Organizers of the annual marijuana freedom festival in Amherst are celebrating its 20th anniversary with two days of events this year. The annual “Extravaganja’’ on the town common kicked off yesterday and carries on today with live music, vendors, and speakers. The event, meant to promote the legalization of marijuana, is sponsored by the Cannabis Reform Coalition at the University of Massachusetts. Organizers have been working with police and other town officials to keep this year’s event incident free, much like last year’s. Organizers said selling marijuana would not be tolerated and alcohol is prohibited. (AP)
