The dark areas in this map, created by Petersburg Police Chief Kelly Swihart and Mapping/GIS technician Molly Taiber, show areas where a commercially licensed marijuana establishment would likely be restricted from operating, according to the Alcohol Beverage Control (ABC) Board's adopted regulations. The distance of 500 feet from marijuana establishments must be measured by the shortest pedestrian route from the public entrance of the building in which the licensed premises would be located to the outer boundaries of a school, recreation or youth center (which includes playgrounds), or the main public entrance of the building in which religious services are regularly conducted, or a correctional facility. A "correctional facility", according to state statue is defined as "premises, or a portion of premises, used for the confinement of persons under official detention."
