And do you think alcohol and tobacco should be kept underground?
Alcohol no. Tobacco I support more regulation of. If it reeks I don't want it near me. It is disgusting. Alcohol doesn't reek like pot does. And it is impossible not to make friends with the stoners when you go out and meet new people to the city like yourself and EVERYONE smokes pot!

You move to Denver then and tell me your experiences. Especially with trying to get a low end apartment with these stoners flocking into the city on a daily basis.

A couple of days? I was hospitalized with severe dehydration. Your hardship is petty compared to mine . I wonder what experience the OPs will be closer to.

I've been here since 1999. Denver isn't perfect but far from what you experience.

Looks like Denver or altitude isn't for you. No problem with that. Denver or any city is not going to be a fit for everybody. But let's not take your experiences and make it a universal truth.

Right. Your experience is going to be much different than mine. Denver was a much different place back then than it is today. Try being entry level in your career and affording that city and trying to find a place to even live today. Its a completely different ball game. My experience is much more relative to the OPs situation.

You don't know that. If the OP can afford southern California, he can afford Denver.

OP also differs from you in that he is doing research before moving and has a positive attitude.

The only city out of the 3 I've spent time in. Have friends in the area that will help me out when I get there. Denver: hear it's up and coming. Smallest out of the 3 cities but has a good downtown life I hear. Also have a friend that can somewhat help when I'm there. Chicago: don't know anyone and would be a completely different experience. If love some input from people who have had experience in these cities
Denver is dramatically larger than Portland...
Unless you are measuring by some metric that is not population. If you mean population, Denver wins in a landslide. Denver has around 3 million people in the MSA. Portland tried to claim 2.2 million, but if you look at their "MSA", it is over 6000 square miles as they try to claim people that have absolutely nothing to do with the city.

Portland is the smallest of the cities by a huge margin. You might want to look more into your quality of research...

Chicago is also the largest by a huge margin with over 8 million people.

Want to have a hardship off? I can give you tails from the midwest that should give you a run for your money. Tried searching for a job there. Hiring managers wanted me to crawl in a ditch and die, just make sure my *** is down far enough when I croak that it doesn't impede their view of the corn fields.

A couple years removed from awful Iowa and I'm a financial analyst pulling in good money. We can have a hardship off if you want, and it will be epic
