STOP marijuana/ cannabis stores from operating next to Calgary schools 杜绝卡尔加里学校周围开设大麻店的请愿

From: Group of Concerned Parents from Sir Winston Churchill High School

An application to open a cannabis store at 5505 SHAGANAPPI TR NW has been submitted to Calgary city council. This location is unacceptable, since it is very close to Winston Churchill high school as well as 3 other schools, ALL WITHIN A CIRCLE OF RADIUS 250 METERS.  Additionally, Simon Fraser school is the site of Yufeng Chinese School on Saturdays, which means this area is always teeming with students of all ages and their parents.  Though increasing legalization of marijuana has contributed to the growing belief that marijuana is harmless, research documents the risks of its use by youth are grave. These effects include distorted perceptions, psychotic symptoms, difficulty with thinking and problem solving, disrupted learning and memory, and impaired reaction time, attention span, judgment, balance and coordination. It is totally inappropriate to have a cannabis store within easy walking distance for students of these 4 schools.  We, the undersigned, petition Calgary city council to immediately reject this cannabis store application. This e-petition is being undertaken to expedite the process of expressing our disapproval because the deadline for approval of this application is June 25 (as per our conversations with City Hall).

From: 卡尔加里温斯顿丘吉尔高中家长

在卡尔加里西北区有2000 多名学生的公立高中温斯顿丘吉尔高中附近开设大麻商店的申请已提交给卡尔加里市议会。地址是5505 SHAGANAPPI TR NW, 距离学校只有750米,走路七分钟的距离。丘吉尔高中的一些家长对此完全不可接受,因为它非常接近温斯顿丘吉尔高中以及另外3所学校,所有的学校都在这家申请店铺周围250米半径之内。此外,有数百名学生的育丰中文学校每周六在其中的西蒙弗雷泽学校开课,这意味着这个地区一直充满着各个年龄段的学生。尽管联邦层面上的大麻合法化促成了人们越来越相信大麻是无害的,但研究文件指出,青年使用大麻的风险是严重的。这些影响包括扭曲的认知,精神病症状,思维和解决问题的困难,学习和记忆障碍,反应时间,注意力跨度,判断力,平衡和协调能力受损….. 因此这4所学校的学生在步行距离内有一家大麻商店都是完全不合适的。
