It's been about six months since we sat down with Maria McFarland Sánchez-Moreno, DPA’s executive director, and got to meet her on one of our first episodes of Drugs & Stuff, the Drug Policy Alliance's podcast. We thought now was a good time to catch up and hear the latest from her!
We had a lot to catch up on! Since then, Maria released a new book called, There Are No Dead Here: A Story of Murder and Denial in Colombia, and there has been a lot for her and DPA to respond to out of Washington – from Jeff Sessions's attacks on marijuana legalization to President Trump's calls for the death penalty for people who sell drugs, and more.
You can subscribe to Drugs & Stuff on Spotify, iHeartRadio, Stitcher, or wherever you get your podcasts. And please consider leaving us a review on iTunes. Stay classy!
