This wasn’t just students. The event drew a lot of other people for reasons which should be obvious.
Hash Bash marijuana rally draws hundreds to University of Michigan Diag for smoke-in protest
Hundreds of protesters, pot tourists and marijuana enthusiasts were at the University of Michigan Diag Saturday afternoon for a smoke-in protest in conjunction with the 50th Hash Bash rally.
The annual smoke-in was a protest of marijuana laws, including the prohibition against smoking in public, according to Adam Brook, a past organizer of Hash Bash. Current organizers are holding the event virtually for the second year in a row due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Brook previously said he wouldn’t sit out another year and planned the smoke-in protest at the Diag. A large crowd in the hundreds, if not the thousands were on the Diag, and many others were walking between the Diag and downtown Ann Arbor dispensaries.
“This just shows that we still have a lot to fight for,” Brook said. “We moved the ball forward, but we still have a long way to go.”
