On Saturday, April 2nd, the 45th annual Hash Bash got underway at high noon on the campus of the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. Thousands of cannabis fans descended upon the Diag of the U of M campus to hear top activists and pot celebrities including Tommy Chong, John Sinclair DJ Short, Kyle Kushman and HIGH TIMES editor-in-chief Dan Skye. Despite temperatures in the 30s and blustery snow, spirits remained strong (and high) as the activist community of the Great Lakes pushes for total adult-use legalization.
Later, the Hash Bash morphed into the Monroe Street Fair. It was the 15th year that this street festival led a celebration of cannabis featuring a music stage, vending and all kinds of stoner merriment.
