The far-left has completely infiltrated American universities and are brainwashing our youth.
Carl Hart who is a professor of psychology and neuroscience at the University of Columbia has come out and said that he does heroin regularly.
Hart also said that the Biden administration should consider to make all drugs legal.
Well, maybe he should put down the heroin and start doing research of the number of deaths that is caused by heroin.
It costs over 75,000 to go to Columbia University and they literally allow their professors to go around promoting heroin like it’s beneficial to our bodies.
Columbia University professor Carl Hart used heroin every day.https://t.co/AHI7zlfBk6

The New York Post covered the bizarre story:
Carl Hart is a Columbia University professor of psychology and neuroscience. He chairs the psych department and has a fondness for heroin – not only as a subject of scholarly pursuit but also as a substance for personal use.
At 54, the married father of three has snorted small amounts of heroin for as many as 10 days in a row and enjoyed it mightily – even if, as he recalls in his new book “Drug Use for Grown-ups: Chasing Liberty in the Land of Fear” (Penguin Press), he’s experienced mild withdrawal symptoms “12 to 16 hours after the last dose.”
But, as Hart sees it, the discomfort is a worthwhile trade-off.
“There aren’t many things in life that I enjoy more than a few lines by the fireplace at the end of the day,” he writes, pointing out that the experience leaves him “refreshed” and “prepared to face another day.”
His reason for coming clean about doing opiates and the like is to advocate for decriminalizing possession of recreational drugs. The book makes the case “that the demonization of drug use – not drugs themselves – [has] been a tremendous scourge on America, not least in reinforcing this country’s enduring structural racism,” according to the publisher.
Speaking as an alum, this man is a disgrace to @Columbia. He has no place teaching or chairing a dept while recklessly promoting heroin. 100,000s of people have died/had their lives ruined by opiate abuse. Simply disgusting.

Business Insider added these details to the story:
Carl Hart says he first tried heroin six or seven years ago.
At the time, he was already a tenured professor at Columbia University and “well over 40,” according to his new book, “Drug Use for Grown Ups.”
Hart, a psychology professor and neuroscience expert, had already worked (legally) with drugs including marijuana, cocaine, and heroin for more than 25 years, studying drug users and seeking to answer questions about the threats drugs pose to mental and physical health.
For most of that time, Hart was set on proving one point: Drugs are bad. Now, he just wishes he could do them legally and that you could too.
“My heroin use is as recreational as my alcohol use,” Hart wrote in his book. “Like vacation, sex, and the arts, heroin is one of the tools that I use to maintain my work-life balance.”
This makes me feel pretty good about my decision to decline my acceptance to Columbia to go to community college instead. I can say with about 85% confidence none of my professors were on heroin. https://t.co/WRqBN6n2PZ
