"One way or the other, it doesn't bother me, I don't personally smoke the stuff, but on the other hand I know people that do, and they're going to get it anyways, so you might just let them do it legally and I don't see it as a menace to society." -Peter Hayden, Monroe
"I'm okay with it, I think there was one that was going to show up and then they stopped it. So, it doesn't bother me at all. I think it would bring a younger element to town." -Chase Hall, Belfast
"I am a child of the 60s so I don't have a real problem with pot, I actually think it's wonderful that it's legal recreationally, just like all the friends, and myself included, that like to have beer and wine, moderation is the important thing...The idea of having pot available recreationally in my town is just something we're going to have to get used to, and I think it's a good thing...There just needs to be some rules for public health." -Ned Lightner, Belfast
"I think they're fine, I think it's a good idea." -Karen Federle, Lincolnville
