Voices Around Town

Do you think there are places where medical marijuana dispensaries should or should not be located?

Asked in Downtown Mountain View. Pictures and interviews by Emily Hamilton.

"I think within a mile of schools would be good. Just so (students) can't run over next door. They should maybe limit the number of (dispensaries)."

Michael Bisbiglia, San Leandro

"I don't think it matters. I think those places (schools, parks) have security. If people need marijuana for medical use, they should be able to get it."

Heather Emmert, Mountain View

"Probably a bar, park, school — it shouldn't be by any of those. And there shouldn't be too many."

Neal Novotny, Foster City

"I don't think it's sketchy. It's like a liquor store."

Ross Davison, Mountain View

"They shouldn't be around a school. It should be the same laws that apply to firearms. But we're wasting money on dealing with this."

Landon Becker, Mountain View
