What's with all the haters? Any ski/tourist town fits the bill for the O.P.

Telluride and Salida were both mentioned, and I concur. Pretty much anywhere.

There is also Stoner, CO. Yes that is a real town.

I am not a picky person, I can work various jobs and delivering pizza is even o.k with me. I can always find a cheap place to live. I might even buy a large camper to live in and tow that to Colorado with my car.
You're not going to be able to find a cheap place to live in the mountains - at least not cheap enough that you can afford it by working "various jobs". And even if you did, how would you afford weed? The going rate at the medical dispensaries is somewhere between $200-$400 an oz. And if you're willing to uproot and move somewhere just so you can smoke legally/semilegally, I'm guessing you'd burn through that much in a week, 2 weeks tops. If you insist on living in Colorado, you might be able to afford living closer to the city - Denver, maybe... Just know that although law enforcement can't arrest you for possession (and probably wouldn't have even before prop 64 passed), buying pot commercially (without a medical card) is still at least a year away.

Maybe GoneNative got kidnapped by a bunch of long haired hippie freaks who forced his mouth open and stuffed copious amounts of marijuana down his throat.

Well, even with a job, cannabis ain't cheap as you explain above. Under A64 you can grow your own (up to 6 plants anyway) and that would be about the only affordable way to maintain any kind of stash for personal use by most anybody trying to live in the mountains. And even that has a lead time with time required for growth, harvest, drying, and curing. Not to mention the cost of the soil or hydro supplies & energy costs for lights to do it. Growing quality cannabis requires time & patience.

Colorado is not a good place to move to without a plan in place. Alluring, yes.... forgiving.... no.

Well, that explains it. I usually just bake a batch of cookies or brownies using some cannabis butter. So much easier to swallow that way.

You need a new supplier, bro. Ads in Westword claim $20 1/8ths and $120 ounces.

I guess things are more expensive in the mountains, surprise. The Vail paper has it for $200 p/oz for members, $225 non-members

I just wanted to say I really don't think 10 percent of the voters of the great state of Colorado passed this!!! And you can keep your head in the sand all you want. there are some old stoners coming there to retire. Guess what not all are going to be pizza boyz. Some are bringing there money talents and ambition!!
