Columbia psychology professor, who is a Black activist, admits to being a proud heroin addict
By Julio Severo
A Columbia University professor of psychology and neuroscience says he snorts heroin and takes other drugs to feel “refreshed” and “prepared to face another day.”
Carl Hart, 54, says that he does “recreational” psychoactive drugs to “study” their effects on humans. He is the chair of the prestigious Columbia University’s psych department.
“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 wrote.
Hart hopes that coming clean about his drug use will help lead to the decriminalization of illegal drugs.
For Hart, to oppose drug use makes racism strong. He even launched a book titled “Drug Use for Grown-ups: Chasing Liberty in the Land of Fear.”
“He draws on decades of research and his own personal experience to argue definitively that the criminalization and demonization of drug use — not drugs themselves — have been a tremendous scourge on America, not least in reinforcing this country’s enduring structural racism,” the publisher noted.
The psychology professor argued that “drugs can enrich and enhance our lives.”
The professor also admitted he has taken other drugs, including meth, and has rolled on MDMA — which is often referred to by its street names like Molly and ecstasy.
Hart described taking MDMA as an “intense feelings of pleasure, gratitude and energy.”
He even found pleasure in snorting a version of so-called bath salts, a synthetic cathinone that’s been linked to disturbing behavior from barking to breaking into homes. Hart’s assessment: “unequivocally wonderful.”
Hart has often defended black activism.
In June 2020, he wrote the article titled “When Justice for Black People Begins, the Looting Will Stop.” That is, he justified looting while the demands of black Marxist groups as Black Lives Matter (BLM) are not met.
In the article, Hart wrote that the “repulsive killings” of Breonna Taylor and George Floyd by the police “have forced many individuals and institutions to self-examine their roles in perpetuating centuries of anti-Black racism.”
Hart admitted that Floyd’s toxicology report revealed that, in his system, he had methamphetamine, fentanyl and tetrahydrocannabinol, the drug present in marijuana.
But, for Hart, drugs in Floyd were no problem, especially now that both Hart and BLM are using the Floyd case to advance their own ideologies, including Marxism and drug legalization.
Some would say that only a drug addict could support looting and other crimes committed by BLM. Hart is an evidence of this.
By this point, others would ask how such drug addict and black activist who supports looting was given the presidency of the psychology department in one of the most prestigious universities in the United States. Did he whine that he was a black deprived of opportunities and that no black had ever chaired such psychology department in Columbia? Did such ideological pressure lead his university to give him the position?
“Our founding document guarantees us at least three birthrights: life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness,” he said, thinking that drug use has everything to do with “pursuit of happiness.”
The document he mentioned was written by a U.S. population 98 percent Protestant who believed that without God and the Bible was impossible to have a healthy society. Yet, for Hart, it would be impossible to have a “healthy” society without drug use, black Marxist activism and psychology, which helps him to see as normal what is not normal.
Only in an unhealthy society could sick individuals admit that they are proud of their sins.
In Hart’s case, mix psychology, Marxism, drug use and black activism and the end result is moral and spiritual chaos. As the chair of the psychology department in Columbia, he is now in a position to promote his personal chaos to his students.
