If you are going to look at Cortez, I'd look into Delores too. It had a nice museum and I saw a lot of live stock around there (sheep included). I have friends who have a pretty little place with horses by Rye, it's beautiful. They claim to have gotten a super good deal on the place and I noticed sheep there too. That's between Canon City and Trinidad.

Monte Vista is also a nice little town where you can raise live-stock - just don't end up in some remote part of the San Luis Valley with no water.


They do not do it anymore. She/he moved to San Francisco. Trinidad is trying and will hopefully recapture it's wild western history. Black Jack Saloon is having all kinds of events. The town is neat and has tons of history well I guess you've guessed I love Trinidad and I've been all over Colorado, New Mexico and lived in other states too.
You will find the prices of land very reasonable in Trinidad. I have a cattle ranch I will or am going to try and sell and will probably move to the Santa Fe Trail subdivision on the Raton pass. They are 40 acres each and I saw a family with llamas, another family with sheep and of course it is open range in the area. Cost I felt was quite reasonable. Now you can even go down route 12 and get beautiful land even cheaper. I prefer Trinidad to Canon City. I also like the San Luis Valley but would be scared if you needed help quick.

Hi, I live in Tennessee but really hate it and my grandchildren are here and that's is what holding me back from moving to Colorado where from what I have read is full of legal med. mary jane, which I'm on disability and can't do much with my grandkids anyway so they never come around and my daughter never calls or comes around so I figured they have their own life and I have my and I'm tired of taking man made pain pills and I love my pot and would like to be able to get it without having to worry about the cops taking it away. What towns would be the best to live in with less than 50,000 people?

Good heavens, that was a long sentence!
Most "towns" in Colorado are well under 50,000 people. What are the other requirements, like budget, transport, health facilities, you know, that stuff?

keep an eye on this discussion thread. others are trying to figure out the same thing.

Where to move in Colorado for jobs/friendly marijuana laws

towns with mmj dispensaries are the most likely to look at. altitude, micro-climate, housing, grocery stores, healthcare facilities are other criteria. find each town's website and online newspapers to learn more about it.

A couple of former co-workers have MMJ cards and the concentration of dispensaries is downtown Denver and Boulder. You might try Longmont and then you could easily buy in Boulder, Denver, or even Fort Collins. All of those area are MJ friendly. I would suggest anything north of Denver between Fort Collins and check Longmont people are nicer there than Denver smaller city used to be farms and ranches.
I texted my buddy and he told me to tell you check this site https://legalmarijuanadispensary.com/

The politicaly correct procedure is to drive to the nearest coffee shop or service station (shouldn't be more than 50-75 miles tops), buy a cup of coffee out of courtesy, and use their rest room. Shame on you Jazz.

Ha. I took my sister out to southwest Colorado (she'd barely ever been out of New Jersey) and she peed in the great outdoors for the first time at age 42. Needed instruction, too.

For you Ed Abbey fans check out Tom Russell's tribute below.


YouTube - The Ballad of Edward Abbey



Most blind fans of Abbey don't like to admit that fact. But, the circumstantial evidence is heavy.

Five marriages.

Esophageal varices, which are just 100 percent caused by alcoholic drinking.

Pancreatitis before that, preliminarily diagnosed as pancreatic cancer, often caused by alcoholic drinking.

Failure to stay quit on drinking in the face of dangerous bleeding from said varices.

===

That said, Abbey was also not an environmentalist. (Which he said, himself. He said he didn't want to be called one.)

Beyond the antics mentioned above, there's others, like kicking a tire off the rim of the Grand Canyon.

He was above all, temperamentally and philosophically, an anarchist, which he did stress about himself. And, his alcoholic-level drinking went with that.
