Roving Camera 4-4-19: Would you be concerned about a marijuana shop opening in your neighborhood?

I wouldn’t. I smoke marijuana. — Sheila Jones, Medical Assistant, Dorchester
Times have changed. I think it would be ok. — Mary, Retired, Roxbury
No. It would stop people from getting it from unsafe areas where they could be harmed. — Danielle, Grad Student, Roxbury
We need one. I have chronic pain, but can’t afford my medications. Marijuana stops my pain. — Bernard Goode, Painter, Boston
Yes and no. For the most part, I wouldn’t mind it. I feel as if now, there’s enough drugs out there. But for medical purposes, I believe it can help people. — Phillip Franklin, Plumber, Jamaica Plain
I would. Probably because I don’t think we could control the theft. There would be too much money in the store. They would have to have police presence. — Deborah, Office Manager, Dorchester
