At that time, however, I did not subscribe to the argument that there were legitimate medical uses for cannabis. How things have changed.
The Tiny Expo is a gem of an indie arts and crafts fair for vendors with original and unexpected products that make wonderful gifts but may not be an obvious fit for Ann Arbor’s mainstream art fairs.
