Actually pretty common throughout Craigslist. You'll see similar ads in the personals section of CL throughout the country. Just search "420 friendly", you'll find 'em. Anybody who wants to smoke .... does, their state laws don't stop them.

Humorous but also quite real.

Here's a story on one such child. IIRC I linked to this article before, when it was first published in the Gazette. Here's the video with her story.

I may be one of them. Maybe some dips***t pothead will buy my house--cash up front, of course--if they are so damned obsessed with being somewhere that makes it easy for them to get high. Oh, wait a minute, though. In my area, most of the potheads will be on public welfare because they won't be able to pass the drug test required to secure almost any of the few decent-paying jobs in the area.
You're hilarious. ... already living with alcoholic neighbors who have more wrecks, commit more acts of domestic violence, kill more people with cars and guns than other people, and pot makes people have fewer wrecks, commit fewer acts of domestic violence and kill fewer people with cars and guns than other people - yes, that's right, even better numbers than completely sober people.

And you're leaving because of pot heads coming in? Wonderful! Cause I'm moving in, I'm sick to death of the only legal recreational drug being that monster alchohol. I guarantee you that what's going to make all the laws against pot around the country fall like dominos will be the statistical drops in murders, domestic abuse, public acts of violence, sexual crimes, and much, much more.

This won't get everyone to quit drinking alcohol, but it's going to reduce the numbers, and that alone will improve statistics. And those statistics will be BEAUTIFUL. So glad you're gone. And so sad for you, a few short years, your neighbors will be pot heads no matter where you live. Why do I suddenly hear happy band music?? Must be the bud. Good stuff. Oh and as for jobs? I've been at mine for 13 years and I'm bringing it with me. Thank you. Thank you so much for leaving before I arrive.

You forgot about coffee/caffeine, which is also legal!

Just like the desire to import millions of illegal unskilled mexicans on the part of the left, it is seeking out the lowest common denominator rather than raising the bar.

It would not surprise me to see the radical Gov. hickenpooper try to push through a law claiming pot heads and other drug addicts to be a "discriminated class".
I have a question for you, wanneroo: If someone is an alcoholic, are they part of a Federally protected class?

The answer is instructive.

I'm sixty so I'm assuming your in your eighties... honey, if you think everyone who smokes pot is broke and won't work, lol it's just your age. You've been out of the loop I guess. You'd be surprised how many of us are really productive citizens. Also, it sounds like you might be listening to fox. That's a satirical station. It's not really news. lololol

Some people just choose to paint a whole demographic with stereotypes rather than looking at the issue in a logical manner.

This guy would obey the government and follow them blindly if they outlawed sugar, and told him sugar-heads were lazy.

Your post say's you are bringing your job with you, so I assume you are relocating here, if so, welcome, we need more people like you.

No I'm half your age honey.

I'm sure it was grand back in the olden days following the grateful dead around in the old VW van and inhaling mary jane until your lungs turned black, but the rest of us got to stay sober and employed to pay for all your social security and medicare.
