Sample Insights:
1) Dr. Carl L. Hart had to confront the systematic inequality that drives drug charges in America when he volunteered to teach classes at a local prison, as his students were mostly black men. He taught them that the “war on drugs” was really just a war on certain people.
2) The “war on drugs”' was officially declared by President Richard Nixon in 1971, with the impossible goal of eradicating all recreational drug use. Instead, drug use has remained the same since 1981, with certain races and neighborhoods heavily targeted for “drug problems.”
