REDMOND, Ore. (AP) - Give them the chance, and teenagers will ask about the future of their city, bike safety, transit improvements friendly to skateboarders and legal pot.

Those were among the questions posed by 50 high school students to two Redmond City Council candidates and mayor George Endicott.

The Bulletin of Bend reports (http://bit.ly/1yYmyUX ) the candidates were hopeful about Redmond’s future but divided on the question of legal marijuana.

Candidates said a forthcoming Oregon State University-Cascades campus and declining crime is a good marker for the city. Endicott says he opposes the federal marijuana ban, but doesn’t want to run afoul of federal law by enacting state legalization.

The students also quizzed candidates on homelessness, public art and affordable housing.
