2015 Hash Bash

. April 1, 2015.

DUDE, Hash Bash 2015! Inspired by the wrongly imprisoned Godfather of Pot, John Sinclair, this yearly celebration of herb continues in its 44th year. Times have changed since Sinclair stood trial; Ann Arbor is now pretty “cool” when it comes to marijuana use—there are a handful of dispensaries, and instead of jail time, personal-use possession gets you a monetary slap on the wrist (as long as it isn’t on U-M property). On this day, Hash Bash 2015, from the Diag to Monroe Street, smoke will pour over the land like an English fog over Aberdeen. Activists will once again take to the podium for legalization speeches. Art and merchandise vendors will sell weed-inspired crafts. And scores of marijuana enthusiasts will kumbaya through the crowds with guitars and drum circles. John Sinclair and Tommy Chong will be up in smoke, in person, on the Diag at high noon.

Hash Bash: 10am-6:30pm. Saturday, April 4. After party at the Blind Pig, 208 S. 1st St., 8:30pm-2am. Free.
