  1. Which date is bet to go to complain about tell the smoke shops that have been popping up. In particular the 157 chambers street one next to 16 handles which its shed has become the new smoking weed spot. Children can’t sit there because you have people smoking weed. Also Mr Exotix location. It doesn’t make sense to have 6 smoke shops in. 2 block radius

    • CB1 has a form here to report unlicensed cannabis shops.

    • Just signed Botte’s liqueur license petition
      Planning to open late July or August

      Hours sounded tame, esp for a busy avenue:
      Weekdays 6am-11pm
      Weekends 7am-11pm

    • The whole city smells like skunk weed. If people choose to risk brain damage and pollute their own lungs with it, so be it. However, others shouldn’t be forced to inhale that pollution. What can be done? Do we need designated smoking areas of the city?
