Our guest and first-time author, Kevin Hines, did survive and now has found a reason for living after years of suffering without help from ‘bipolar disorder with psychotic features’. In his book ‘Cracked, Not Broken’ Hines presents a vivid and moving memoir of how he descended into mental breakdown, fought to overcome demons, and made it his ‘life’s work to educate people all over this great country, and around the globe, to prevent suicide and understand mental illness.  

Kevin Hines has been featured in the critically acclaimed film “The Bridge,” (a 2006 Documentary film), Interviewed on Larry King Live, 20/20, Anderson Cooper 360, Good Morning America, and Ireland’s famed Tonight with Vincent Browne.

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.
