On Current Practices:
The six Alberta 420 events in Calgary, Edmonton, Grand Prairie, Lethbridge, Medicine Hat and Red Deer for 2015 all had good weather and good number of attendees. Debbie and Keith Fagin said this year was a record number of people attending in Calgary since they stared organizing 420 events in Calgary in 2006, 2007 and 2008. Then 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013 Debbie and Keith attended Alberta 420 events in Edmonton at the Alberta legislature grounds. Keith was a speaker and both were volunteer organizers in 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 which was the last year Calgary 420 attended a 420 event in Edmonton.
2013 Bongs and Such rented a 48 person luxury coach to transport Calgary 420 volunteers and organizers to the Alberta legislature. 2013 was also the first year Bob Erb sponsored many drug policy reform organizations and some businesses for 420 events across Canada.
