I'll be retired soon enough and want to spend my retirement years in a place where I can smoke pot legally. Yes! It's about time.

So what are prices like in colorado for a nice condo in a pot-friendly town?

Look at Realtor.com for prices in cities around the state.

Otherwise your post is too vague for us to help you. Go back and read out Terms of Service to see the sort of things we need to know about you before we can suggest anything.

If all you want is cheap living and MJ, move to Pueblo.

A "nice" condo will run you a quarter million dollars and up. I guess for a "pot friendly" town try Boulder or Denver. Good luck to you.

Well I do not know anything about the cities in Colorado. I was in Denver once on business, but that is it. Guess I was just looking for some suggestions from locals. Would be nice to find a laid back artsy town with easy access to weed shops and not too far from a major city like Denver. I like hiking, too, so someplace close to the trails would be great.

I will check out Pueblo.

Maybe Nederland? But I don't think it's cheap and it's more of a cabin in the woods type place than a condo type place.

If you have the money to burn on the extremely expensive pot, you really should not have a concern about the price of a condo. Perhaps it is that idea--if you have to ask, you cannot afford it.

If you need to live cheap, so you can afford pot then that is what you have to do. There are pot shops all around Denver where housing is less expensive and also dirt cheap or living on the street for free. All you have to read the real estate guides that are readily available online and pick a price range that fits you. Obviously, you may be priced out of the more tonier neighborhoods. Smoking enough pot and living in the miasma of that experience, you will not care where you live.

I am not making a judgment on pot smoking; I am just curious and making an observation. I stopped by one of the many pot shops that I regularly pass. There was a long line and I wanted to talk to the patrons. I would say all the ones I saw where living on the edge with little money--their clothes, demeanor and speech did not put them in the upper class. I have no idea how the wealthy buy this stuff but I do not think they are standing in line or caught going into some of these places. Perhaps there is a backdoor concierge service for the well heeled. Do the cream of society hire proxies to get it for them because the do not have the time or cannot be seen because of their status and occupations? I am sure many smoke pot even if they publicly voice the expected opinion against such.

I don't need to "live cheap," as you put it, but I don't want to spend money needlessly, either.

Pot is a lot cheaper than alcohol by almost any measure, and it's more fun, more creative, and less harmful, as well. I can do without the latent judgments in your response, which was devoid of actual information, but thanks anyway.

This was in the Washington Post and since the OP is considering Pueblo I thought it would be good to post it here.

This is from the Washington Post:


“They’re trying to make Pueblo into the Little Amsterdam of Colorado,” Stetler said of local officials.
