The Alberta Legalization of Cannabis Committee

This is  a group photo from a horse race that we sponsored one year after our first meeting.

“In 1978, we were invited by an automated program that sent out invitations for all registered societies in Alberta to have a horse race named after their organization. To the Stampede Board’s credit, they honoured their word when we accepted the invitation.” Wayne Cunneyworth, with the beard, is holding the right side of the horse blanket.

“We couldn’t believe that they would actually follow through, and they did. We made the news several times as I recall.”  Ben Kuypers (with sunglasses)

George Gilks, with the visor, is holding the left side of the blanket.
