The Exile Nation Project – Julie Holland, MD on the Drug Policy Reform movement – The Land of the Free punishes or imprisons more of its citizens than any other nation. This collection of testimonials from criminal offenders, family members, and experts on America’s criminal justice system puts a human face on the millions of Americans subjugated by the US Government’s 40 year, one trillion dollar social catastrophe: The War on Drugs; a failed policy underscored by fear, politics, racial prejudice and intolerance in a public atmosphere of “out of sight, out of mind.” This complete interview is #5 of 100 in The Exile Nation Project’s archive, which can be found on JULIE HOLLAND, MD From 1996 to 2005, Dr. Julie Holland ran the psychiatric emergency room at Bellevue Hospital in New York City.

She is regularly quoted as an authority on addiction, cannabis, MDMA, and drug policy in countless magazines, newspaper and websites including Harper’s, Slate, SF Chronicle, LA Times, & the Wall Street Journal.

In this excerpt, Dr. Holland describes how she first became involved in drug policy reform, and what has kept her active over the years.
