My point was that LA`s problems are about the opinions of 16 year old`s If you don`t believe me look at the homicide or attempted homicide stats. You will see that the 16-20 year old age group are particularly involved..they may not be able to get spots but they can and do get guns.You are much more likely to get shot by a 16 year old than by practically anyone else except maybe a cop.
I listen to my kids,talk about issues and all that stuff, if more people did that I`m sure there would be less strung out kids on the street.
So if you are still confussed go and talk to your father.

You can't even spell confused and your post is still incoherent nonsense.

Sorry it was the middle of the night and I`d been sitting in my private cove drinking for a couple of hours. I will immediately throw my PC down to the rocks and buy a MAC.
Still confused....good.

I've lived in NorCal my entire life. They totally do smoke more weed here, though- Humboldt?? Duh. Like many said before, it depends WHERE in the region. The City, Sactown- fairly fast-paced. Santa Cruz, Monterey, Placer County, Bodega Bay- muy chill.

I lived in both places. Northern California is more industrial and high tech then SC. It's colder and more expensive. There are the liberal, hippie types in Santa Cruz area. NC is probably more liberal especially San Francisco.
Southern California is more beach oriented. Areas in OC and IE are more conservative. Hollywood isn't. I think SC is more of a tourist town and more laid back then NC. People don't generally go to NC to vacation.

The major cities indicate the opposite: LA is more laid back than SF. But politically, SD and Orange County are much more conservative than the Bay area. LA is not conservative though. The surrounding areas tend to be similar. I think there's a fair amount of pot smoking everywhere - South has Venice Beach and the North has Humboldt County. All of CA is casual (fashion wise), SF being the exception (which has a very European flavor).

That all depends on:

a) how you define 'laid back'
and
b) what part of NorCal vs SoCal you're talking about.

This is such a pointless topic. Why did I even respond?

The most laid back place I've ever been was Half Moon Bay. I was looking for apartments there.. what a sleepy little place. The other people I met there who were my age were really relaxed, you could even hear it in the tone of their voices that they saw life a little bit differently. Then you go to South San Francisco about 20 minutes away and people are still friendly, but they're a bit more brusque and rude. It's interesting.
