Lansing’s mayor joins Tommy Chong and others at Ann Arbor’s Hash Bash
Itīs the first Saturday in April, Hash Bash in Ann Arbor, and at the University of Michigan the crowd is primed, lighting up in public without fear or harassment or arrest. The odor of burning pot accompanied by promarijuana signs, young and old wearing marijuana themed shirts.
This year’s Hash Bash included the traditional “smoke-in” protest and an extralong list of speakers, among them Lansing Mayor Virg Bernero. He was joined by poet/activist John Sinclair, whose arrest 44 years ago for possessing two joints initiated Hash Bash activism, and by stonercomic Tommy Chong, Michigan Rep. Jeff Irwin of Ann Arbor and others.
