The Dave Gram Show – April 23, 2018

On Monday’s Dave Gram show on WDEV: Karl Marx famously called religion “the opiate of the people.” With religious involvement in decline in America and opiate abuse and overdose deaths on the rise, is it time to turn Marx’s dictum on its head? Are we getting to the point where opiates are the religion of the people?

Our guests will include some folks who have found faith helpful in beating addiction, a mental health lawyer who is skeptical of religion’s role in this area and a neurologist who has studied how religion and drugs can light up the same parts of the human brain.
