Support the opening of cannabis dispensaries in Moose Jaw!!!

This petition had 435 supporters

The petition is designed to gather the signatures of those that are in support of the two legal cannabis dispensaries that are set to open July 1, 2018. The city of Moose Jaw is deciding whether to opt out of having the dispensaries as there has been some concerned opinions expressed.  If Moose Jaw opts out of the legal dispensaries that the Federal Government is allowing Moose Jaw to have then there will not be anywhere in the city for individuals to access their medication and either the business will go to Regina or encourage people to buy off the street. This petition is in SUPPORT of the dispensaries as to reduce harm for individuals using, provide new business opportunities, create jobs and follow in suit with our Federal Governments implementation. You know what they say; the squeaky wheel gets the grease! So start squeaking! Below is a copy of the January 30, 2018 news release requesting expression of public opinion.
