Marina grew up in Chelsea, on the outskirts of Ann Arbor. She is currently pursuing higher education at Washtenaw Community College. Marina is an outspoken advocate for cannabis and hopes to end the stigma through educating the people around her. She started using cannabis due to a sports injury and since getting her Medical Card has improved the quality of her life in many aspects beyond just her injury. Marina hopes for a future where patients have access to safe medications that will benefit them to the highest potential. When she isn’t studying she’s most likely to be found playing soccer, painting with her friends, or going to plays. Marina especially enjoys cuddling with her puppies, Willie and Pippa, which she says is her second best medicine!
