From 1996 to 2005, Dr. Julie Holland ran the psychiatric emergency room at Bellevue Hospital in New York City. She is considered an expert on street drugs and intoxication states, and lectures widely on this topic.

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.

More than anything else, she is respected for her frankness, honesty, and compassion.
