Roving Camera 12-13-18: What effect do you think marijuana shops will have on the city?

I don’t think it’s good. There are so many drugs here already and there’s not enough help for people. — Michell Pearsall, Student, Dorchester
They’ll make things worse. There’s too many people on marijuana already. — Alice Myers, Self-employed, South End
I think it will have a positive impact on the economy. It could be good for the city. — Dennis Basell, Disabled, Mattapan
I don’t know if they’ll change anything. It existed before. Maybe there won’t be so many young people ending up in jail. — June Reid, Chef, Dorchester
I think they’ll have a negative effect unless they hire people from the community to work in the shops. It would be nice for people who’ve been arrested to have a chance. — Tyree “Uptown” Browne, Cable Show Host, Roxbury
Not a positive one. I don’t think it’s as bad as heroin or crack cocaine, but it doesn’t help our kids get through school. — Nadine Williams, Preschool Teacher, Dorchester
