New Survey on The Box!

The Box, our beloved smoking lounge, has been closed since March 17th, 2020. It has been a long couple of years since we have been able to host our community in our safe inhalation lounge and we haven’t been the same without it.

We are very excited to be working with Marilou Gagnon of the Canadian Institute of Substance Use.  VCBC is collaborating with UVic researcher Marilou Gagnon to study your experience using the Box and how the temporary closure of the Box is affecting you. If you are a VCBC member who smokes cannabis and used the Box before it closed, you are eligible to participate.

You can complete in-person at VCBC or online here:

You can also complete the survey in-person at VCBC

The survey takes 15-20 minutes to complete. You will have a chance to enter a draw for $25 VCBC gift card or cash prize.
