Many have heard about little Mykayla's story; however, not everyone agrees that it's appropriate for children to receive medical marijuana for their illnesses.
We talked with a handful of people and surprisingly no one here seemed to be outright against the idea of a doctor prescribing medical marijuana to a young patient with a serious illness.
"For a child to be treated with that, I'm not real comfortable with that, but if it's monitored and it's helping the child to eat and live, I think that would be fine," said Lisa Helvie, resident of Grand Junction.
Rosetta Bradfield, Grand Junction resident said, "How young do you have to be to feel better, I mean she's not going to be driving she's going to feel better, it's helping her and I think we just have so many issues about things that are different, even when they're helping us. "

We asked if you thought if it's appropriate for a seven year old to treat leukemia with medical marijuana.
Ceola McDonough said "I think that's between the doctor and the parent. Not the business of anyone else."
Nicholas Walker added, "Medical marijuana use is absolutely ok for a seven year old as long as it is prescribed by the doctor, and is administered in edible form so the child does not have to deal with the negative side effects of smoking it."
Another comment from Sarah Sale-Bennett said, "Props to her mom for thinking outside of the box. The cancer is bad enough but then having chemo on top of it.
Poor girl's body is going through so much stress and discomfort, why not try something unconventional?"
