Quotes

" I know they've contained the cases here in the U S Apparently it's easy to not get sick. Just wash your hands, stay sanitized and there shouldn't be a big outbreak. So i'm not worried about it and I'm hoping they could do more to help the people who are affected in Africa" said flint resident Tim Kennedy
"They all coming in, swiping their cards and we just take and take and take, that's all it was. They buy $5 worth of stuff, we are taking an extra $5. If they're not looking, they got to rush to the bus, swipe it, hit it hard, $15, $20. We were just hitting them up, all the customers. Everyone who works there knows the policy" he said

"It is a huge concern for us because it is one more way for people to get high potentially harm themselves or someone else. Then you have these manufacturers that are making profits off of this stuff and they don't really care about the side effects or the cause and effects of what this stuff does to people" said Richard
