Thank you in advance. (No, I don't smoke. At all.)
3 states, then you name four? OK! Colorado is expensive, but not as much so as CA, possibly WA as well. I think NV is fairly low for COL. You can grow it here. I don't know what the rules are.

Unless you’re planning on starting a legitimate marijuana business this should be way down on the list of priorities when looking to relocate. Medical and/or recreational marijuana is legal in 35 +/- states, and I seriously doubt anyone has ever been denied getting a medical card. While there may be states out there that won’t let you, I’ve never heard of not being able to grow for personal use if it’s for a medical condition. I’m sure there’s plenty of websites out there that’ll break down all the medial and recreational rules for every state.

To the OP's question, no, there is not much outwardly that has changed in the States that have legalized. I think those who choose to buy legally tend to use it legally, as in only in their private residence. My personal opinion is this drug is less harmful than alcohol, but that is just me. I think most are aware that the odor can be a problem, and they try hard to keep it to a minimum within their communities. Most weed users actually have a conscience believe it or not. They are not deadbeats, or "dopeheads" they are good citizens of most communities. In general the Genie is out of the bottle with this and there is no evidence this State legalization has created more problems.

A friend of mine moved to Washington for two reasons...to be near me and for legalized marijuana. As soon as she moved here she heavily indulged, smoking pot all day everyday. She had extreme psychotic episodes, got kicked out of the house she was renting, went to jail for attacking a police officer and is currently residing in a state mental hospital. I think heavy use is more dangerous than we are told.
