Would you have any qualms about a Floridian moving to Oklahoma?
Your fair state checks my boxes.
Liberal medical cannabis program, affordable COL and active weather to keep me from being bored.

Yuck, you ought to move to Oklahoma. It's July, and the hi temps still have a hard time getting into the 90s east of I-35.

No, not at all. You need to get away from all those dang bugs. I will never forgive Florida back when I was driving through most of that state down to Ft. Lauderdale and had to stop several times to scrape off bugs that had built up too thick on the windshield. The bugs are bad in Oklahoma, but not that crazy bad. Admittedly, though, the mosquitoes are bad after a week long rainy spell, but hopefully they won't last too much longer, especially if the rest of July and August doesn't turn too rainy. Also the humidity won't be as swelteringly miserable from day to day during the summer.

If it's a normal winter, it won't be too bad. However, February of 2021 was beyond belief, though. Never had I put up with such intensely cold weather lasting so long day after day. And never have I had a problem with any frozen water faucets before. But no disaster happened, since no pipes broke.

As for marijuana, I can walk by two medical marijuana dispensaries while walking to my favorite restaurant, Mexico Joe's. It's still hard to get over how the state legislature decided not to call a special session to gut the medical marijuana program people voted yes to. Instead, the legislature decided to let the state health department implement the medical marijuana program as instructed under SQ788, what the people voted YES by 57% for.

Oh Townie, I'd love to move to Oklahoma, but I'm too old now to make a big move like that (I'm 74). I'd have no support system, although I don't have much of one now, just a couple of friends the same age as me. Medical might be difficult also. My husband died 6 years ago and taking care of 15 acres is getting to be a real chore now, so a move of some sort will be needed eventually. I do have a niece in Grand Saline, Texas who wants me to come live with her, so that's an option.

Those would be love bugs and
they visit us twice a year (spring and fall) and are a nuisance for car owners although car wash businesses love when they come back.
Thanks for the info.

Most Californians looking to move to OK are conservatives. You may not see many Ca license plates because we know to change them immediately. As far as a relocation tax, the Ca government beat you to it. Many have received tax bills and some have even had their bank accounts frozen or money withdrawn from the CA gov't to pay some mysterious outstanding bill. Also, there were many an Okie that relocated to Ca during the dust bowl, depression and CA booms. So think of it as a returning home. My grandparents and their family were from TX and McCurtain county area of Ok before they moved to CA.

As far as Dutch Bros., I'm part of the Dutch Mafia so I'm bias. They don't franchise and to be a regional operator you have to have worked with the company for so long. They do good on fundraising for local issues too.

Be more concerned about OK giving incentives for Hollywood to have a film industry there. You don't want those type of people sticking around. But OKies need to have the right skills and education to fill the tech jobs, otherwise they'll have to bring in those that do, probably from liberal areas.

That's been a "thing" around here for about 40 years. They just passed a new incentive and the governor signed it in May to entice the movie industry to film here.

Since there are so many other places doing it we don't get a lot of action out of it but through the years we have had a few big time pictures that got filmed here...and of course a bunch of flops too.
