Details

Join us at Solid State Books on Monday, February 19, 2024, at 7:00 PM for an engaging session of the Drugs Book Club, where we'll delve into the thought-provoking book "Drugs for Grown Ups: Chasing Liberty in the Land of Fear" by Dr. Carl L. Hart. As a Ziff Professor at Columbia University and a leading expert on the effects of recreational drugs, Dr. Hart challenges conventional perspectives, arguing that the greatest harm associated with drugs stems from their illegal status. Drawing on his own experiences, he advocates for a responsible and balanced approach to drug use, emphasizing the negative impact of criminalization on American society, particularly in perpetuating structural racism. This quarterly book club promises a stimulating discussion on a controversial yet important topic, exploring the potential for drugs to contribute positively to our lives when used responsibly. RSVP to be part of this vital conversation.
