Everyone is guessing.

I know a lot of natives who fish or hunt, camp or hike. I know quite a few less who ski, snowboard, or mountain bike. Nearly all transplants I know indulge in at least a few of these activities.

Ha! Nothing like a closed mind, is there?

The problem is, there is NO WAY no know the data you ask for. How do I know that? Because I am part of the unknowable data.

I am in my 5th year in rural Colorado, and yes, one of the top reasons for moving here was because of sane pot laws. Is there anyway that data can be known? No, because no one has asked and I have kept it private. Most people moving here from any of the draconian states are not comfortable discussing their pot usage with anyone, regardless of legality.

So, how many dozens of others that have moved here in the last six years are like me? Or hundreds? Or thousands? Or tens of thousands? Or...

I submit there is no way to know, which is not a good reason to just "Oh, like wow man" stop the discussion about it.

Not surprised by these articles coming up...knew it was going to happen mass migration out of CO. Great place to visit, not a good place to live unless you can afford it.

Agree. Nor do they understand that almost a third of the state is great plains.

I agree that most people who have never visited Colorado understand that a third of the state is plains, but I absolutely disagree that most people think Denver/ Front Range is Colorado. In fact quite the opposite. Most people who haven’t visited think Colorado is Aspen, not Denver.

They think Denver is in the mountains and Boulder and Aspen are suburbs.
