Photos from the 2017 Hash Bash

By  |  4 Comments

Went to Saturday’s Hash Bash on the Diag in Ann Arbor. It was my third Bash; for once, I got up close enough to get photos of some of the speakers. I also saw the dudebro-iest dudebro ever, but for some reason didn’t get a picture. There are always some real characters at the Hash Bash, along with the usual mix of activists, patients, working class folks, hippies and, yes, even a few college kids. And lots and lots of weed.

John Sinclair, 75. The first hash bash, in 1972, commemorated a Michigan Supreme Court decision that declared unconstitutional a law that was used ton convict Sinclair for possession of two joints. He had been sentenced to 10 years in prison. Hash Bash, April 1, Ann Arbor, Mich. | Jim McBee
