UPDATE Sunday morning
While the UMass Amherst Cannabis Reform Coalition is always good about cleaning up after the pot festival -- way more so than the average Amherst Party House revelers -- I'm still concerned about the damage inflicted on the historic Amherst Town Common.
Wet conditions and heavy equipment do not mix
If the CRC can pay for trash removal why not for reseeding the common?
Mud Wresting anyone?
Must have been something I ate
How brown was my Valley
UPDATE 5:30 PM (event day)
5:10 PM Triangle and North Pleasant near Bertucci's
Off to jail
The downtown is more crowded now than it was for the Block Party last fall when the roads were shut off to vehicular traffic for the event.
Dispatch received an "erratic operator" report from another driver for a car "all over the road" and "throwing beer bottles out the window," all within spitting distance of our jam packed town center.
He was pulled over, a Field Sobriety Test carefully administered, and he flunked. His hands were then cuffed behind his back, his fancy car towed, and he will spend the rest of the night in jail.
Although in this particular case, the product they are most interested in consuming is still illegal.
