Location matters, but I think what matters more is policing activity outside and around these shops. Keeping things clean, safe, orderly - would be ideal. (We'd love a place to get good quality CBD - available now at CVS however :) ).

The people of California decided and voted to make this is a legal business, Concord should do the same with minimal restrictions. Regarding locations of these businesses, simple economics will dictate that. No cannabis manufacturing or grow operations will be seeking a Downtown location or near a school, they simply wish to operate within the law.
