cannabis Preparations for the annual Hash Bash Ann Arbor, MI "scheduled this year for High Noon on Saturday, April 3" are proceeding without a hitch, despite Drug War saber-rattling out of the state capitol in Madison. The Hash Bash began in 1972 to celebrate the reduction of Michigan's cannabis-possession penalty from a felony to a misdemeanor carrying a maximum $25 fine.

The ceremonies will proceed as usual this year despite state government efforts to force Ann Arbor to conform with the statewide $100 standard petty-pot fine.

As usual, Hash Bash celebrants will assemble on the University of Michigan campus, where Tommy Chong and Jack Herer will be among this year's speakers. Organizer James Millard reports that he hasn't heard any discouraging words regarding the potential for increased crackdowns on attendees by authorities looking to enforce new penalty laws. He also believes that the current get-tough-on-pot publicity might attract even larger crowds to the event. A reporter for the Ann Arbor News tells us that the general attitude in town is relaxed, and that "people around here feel that the state shouldn't be stepping on our toes."

It seems like a great spring event to attend!
