Las Vegas can invest in CA's De-Sal Plants and get a bigger share of the Colorado water.

So we'll never really know the safety of coffee/caffeine.

Sorry if I went off-topic!
I’m confused why you’re using coffee and caffeine interchangeably?! Caffeine is completely safe, and good for you in many contexts. Caffeine before working out helps the body tap into fat stores faster and is a general aid to quality workouts. Coffee contains caffeine but lots else, too. I personally don’t drink coffee because I can’t trust what’s in it. I seem to be fine with quality coffee most of the time, but when it’s bad coffee (I’ve heard this happens with pre-ground types, there’s a fungus that grows on it that’s harmless to most people but I might be allergic to it) I have very bad reactions. I’ll get stomach issues, like extreme stomach aches, and I’ll also get crushingly tired - the exact opposite of what coffee should do. I’ve had bad coffee like that and had to take a nap immediately afterwards. I avoid coffee entirely now, just energy drinks (sugar free) because it’s a far better feeling of energy without any other side effects, or caffeine pills.

As for the water issues, one of the best things we could do I think is like the bill recently passed on ornamental grass. That aside, there needs to be action taken on idiots growing pointless things in the middle of a desert. We don’t need hay - 90% of what’s grown here - to be grown in the middle of a giant desert. It’s obviously idiotic. We can have some compassion for their family business, but then maybe the government should buy them out, or give them some money and give them BLM land in a more rainy state like OR or WA or ID. They use up an enormous amount and percentage of our water doing something absolutely nobody cares about whatsoever that doesn’t serve the greater good and doesn’t work with our water needs.

If NV were to subsidize De-Sal plants in CA, then strict rules would have to be enforced. If they're going to use De-Sal water to water their lawns, then it becomes self-defeating, and they'd still be using their allotment of Colorado River water.

they can't use their original allotment, there will be a interstate agreement before Nevada invests in CA's De-Sal Plants.

No I have not lived there--but I've spent more days in that city than OP has lived there, lol.
As with ANY city--there is the good & the bad.
As with any situation, perspective & attitude are EVERYTHING.
I am an educator & NO WAY would I teach there.
But coming from the Mid-west (and having arthritis), Vegas weather is near perfect--hot & dry in the summer, moderate to cool in the winter. I love that I can sit on my patio in LV & have coffee in the AM & drinks in the PM nearly 365 days a year. I might need a jacket in the winter, but I cannot sit outside in the winter here. I may need to wait until after sunset in the summer--but even here, the humidity can make that uncomfortable even after sunset.
Not cultured? Guess museums & the Arts District don't count.
Plenty of hiking & lakes nearby.
Plenty of shows on/near the Strip.
Plenty of suburbs for "regular" life.
It's true, Vegas in many ways is like nowhere else.
And it isn't for everyone.
I'd love to live in SoCal but not comfortable with those housing prices...
The arts district is block by block. A couple cool ones but then pimps and drug dealers on next block so stay in car. I live here.
