It's not just Mendocino county that has people with wink-wink attitudes
towards weed, that train of thought is everywhere in California. The majority
of the people don't care and for that matter the cops don't really care (my friend was pulled over and the cop said it smells like weed, let me see it. My friend pulls his weed out and the cops remark that the weed is of low quality and there is higher quality out there. They then gave it back to him with a warning of not letting them smell it or see them smoking again, or else they would have to FINE them.)

I've even smoked with my friends mom, that's how accepted it is in San Diego. People smoke on the beach and nobody cares!

Weed is borderline acceptable in social circles. Some areas throw open their arms and ask for the joint, others will let people mind their own buisness and some will have a stick stuck up their ass about it. But the majority don't care!
Get over it!
Call me square and old-fashioned, but all I have to say to this post is:

OMG!!!!!

I will check into Cloverdale..I know that I would not be able to live in Lakeport or Clearlake area. I have always lived in the City. Of course I did not realize it was the city until my first visit with my sister. Being realistic I was looking about 2 hours outside of Lakeport and Clearlake area. I figure 2 to 3 hour drive is nothing compared to what we are doing now. Me and my sister were separated at birth--did not know she existed until she contacted me last April. 11 months apart. I figure after all this time we deserve to spend the rest of our lives closer. 2 tp 3 hours thats nothing. Thanks for your help

To answer the original question, I actually think Mendocino would be a good place to live. Another great location is Arcata/Eureka, which is another one that's infamous for it's "pot acceptance"... but that aside, it's really beautiful, affordable, people are friendly, and there should be some job opportunities. You might also look around Chico and Red Bluff, which are a bit more "woodsy", or the Lake Tahoe area. Good luck!

I realize this is an older thread, but I can never resist this topic:

You guys are discussing the fact that it's somewhat socially acceptable to smoke marijuana. This is a fact that I don't argue. However, it has nothing to do with NOT wanting to be in communities that produce this drug. I grew up in Mendocino County, and the culture that nurtures the illegal growth and processing of marijuana is dangerous, plain and simple. I have family members and ex-friends in the industry. There is a whole slew of types of crimes that are generated from this industry as it exists today, crimes which you may not find in areas where the drug is distributed, like where you live, but that are rampant where it is produced and processed. There are small operations and big ones. Many are operated by convicted criminals and gang members. Believe me, there is nothing family-friendly or comforting about having your neighbor having to sit outside all night in front of his fenced-in crop with a shotgun across his lap waiting for thieves.

in short, you have no idea what you're talking about. You have no idea what it's like to live in a community where this product is exported from. You think that because marijuana is mostly a tame drug, that the use of it isn't associated with violent crimes or whatever, that the culture of marijuana manufacture is the same. It isn't.

I support the legalization of marijuana, if mainly because it would wipe out the kind of operations which I've grown to hate, because they've done more to destroy the quality of life of where i grew up than anything else.

We just had a Dodge dealer near where I live go belly up .

I think a larger city such as Sacramento would probably be a good choice when it comes to finding a job.
