ANN ARBOR, MI — A new “cannabus” tour is providing an opportunity to explore Ann Arbor’s history and dispensaries through a marijuana tour of the city.
MaryJane Tours, which launched on July 11, is a bus tour of the marijuana industry in Ann Arbor. During the tour, participants visit a growing house and a dispensary, as well as learn about how the industry has changed in the city and its ties to social activism.
The tour is a partnership between Bus A Move, a party bus company owned in part by Anthony Richmond, and Farm Assist Wellness, a farm-to-table-style dispensary that provides plants for people to grow at home.

Anthony Freed, owner of Farm Assist Wellness and co-creator of MaryJane Tours, said he talks about Hash Bash and John Sinclair, an activist who best known for being sentenced to 10 years in prison for possessing
