After High Times put the kibosh on Cannabis Cup, it was a possibility that Hash Bash could be canceled, but now that we’re here, all we can say is


But it’s for the best. With school campuses closing, as well as hearing whispers of bigger companies sending people to work from home, it’s not a huge shocker that it’s being considered.

Right now, the report released by the Detroit Free Press states that they’re looking to move the historic event that celebrates our favorite green plant.

Nick Zettell, the lead organizer of the event, however, said he didn’t know who posted the following tweet, which has since been removed:

“In light of the news surrounding COVID-19, Hash Bash will be making proactive moves to help protect our participants & the greater overall interests of public health, by postponing to the fall.”

Zettell told the Free Press that someone got ahead of themselves and posted it, and the ruling hasn’t officially been made.

“We’re taking it very seriously right now and looking at all options and coordinating with the university to determine what their policy says and what developments might occur with public events on campus,” he said. “By week’s end, we’ll figure out what our best move is.”

There’s no word on the social media pages as of right now, but considering that even Coachella and SXSW postponed (Coachella is rescheduling to the Fall of 2020 with the same lineup), schools are closing their campuses or going online only (the University of Michigan where Hash Bash is held is also canceling classes), going to places with large gatherings seem to be more of a gamble than ever before. Considering the pandemic, everyone has to take this more seriously than they want.
In addition to that, there have been runs on Toilet Paper and Hand Sanitizer at grocery stores, and those who have Auto-Immune Diseases are putting people on notice of their withdrawals from germ-related situations. It will take time for the world to catch up on how to prevent this, but as of right now, it seems like most events are in the air until further notice.
