It's Hash Bash Saturday in Ann Arbor today

Apr 5, 2014

ANN ARBOR – Thousands of people are expected to attend an annual pro-marijuana rally that's been held on the University of Michigan campus for more than 40 years.

The 43rd Hash Bash is to be held Saturday in Ann Arbor.

This year marks the return of longtime organizer Adam Brook, who was released from prison in October after serving a two-year sentence for a weapons violation. He told The Ann Arbor News for a story this week that the experience only served to reinvigorate him as a pot activist.

The university's Department of Public Safety allows the rally on free speech grounds, but authorities will arrest people caught with marijuana and other drugs on campus.
