drugs within the inner cities anyway, that perhaps, they need a bit guidance in order that they do not fry their brains, cause health care issues, or die of cardiac arrest, stroke or something terrible like driving while under the influence and crashing their automobile, potentially killing innocent bystanders.
CSPAN – Harlem Book Fair hosted an interview televised on July 20, 2023 with ER Shipp of Morgan State University, a journalist in residence and Carl Hart PhD and creator of “High Price” explained to the audience that our illegal drugs are utilized by many but only 20% ever have any problem with it, and African American minorities, especially males are vastly more prone to are available in contact with law enforcement due racial profiling, which he explains is why there are more African-Americans in our prison population in a misrepresented skew.
He tells the audience that users can do drugs in the event that they take small doses in the appropriate way. I totally disagree with this whole premise, and with Carl Hart PhD, nevertheless it is worthy of debate, and it was interesting his view points. The book if you should buy it, which I don’t recommend, and am actually shocked he was in a position to discover a publisher – the book is titled;
“High Price: A Neuroscientist’s Journey of Self-Discovery That Challenges The whole lot You Know About Drugs and Society,” by Carl Hart PhD, HarperCollins Publishing, Recent York, NY, 2023, 357 pages, Electronic Version on Kindle ASIN: B009Nf75MY.
For the record I’d wish to add something to his debate and that’s; what are we doing as a society which appears to be pushing our young adults towards drug use, experimentation, and abuse while of their teens. Is not there a deeper fundamental issue at stake? Look I’m all about tough love and I do like excuses from drug addicts, still, perhaps we ought to listen to Carl’s side of the coin too. Think on this.
