Dr. Gabor Mate, author of many books on stress and addiction, speaks at the International Drug Policy Reform Conference to the idea that incarceration creates an atmosphere of stress, and stress is the toxic root that can lead to addiction.

Dr. Gabor Mate has been focusing on harm reduction for many years and speaks about the importance of drug policy reform, for the individual and for society.

Criminalizing drug use can create an addition in large part because the very deterrent societies rely on to keep drugs out of it is the same factor that encourages drug use and abuse.

Dr. Gabor Mate will return to Los Angeles November 30 for a KPFK fundraising event.
