Sooooo, to answer the OP's question, the ideal place would be Boulder, followed by Denver, but truth is there's a ton of pot in every city here, as it is nationwide, only we're increasingly more open about it.

The OP's budget will determine what location fits them best, until they tell us we can only suggest they check padmapper.com for rentals.

It's the "YOUR anointed savior" bit. I know a lot of people who voted for Obama, but none that thought he was anointed or a savior. Once you say that, nobody is paying attention to anything else you have to say.

Here, I'll answer her question: NOWHERE in Colorado are you ever going to see pot openly being smoked in pot shops or coffee shops or cafes or anywhere else for more than a short period of time. Pot is a Schedule I controlled substance under Federal Law, and YOUR elected Federal officials have taken an oath to the Constitution to uphold the laws of the United States.

There are over 10,000 DEA agents in the US, and tens of thousands more other Federal enforcement officials. They will send letters to each dispensary telling them they have one week to shut down or be arrested under Federal drug trafficking laws. A week later, they will start arresting those who didn't shut down. It doesn't take an army. They don't need to bust every user to kill the industry, they just bust the dispensaries. Obama is already doing this anyway:

Marijuana IS consumed routinely in public in Colorado, guess you don't get out much. Now more than ever. Just a few days back practically got a contact high from THC filled clouds in Aspen in front of the police station. I see people lighting up openly everywhere. Colorado is ground zero for the Kind BUD. Where do live, on the kansas border?

Right. Try firing one up in a restaurant or other commercial business and see how long it takes to be thrown out on your ass.

The OP wanted to know where she could hang with her buds (both kinds) in a coffee shop or commercial social setting. The answer is nowhere. Not today, not January 1, 2014. Sure, you can stand on the sidewalk in Aspen and pass around a doob. You can't light up in a public commercial space because ALL smoking is banned in public commercial spaces except for exempt tobacco shops. I went to a concert in Denver recently and they literally had an army of ushers running up and down the aisles warning people to put out their joints and pipes. You *never* saw that in the 70's.

Try firing up in Colorado Springs, Boulder, Grand Junction...hell, you can't even smoke tobacco on the Pearl Street Mall in Boulder.

I've only been in Colorado Springs a month, and I've already seen people doing it at sidewalk cafes downtown. *shrug*

Now i'm not suggesting any gambling with money or anything illegal.... just... when they don't shut down recreational and MMJ use next year.... can I get you to wear a jack ass costume on a busy street downtown that repeats your quote and you have to bray loudly for like five minutes? And certainly if they do, shut em down, BOOOM just like you 'think' then I will dress as a marijuana cigarette, with my affirmation that you're an idiot for thinking that, and cough loudly for five minutes on a busy street downtown....

Whaddaya say? I'm a woman of my word. I pay my bets, I expect the people I bet with to do the same. You THINK that's whats gonna happen, are you ready to put your jack ass suit where your mouth is? Come on, bet me, bet me!

Let me tell you about a stupid decision. A stupid decision is when you finally get an opportunity to socialize with your own kind... and you don't. It won't last forever you say? BFD... neither will I. I am sixty years old. I am still blessed with excellent health. Before that fades, I'm coming to Colorado. I'm going to get high there every freakin day. I'm going to make friends and get high with them. And if I knew where you lived I'd walk by your house every day with a holy pocket full of seeds. I'd skip by like I was Leo DeCaprio and just Laeaaaaaugh!! But I don't know where you live. Awe. So sad. Oh well.... there's still the pot and my new friends so it's all still good.

You don't ever make mistakes? Seriously? Lighten up. Live a little. Make a mistake now and then.

Oh thank you, Mike! I'm an online consultant and make a fair living. I like to pay as little as I can to live in a decent, reasonably safe area, where I can keep my two well housebroken chihuahuas, and my treadmill desk. I come from blue collar stock and I'm most comfortable with the same. At the same time, I'm willing to pay an extra hundred or two a month for a complex that has an indoor pool and hot tub. Cause my joints are getting tender enough to pay a little extra to take care of them.

I'll pay what I have to to meet those goals. Does that help? I'd love to find a place for $500. I'd wince like hell at a $1000 but you know, you pay what you have to. Someone told me Pueblo would be reasonably priced.
