The Ann Arbor Hash Bash: 40 Years of Pro-marijuana Activism and Celebration

The Ann Arbor Hash Bash: 40 Years of Pro-marijuana Activism and Celebration

The Ann Arbor Hash Bash takes place this year on April 2, 2017. Started in 1971 to protest the imprisonment of activist and poet John Sinclair, who had been given a 10 year sentence in Michigan for possession of two marijuana joints, it was an instant success.

The Ann Arbor City Council passed a law dropping marijuana possession fines to only $5, and even nowadays, the fine in Ann Arbor for marijuana possession is only $25 and a misdemeanor. Sinclair subsequently gained release from prison 3 days after that inaugural Hash Bash, and it has been going strong ever since.

For the 40th anniversary, Sinclair is expected to read poetry in the evening at the Ann Arbor club The Blind Pig. Festivities include bands, artists, vendors, and the celebration will take place on Monroe Street in the afternoon.

Former New Mexico governor Bill Richardson is expected to make an appearance, as well. Richardson is a well known marijuana advocate. Expected crowd turnouts will be from 5,000 to 10,000 people.

Michigan voters passed an ordinance recently approving the use of medical marijuana dispensaries, and the Ann Arbor/Detroit areas have quite a few dispensaries in business currently. While marijuana use has still yet to gain mainstream approval, the fact that

these dispensaries exist and are allowed to do business is a direct result of events like the Ann Arbor Hash Bash, which promotes responsible marijuana use. It is a true Ann Arbor tradition. Here’s to 40 more years!

Stop What You Are Doing and Read: Marijuana Will Not Kill You

Stop What You Are Doing and Read:  Marijuana Will Not Kill You

In late January of 2007 I posted an article titled “Stop What you are Doing and Read: Marijuana Will Kill You.” This article can be found at Associated Content here, http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/138005/stop_what_you_are_doing_and_read_marijuana.html?cat=60.

Since I published my piece on the dangers of Marijuana I have had well over 2,000 individuals read the article. I can imagine many of these people do not smoke the dangerous drug known as Marijuana, but many do.

I know this from the many comments I received from those who spent the time to read the article. Many of these marijuana smokers made it clear that they had been smoking for years, and they considered themselves to be just fine. Many of these comments can be found below the original article. They can be very entertaining.

positive benefits of marijuana

The original article presents the case that Marijuana is an extremely dangerous drug, and it provides multiple examples of why this is arguably true. The one thing many of the readers failed to notice is that the article was not meant to be taken seriously. I was under the wrongful impression that maybe only one or two would mistakenly take the article to be a serious piece, but many did.

I wrongfully assumed that if a person had only half of a brain they would immediately discover the article to be a work of humor, one which looks into popular culture and the “anti marijuana movement” that has roots in the classic movie Reefer Madness and continues to this day.

I am in awe that after nearly one and a half years I am still receiving messages regarding this article. Ninety percent of these messages condemn me for my strong stance against Marijuana.

The remaining ten percent found the article humorous, as it was meant to be. A word of warning to fellow writers, be careful what you write, sometimes your work will go over the heads of many. Sometimes what you post will haunt you with the many hostile messages you will receive over a long period of time. And on a final note, no, marijuana will not kill you.

Users of marijuana have to find how long it stays in their system

Users of marijuana have to find how long it stays in their system

Every person in our time has a busy schedule and an array of expectations on the enhanced lifestyle. However, they get both favourable and unfavourable things in their routine life. For example, many adults nowadays take pleasure in the marijuana and get much difficulty with the drug test.

As a user of marijuana, you may think about how long marijuana stay in your system and the safest method to get rid of possibilities of an unfavourable result in the drug test. You have to identify and keep in mind that a large amount of marijuana stays in your body can be detected for over a week.

An exact detection time is based on how long you have used the marijuana and the type of test you take. Even though loads of marijuana detection tests are available at this time, the most common tests are urine tests, blood tests, hair tests and salvia tests. Every test is different in various aspects. For example, urine tests detect THC-COOH that is not at all psychoactive. The blood test detects the psychoactive version of THC.

As a beginner to top factors for finding the cannabis, you have to consider the body fat content, exercise, hydration, drug strength, metabolism and other factors like gender, age and height.

You may get an idea to flush out your system before the marijuana drug test with an objective to avoid the positive result. You have to quit this useless idea. This is because this approach has limited effectiveness at best particularly on short notice. This is advisable to avoid using marijuana when you expect to be tested within the upcoming month. You can properly moderate the strength of this drug when you have to use it. You can take note of easy to follow guidelines about how to deal with the drug test and make an informed decision without any delay.
