Does former ONDCP advisor Calvina Fay run most of the groups supporting Citizens Protecting Michigan's Kids?
It looks like a large portion of the groups on the home page of "Citizens Protecting Michigan's Children" ( www.nopotshops.com ) are only divisions of the Drug Free America Foundation, which is run by former ONDCP advisor Calvina Fay:

The following groups are sending the wrong message to our children by breaking federal law. They are 501(c)3 education organizations that receive grants from the government and can receive tax-deductible donations under the regulations of the IRS and are not allowed to directly participate with groups that are trying to influence political elections, such as "Citizens Protecting Michigan's Kids."

Yes, Calvina Fay is a former ONDCP advisor who runs most of those groups supporting the group so-called Citizens Protecting Michigan's Kids. She is also staunch opponent of regulating the medical marijuana industry. Despite putting out rhetoric of wanting to protecting the children and our communities, Calvina Fay strongly favors policies that keep criminal organizations in control of the marijuana market. According to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health, nearly a million kids a year sell illicit drugs with marijuana being by far the most commonly sold to the public.
