Quite right - and that's a ton of talent, especially in the computer field and business start-up savvy. The op is just describing early retirement. It's pretty cheap to get into a roommate situation with the younger people who are staffing the ski resorts and fast-food places. That is prime co-op grower territory. Some of the land is pretty cheap, where the water is gone. lots of rural mobile homes and camper setups already exist. byow.

What part of Colorado would you recommend and why?
The vast majority of rural Colorado will be a good fit for you, especially if you choose to be poor and celibate. +1 for Salida. Also check out Buena Vista. There are places close to BV where you can camp (Four Mile campsites on the east side of the Ark through the railroad tunnels) and be close to work. Also, City Market usually hires help for the summer tourist season. Good luck.

Pagosa Springs would work for you although you would probably find a younger more happening 420 crowd in Durango and Durango is $$$.

You have probably thought of this, but in case you haven't: larger companies require drug testing. Not all of them, but many will and they may also require a background check. It will limit your employment opportunities to smaller businesses or those that are sympathetic to our new MJ policy.

Make sure the heater in your RV works. GL

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.
The OP is from Cleveland, where you can buy a house for less than a new car, so of course he has distorted views. If you're not coming here to be a productive member of society, then I suggest you look at Vermont, Colorado doesn't need you. Not that I have a problem with weed or anything, but you can't just be a lazy high bum all the time.

Very true. The OP should consider how his life looks to random strangers. Freedom and the pursuit of happiness? Nah, that's just for the week-end after you're payed your debt to society. Maybe PM Ryan, he'll set you straight on acceptable ways to live your life.

and I doubt anywhere close to 50% are okay with someone moving to the state to get high and not contribute to society.

While I don't find the OP's lifestyle a paragon of productivity, a job delivering pizzas is a job, which serves a function and garners taxes, which we (who judge him) benefit from.

Prejudice apart, push pin is equal to poetry.

I guess people can't come on here with a simple question without being ridiculed for their lifestyle choices!! The man asked a simple question. If you have nothing decent to say, then shut the **** up! He's not attacking your choices!!!!
