Nick has been active in Michigan’s cannabis policy reform efforts since 2009 when he joined the University of Michigan’s chapter of Students for Sensible Drug Policy (SSDP). Since 2011, Nick has been one of the chief organizers of the Ann Arbor Hash Bash along with several other integral Om employees. In 2015, Nick co-founded MI Legalize with dozens of other Michigan activists determined to bring cannabis legalization to Michigan. Once legalization was secured on the ballot, Nick worked as Michigan’s Field Manager for SSDP to focus on student involvement in GOTV activities. The Michigan Regulation & Taxation or Marihuana Act (MRTMA) passed in 2018. Since then, Nick has continued to advocate for advancing drug policies to further advance human rights and reverse the harms of the Drug War. An amateur guitarist in his free time, Nick can be found writing and performing music or otherwise drinking in as much live music as time will allow.
