Refreshed, online, and free to the public, Ann Arbor, Michigan’s Hash Bash is celebrating its 50th birthday with a focus on the need for federal legalization and repairing the harms inflicted by the drug war.
“Hash Bash is committed to the advocacy of federal cannabis legalization and to giving cannabis users and patients a voice,” said the event’s MC, Anqunette Sarfoh, a medical marijuana patient and former Fox News anchor. It sounds like good time with a mission.
The Hash Bash Livestream (a choice organizers made based on the appearance of a COVID-19 “variant of concern” into Michigan) will last several hours and begin at the traditional time of High Noon (yuk-yuk) on Saturday, April 3rd. Several political leaders will speak, including Attorney General Dana Nessel, Congresswoman Debbie Dingell (D-MI), Senator Jeff Irwin (D-Ann Arbor); a variety show will follow.
Organizers say the event will focus on commemorating accomplishments major and minor and on the need for federal legalization and social justice.
