Catching up with Maria, DPA’s Executive Director

Derek Rosenfeld

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.

Listen to Maria's first episode on the show here and the newest episode here, or in the embedded version above.

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!

Derek Rosenfeld is the manager of social media and media relations for the Drug Policy Alliance, and the co-host of DPA's podcast, Drugs & Stuff.
