Question of the week 1
"Yes, I think having marijuana in the house poses a bad influence, but really it's the choice and responsibility of the parent." - Robert Smith, Highlands Ranch, Colo.
Question of the week 2
"I voted no on Amendment 64 becasue I didn't think it was a good plan. As for the increased accessibility, I think children will be at some risk." - Rachel Chadwick, Littleton, Colo.
Question of the week 3
"Yes, increased accessibility in the home is only going to lead to more problems. If kids see parents doing recreational pot, then they'll think it's okay. The realm of parental influence is far greater than that of peer influence." - Gary Bowker, Littleton, Colo.
Question of the week 4
"Increased accessibility to anything is going to pose an increase in risk. I say, the responsibility is really up to the parent, just like it is for having alcohol in the house." - Grant Price, Englewood, Colo.

Amendment 64 permits adults age 21 or older to not only possess an ounce of marijuana for recreational use, but also to grow up to six plants in a private residence. We asked area residents if they think increased accessibility to marijuana in the home puts children and teens at risk for early use or abuse.
