Doug McCallum has come out in opposition to cannabis retail locations in Surrey, two days before it becomes legal.

Two of the main points to legalizing cannabis was to ensure the product was safe for consumption. No cross contamination and an understanding where it’s origins are. The other is to regulate the sales so our youth do not have access in a similar manner to the sales of alcohol.

This is achieved by locating retail cannabis storefronts specified distances away from schools, parks and other locations where those under 19 may congregate. As well, to set distances between retail locations, to fit into the communities.

Doug McCallum’s opposition to retail cannabis stores, two days before the consumption of cannabis becomes legal in Canada, is astonishing. The only winners in his solution are those in organized crime and the losers are the youth we should be protecting and the adult consumers who are looking for a safe product.

The moral issue of cannabis was settled a few years ago when the federal government started the legalization process. Now Doug wants to impart his morals on you. Think about this October 20, when you head to the polls and who is really looking out for the public’s best interests.
