Tell us what you think

CLOSED: This discussion has concluded.

I am in favour of this business. Local users will no longer need to drive to Lethbridge. This will serve a community need. Coaldale residents give Lethbridge enough of money as it is. Very forward thinking form Council about time. Also this company we hope hires locally.

Herve almost 2 years ago

No, I do not support having a cannabis shop located in my town.

Colleen almost 2 years ago

YES! We fully support this application. This town could use more diverse retail options.

While many may be wary of the influence of marijuana legalization.... it’s important to remember it's not all negative. This has the potential to stimulate our small-town economy, provide legal cannabis access to locals, and keep spending local to Coaldale.

Start listening to the voices of your residents.......It’s time to be more progressive and open-minded.

amberjordan almost 2 years ago

We need more businesses in town. The town should do everything they can to allow more businesses to call Coaldale home.

Just because something is legal does not mean it is good. Please read: "Adverse Health Effects of Marijuana Use" published in the New England Journal of Medicine, 2014,

Hope this beta test works out, what a great way to communicate in these times.
Cannabis retail is a good idea, it’s legal and will support businesses and families.
With the current travel restrictions, it may be the only way we can take a “trip”! 😉

RD almost 2 years ago

I totally support this and believe it is about time the council starts listening to its people! This should have been done already!

Tcsak almost 2 years ago

I support this 100%

Janne almost 2 years ago

Absolutely. These businesses are no different then liquor stores now and our town has more than enough of those. Why not benefit from having new businesses in town.

Michele almost 2 years ago

I think it’s about time we have this in Coaldale, we shouldn’t be turning away legitimate businesses that want to be in our town.

skluss almost 2 years ago

I fully support this, Coaldale should not miss out on a potential revenue stream. Users of this are already going to Lethbridge, so why not allow them to spend their money here.

Bmaceach almost 2 years ago

I support this application. This would be a good business decision/revenue stream for Coaldale.

hnsaunde almost 2 years ago

Yes yes yes. Why should Coaldale miss out on a legitimate revenue stream based on some individuals personal views on cannabis. I don’t drink alcohol but I would never suggest getting rid of the multiple liquor stores we have.

KMcGee almost 2 years ago

I won’t be customer but if it’s legal then why is the town missing out on another revenue source.

Rm almost 2 years ago

I think a new business sounds good, and that is a good location for it.

AmandaDraper almost 2 years ago

Coaldale needs new businesses and although it is not one I will utilize, it is a legal business and should be allowed to open doors in our town. I believe the “religious” members of our community keep things out they don’t personally believe in (like VLT machines) to the detriment & prosperity of our community. Religious beliefs should have no place in our business decisions.
