May Day is Jay Day

Happy mayday. In the early eighties, when I was going to Pratt in Brooklyn, thousands of us used to gather in Washington Square Park on May 1st and, with a police escort, walk up 5th avenue to Central Park smoking joints passed out free by the Yippies. One year my roommate and I went down to the smokein across from the Whitehouse.

I wonder if they still have smokeins?
