e-2184 (Cannabis)

E-petition
Initiated by Davin Robitaille from Richmond, British Columbia

Original language of petition: English

Petition to the Government of Canada

Whereas:
  • Provincial and federal regulations require cannabis retailers to frost windows and doors up to five feet so that it’s impossible to see products from the street;
  • A cannabis retail store must be located in a permanent building or structure and be enclosed by floor-to-ceiling walls that are not transparent. Non-medical cannabis, cannabis accessories and transactions involving those products must not be visible from outside the store;
  • Non-medicinal cannabis retail stores should operate in a safe environment where they are not forced to have completely enclosed retail stores that have no visibility from the outside because it endangers our employees, customers and community and creates vulnerability and opportunity for criminals; and
  • This law is not imposed on liquor stores, gun stores and convenience stores.
We, the undersigned, citizens of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to allow non-medicinal cannabis retail stores to operate in a safe environment where they are not forced to have completely enclosed retail stores that have no visibility from the outside.
