Aug 28 2018, 4:36 pm

There’s no question that legalization will be coming into effect on October 17, but now Calgary is asking its citizens where a suitable location to consume that legal cannabis would be.

Four locations around the city have been proposed by the municipal government, and all four have been put forward for feedback in a two-week public input process.

The proposed locations were determined by a number of factors, many of which being put into place by the city to ensure that legal cannabis consumption does not occur within the vicinity of schools, playgrounds, off-leash areas, safety hazards, or residences, to name just a few points of the criteria.

“Since late 2016, the city has extensively researched and developed regulations around cannabis that are tailored to our diverse population,” said Matt Zabloski, lead for the city’s cannabis legalization project, in the release.

“Each of the regulations we’ve set is reflective of the concerns Calgarians expressed to us, and we are eager to hear citizen feedback about these potential designated cannabis consumption areas.”

The four locations are:

The green space at 11th Avenue SE between 11th Street and 12th Street in Inglewood

Input will be taken between August 27 and September 7.
