Jessica Laycock

Our guest, Jessica Laycock, is a District woman firing a legal challenge to the ambiguous marijuana laws in the nation’s capital. As of Feb. 26, 2015 marijuana was made legal in D.C.—sort of. On April 20, an annual day of pro-pot advocacy, Laycock and seven other protesters were arrested during a demonstration in which activists gave joints to congressional staffers to push for marijuana-friendly federal laws.

Possession of marijuana is illegal on federal land, but protesters say they strategically held the event on District land, where possession of up to two ounces of pot is legal and small amounts can be given away free. The circumstances of her case highlight the clash between federal pot laws and looser local regulations in a city where small amounts of marijuana are allowed.

A New Era is Unfolding . . .

Student PictureDear Maria Sanchez Show fans.

I apologize for my absence from this website in the past several months. We’ve kept our blog very much alive and well and you can click on it to the right of the post to see what you may have missed there at TheMariaSanchezShow.com

However, I have begun a new journey that is a dream revisited and I wanted to share with you my next venture in life.

24 years ago I started my Masters degree in between child 3 and 4. A subsequent move back to the Los Angeles area from Portland, OR, a divorce and a career in radio postponed my dream. I applied for and I was accepted to Pepperdine University in their Graduate School of Education & Psychology to study for my Masters degree in Clinical Psychology.

My first semesters began in April of this year and continued until the end of July. My 3rd semester begins next week. I’m taking 5 classes. I just accepted the position of Public Relations Graduate Assistant for the Marketing Department of the Graduate School of Education & Psychology and those duties begin next week as well.

I cannot tell you how exciting it is to be a student once again. How much I adore being back in the classroom, surrounded by intelligent and curious minds, being taught by amazing faculty and learning about the field of psychology and all that it has to offer.

My intention is to graduate and to sit for the Marriage, Family, Therapy license (MFT) and perhaps thereafter the more recent discipline of the Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC).

Unlike a lot of fields in today’s economy, psychology doesn’t discriminate regarding age. In fact, wisdom appears to be celebrated and thus the life that I have lived thus far, the experiences that I have had, the successes and the failures that I have been involved in and finally, the education and training that I am receiving all appear to be poised to help me to be of service to those in need.

As one of my professors so poignantly stated, psychology and therapy can help alleviate suffering, and that’s what I would like to do until I draw my last breath on this planet.

I see no need to retire. I’ve lived a wonderful life thus far, traveled to amazing places on this earth, volunteered my time, treasure and talent to some fantastic organizations and now I’d like to focus on the individual who is looking to seek some relief or a solution or fix a challenge. I will do my very best to keep my posts active as I continue along this journey as a student.

Thank you for taking the time to read what I have written.

Warmly,

Maria
