    I wish I would have noticed this last week. But after visiting the website, the no sales or consumption on site crap is in direct contrast to the original way of the farm.

    Yeah I miss that place. The pic of Tom and Rollie leaning on the tractor has been my avatar as long as I can remember. It may have always been. And I remember Doug quite well, he always had a variety he called 911 that was super good, and a great old haze variety as well. We would puff out of his corn cob pipe on the porch of the general store. I was pretty young still back then, so it is burned in my memory well.

    A good article with interesting pics written back in Oct 2018:

    It looks like a couple of guys (Gary Healy and Johnnie Curry) bought the property and are planning to start hosting events there as "The New Rainbow Farms" next year.

    The Farm was amazing! It is still to this date the most open cannabis festival i have ever been too! The sheer amount of top notch genetics was unbelievable!

    Sadly very few do and that's the way they like it. If Jennifer Granholm's Wikipedia mentioned the Rainbow Farm Siege as Janet Reno's mentions the Waco Siege, one would hope their political careers would have met the same fate. There is nothing worse than a politically climbing lawyer IMHO

    I visited Rainbow Farm in August of 2001, a week before the tragic end of the farm. I had heard that a festival "Roach Roast" was scheduled to
    happen in the early fall and went to scout it out prior to gathering some like minded folks to go to the festival with me. I got the opportunity to talk with both Tom and his life mate, Rollie that weekend. Tom took me on a tour of the acreage and told me of their plans for the future. About a week later both Tom and Rollie were dead, murdered by the State Police, led by the A.G. Jennifer M. Granholm (later elected to be Governor), and marksmen from the FBI. Unfortunately this happened only a few days before 9/11 and the news quickly forgot the story of Tom and Rollie. I attended a memorial service, put together by the stoner community a short time later and even went back to the farm about 10 years later with a friend. We were thinking of buying the farm and putting a museum there to celebrate Michigan's cannabis history. The farm had been divided up into small lots and the museum simply wasn't viable. Many of my newfound "cannabis family" return there annually to show our respects.
