Police close marijuana festival

BARABOO, Wisconsin -- Sheriff's deputies broke up the annual Weedstock Festival promoting the legalization of marijuana Friday, May 26, 2000, ordering several hundred people to leave and arresting 12. Sheriff Randy Stammen got a court order to close the music festival and campout, which was to end Monday. After annoucing the court order, authorities let people leave voluntarily for three hours. Event organizer Ben Masel and 11 people who refused to leave were arrested for contempt of court, Stammen said.
