Measure K was soundly defeated on the November ballot. Sausalito Locals and Marin Residents for Public Health Cannabis Policies, prevented the monopoly on the ballot from taking away local control and stopped Big Cannabis-friendly laws that couldn't be changed without another ballot initiative.

Michelle demolished the boundaries between her personal volunteer advocacy, and her work life, and organized SIX Events in the SF Bay Area, in the days
between Fentanyl Prevention & Awareness Day 8/21/22
and International Overdose Awareness Day 8/31/22.
The "Tools" around Fentanyl Awareness and Overdose Prevention
at her six Ace Hardware stores, helped to raising awareness,
reduce stigma, and trained Narcan-wielding first-responders in our community, including many of Michelle's team members at her Stan's Hardware stores.
Tweeting for Activists
#SorryNotSorry from Michelle: I want to share that this website is not the main part of my community activism, it is just a resource that I use when sending people to "more information" about the areas which I speak about. I spend much more time on speaking to people, than on keeping this website up-to-date, for which I apologize and ask your understanding! Speaking out is much more important to me than keeping my website updated, so that's why this remains a work-in-progress and is incomplete.😘
