Ann Arbor's 50th Hash Bash coming this weekend
Thousands of people are expected to gather on the University of Michigan’s Diag to show their support for reforming marijuana laws.
Jamie Lowell is the Director of Advocacy and Social Equity for the Botanical Company, and one of Hash Bash’s organizers. He says Michigan has made a lot of progress in recent years, but there’s still plenty of work left to do.
“Even though we have legalization now, why would we do the Hash Bash? It’s because we don’t have true legalization yet. We still have a long way to go, and that’s what we’re here to fight for and show people."
This will be the first Hash Bash held in-person since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.
