Happy New Year 2021


The year of the Covid 19 coronavirus pandemic changes were many and the lockdowns in countries around the world. Add
Calgary 420 started 2020 with a 420 winter event with our long time awesome comedian friends gathered by Calgary’s own James Moore of the Comedy Monday Night fame. Add supporers such as Calgary 420 volunteers, Jeffrey Lundstrom owner of Skunk Funk Smoker’s Emporium also see the public Facebook group Saskatoon Cannabis Club and The Calgary Cannabis Club



2020 = the year of the selfish idiot.



Insisting on your rights without
acknowledging your responsibilities
isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.



The rest of the year followed with events being cancelled, lock downs at home and crowded hospitals with virus outbreaks shutting down visiting of dying loved ones. Work from home became the norm for many except essential workers/heroes in health care, transportation and many others. The oddest thing had to be panic buying of toilet paper.


    Condolences to all those that lost loved ones to the Covid 19 virus.


2020 will be one for the history books that does not need to be repeated.
