How Pot (and other recreational drugs) Can Cure Racism

The Centre for the Study of Global Ethics is delighted to welcome Professor Carl Hart (Columbia University) speaking on the topic of How Pot (and other recreational drugs) Can Cure Racism as the public lecture for the Centre's annual conference.

Carl Hart is Professor of Psychology and Psychiatry at Columbia University and his current research investigates the behavioral and neuropharmacological effects of psychoactive drugs in human research participants. A major focus of this laboratory-based research is to understand factors that mediate drug self-administration behavior and to develop effective treatments.

Carl Hart's work has been featured in major publications including The New York Times and The Atlantic, and on major media outlets including HBO, MSNBC, and Fox News.
