As a resident of Sherbrooke Street one block from the RCH Auxiliary store, I am angry to hear a pot shop could be displacing the Royal Columbian Hospital Auxiliary thrift store.
This is across the street from a park, church and RCH and sends a deplorable message regarding health and wellness and community values.
Pot shops attract high-volume traffic and frequently see patrons “sparking up” outside on the street.
I’m not opposed to pot shops, but not in this location.
Very bad planning.
