I have thought of that as well, and that is why right now I am just wanting to get a job and move there. Once I'm living there I can start looking for other jobs, and also look into working for myself. I know at first I still might not be able to take advantage of the law, but at least if I do the worse that will happen is that I will lose a job, not get a felony and go to jail.

Default Wow

A state half full of people who just wanna sit around and get high. I haven't seen too many productive pot heads................

Oh, and as some of the well informed have mentioned already in different threads, good luck getting into the bulk of the higher paid jobs without passing a pee-test

Of course, in the very same way that everybody who drinks just wants to get drunk.

I've been smoking pot for 45 years, married for 37 years, raised & educated 3 kids, worked hard, built a great career, saved aggressively for retirement and am now reaping the rewards of a comfortable retirement.

Your stereotype is nothing more than that, a stereotype. I've smoked with doctors, lawyers, and many other professionals over the years. You must hang with street people or something because none of the other stoners I hang with are lazy as you suggest.

SoButCountry....do you expect us to believe someone like yourself who has ACTUAL EXPERIENCE using MJ over a 37 year period of life, over some guy who probably never smoked MJ, but simply absorbed all of the government propaganda and became a self proclaimed marijuana expert from doing so? The self proclaimed experts have ALL the answers, along with the government propaganda as their unassailable proof. A guy like you has only REAL LIFE EXPERIENCE.

I'm going to sort of disagree with you here. Just look at all the medical marijuana dispensaries along Federal between Alameda Rd and Colfax Rd.

No one I know can read, do math or be productive while they're high. You should keep in mind however that the pot heads that are lazy, do nothing idiots are just that...pot heads. They smoke every day, as soon as they get up in the morning, they hit the bong multiple times and then hit it several more times when they get home. Most people that smoke only do it every now and then. I myself only smokeout a couple of times a month on a Friday evening when I'm too tired to go out with my friends. I'd say that's a more normal smoking scenario/routine for most of us.

You have absolutely no idea what you're talking about.

I know plenty of highly productive pot heads, one of which may be signing your checks. In other words there are plenty who are business owners, politicians, or hold successful professional jobs that get high at least occasionally.

My problem with the OP was not the idea that people smoke, just the idea that someone would actually do something as dumb as move to another area of the country to live in a van, just so they can smoke weed all day long, deliver pizzas and live off the government. You can do that any where, and while the state may prosecute for weed in other areas, the feds can still prosecute in Colorado, then you are one hell of a legal battle.

As you said lots of very succesful people smoke pot, most people on this forum probably know/work for some of them, but of course they don't tell them cause they know what the people will think. Richard Branson, Willie Nelson, Carl Sagan, and of course 50-99% or successful actors, writers, musicians.

Where anywhere in my original post did I say anything about living out of a van, delivering pizza, or living off the government? Yes the feds can still prosecute in Colorado, but if I only have the legal amount I'm allowed to have in Colorado, and I am not selling why would they bother me. Where I live now they will throw me in jail for having a piece of a joint.
