Subject : Oppose Cannabis store in Unit102/202 5728 University Blvd

reasons can be as the following but not limited: 

➢ Unpleasant odour/Second-hand smoke

➢ Existing easy accessible Cannabis stores and online order & delivery

➢ Negative impact to the business of surrounding stores

➢ Culture shock for Tourist/UBC international Students

➢ Criminal record and unnecessary trouble caused to many non-Canadian citizens in our neighbourhood (lose their opportunity of returning to Canada)

➢ Disincentivizing talents worldwide (professors, students, families) from attending UBC area if cannabis is not legal in their country. Harm both UBC and Canada’s long-term economy…
