Like many of us who have gone through the life-changing experience of cancer, Sara re-evaluated what was important to her. The desire to bear witness and help others suffering through illness is what moved her to become an educator, advocate and activist for medical cannabis and is what drives her to lead the movement in normalizing cannabis use for health. Past experiences as a patient and her civil rights background made her passionate about educating people about cannabis thereby creating safe access and also inspired her to create a compassionate consulting training program for those in the medical cannabis industry and beyond. She is also a vice-chair of the San Francisco State Cannabis Task Force.
