After 22 years on television, Fox 2 Detroit morning anchor Anqunette Jamison Sarfoh has announced plans to retire.

In a Facebook video post Tuesday morning, Sarfoh, best known as “Q” to Fox 2 watchers, said that she would leave the business and join a leadership role with MILegalize, in an effort to help legalize marijuana in Michigan.

Most recently, Sarfoh was on a leave of absence because of medical issues related to her multiple sclerosis.

“I loved my job but multiple sclerosis was making it harder and harder to do it,” she said in the video. “I spent my first year of having MS sicker than I have ever been in my entire life. And then I became a medical marijuana patient.”

Now, she says, she no longer takes the many medicines she once relied on, including Adderall, anti-nausea drugs, muscle relaxants and sleeping pills.

Michigan recently passed legislation to better regulate and make available medical marijuana to patients who need it, including, for the first time, edible forms of marijuana. But full legalization of cannabis in Michigan is nowhere in sight. There were three efforts to put a cannabis legalization question on the Nov. 8 ballot, but none of the backers were able to meet all signature and other legal requirements.

Sarfoh will be officially introduced as a member of the “MI Legalize 2018” movement during a fund-raiser Wednesday at Weber’s Inn Ann Arbor.
