Joining him will be growing expert and author Ed Rosenthal, considered by some the world’s leading expert on the cultivation of marijuana. His books have sold well more than a million copies and his most recent edition of Marijuana Grower’s Handbook has revolutionized the field. Ed is also on the faculty of Oaksterdam University, the leading trade school for the cannabis industry.
Also speaking will be National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML) founder and attorney Keith Stroup, and world-renowned cannabis geneticist DJ Short.
DJ Short has been breeding and perfecting marijuana strains for 40 years and has produced some of the most unique strains found anywhere on the planet. He’s been called the “Willy Wonka of Marijuana Breeding,” and first attended Hash Bash in 1973.“We’re confident we’ll easily exceed last year’s attendance,” said Hash Bash organizer and Michigan Moms United founder Charmie Gholson. “Clearly, we’re finally seeing an end to the longest running civil war our country has seen.”
“Last November, not only did Colorado and Washington state fully legalize marijuana, but here in Michigan, five cities easily passed marijuana reform measures,” Gholson said. “Even the legislators are coming out to speak out against this unjust war.”
Michigan House Rep. Jeff Irwin (D-Ann Arbor) and Ann Arbor City Council member Sabra Briere will address the crowd, as will statewide reform leaders and representatives from Americans for Safe Access (ASA), Michigan NORML, Michigan Moms United, Michigan HEMP, Students For Sensible Drug Policy (SSDP), the National Patients Rights Association, and the Ann Arbor Medical Cannabis Guild.
