Michael Diaz-Rivera left his career as an educator to be a cannabis entrepreneur with the hope that his worst days were behind him. No stranger to the struggle, born and raised on the south side of Colorado Springs he was incarcerated for possession of marijuana at the age of 19.
Kept out of the marijuana industry he focused on community, youth, and mentorship. With recent legislative changes, he has left the classroom for the cannabis community, hopeful that he'll be able to contribute to this burgeoning industry. As someone born and raised in Colorado and negatively impacted by the war on drugs, he is working to make sure that our most marginalized communities of color aren't forgotten!
A convicted felon for marijuana possession in Colorado he likes to use a Hill Harper quote as his daily mantra, “Once you have a felony conviction on your record, one of the most difficult things to do is break the cycle of recidivism." Michael has been doing just that and with the aid of Better Days Delivery, he is aiming to help others do that as well.
