Dr. Randy Scharlach joins Ronan to chat about how we can heal on a societal, cultural and political level from one of the longest, deadliest and most expensive wars ever: the war on drugs. Our conversation today is about understanding the war on drugs, when it really started, and the effects of how it’s playing out today.  Dr. Randy is Field Trip Health's Medical Director, and is a graduate of UCLA Medical School and the Yale University Department of Therapeutic Radiology, where he gained expertise in the most advanced radiotherapeutic technologies available. Randy is also a psychedelic therapist and his approach to healing draws from both Eastern and Western Traditions.
