You can already live how you want. This is not a fascist bootcamp. Yall need to get real. So what if somebody condemns you, thats an opinion. You dont have to abide by anything but the law.

Ehh, I beg to differ. True that I didn't go into basics of what I meant about living how we want, but it goes back into our family ties and certain laws. I personally don't think that government should have power to determine what we can consume legally and what not, especially since alcohol IS legal and yet more deadly than marijuana. Marijuana is bad here, but only to someone's record and those that can't handle it.

It has the nation's highest murder rate -

Why Is The Murder Rate High In Louisiana - Business Insider

It has the nation's and the WORLD'S highest incarceration rate -

Louisiana is the world's prison capital | NOLA.com

It's among the worst of all states in it's mortality rate -

12 Deadliest States With The Highest Mortality Rates - Insider Monkey

And it's poverty rate is off the charts -

Poverty rate stuck at record 46.5 million; Louisiana has 2nd highest rate

I think a better state to live in instead of Louisiana would be like Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Maine!!
Well, yeah, it's a dump. That's why I and many like me moved.

It’s not great, but it has some personality. I always give credit for that.

Yes Louisiana is not a great state to reside in. The education is poor, taxes are high, property values are low, but... what do you get for them? Not much. I live here, but only for my job. I have no family or relatives here.

OMG I can't believe you actually said that? Would you care to share with us where you got that so untrue idea? So you are telling us the Carolinas, Ga, Florida etc are all dumps, have you paid any attention to where many people are moving to in the past 10 to 20 years?

i wonder if this sort of stuff is even allowed to be said in other forum sections about other states or if its just considered spam? like if I go into California threads calling it a crime ridden feces dump?
