Dr Oz: Treating War On Drugs
Dr Oz shared that he had always thought about the war on drugs as a “criminal problem” when maybe he should have instead thought of it as a “medical problem.” Dr Oz welcomed former New Jersey police detective Jack Cole, who spent 14 years undercover in narcotics. He would arrest heroin users and put them in jail, and shared that, in his opinion, it didn’t seem to do much good at all. Jack said it seems to be the wrong way to go about it, because imprisoning them only hinders their ability to move on in life and get a job down the road. It doesn’t actually treat the real problem, which is addiction.
