Or we'd at least not remember being in a poor condition! The one downside to pot is what it does to the short term memory (if I remember right..)
My whole outlook on this is if a state makes it legal through a vote then the Feds should stay out of it as it's none of their business!
i completely agree with you there... the fed must have some kind of vested interest in marijuana being illegal. a weed, scheduled as a class 1 drug? with the only side effects being slight memory loss and weight gain? hmmm. i've taken non-prescription drugs with worse side effects.

the government should take the billions of dollars it spends on fighting marijuana and put it towards eradicating meth use in my opinion. i had a tenant who started smoking meth in my place once. i didn't have any experience with drugs at the time, but i heard of what happens to meth labs. everything needs to be torn out, and replaced. luckily i was spared this, but it got my heart pumping for awhile.

i would love to hear if someone has taken advantage of this initiative, and if they were ostracized by it. but for the most part i have seen a "see no evil, speak no evil, hear no evil" policy towards marijuana here.
There will always be arguments on either side of this issues. Some claim it does no harm others claim it does - whether on a personal rights issue or with health.

I am sorry for your experience... But just to let you know, one town doesn't reflect on the whole entire state.

I live in Sheridan, which sometimes gets a bad rap, because of good ole boys, and energy people... Being a newcomer, I have experienced that from some folks. However, I live next door to the nicest people. Some of the nicest people I have ever met in my lifetime, have been in Wyoming. One of my neighbors has lived here several generations and welcomed my family into his home during the holidays, cause we had no family close by.

I think rather than judge the entire state based on one town, you should try to get to know people in communities all over the state. You would be pleasantly surprised I think.

During the energy boom, in Wyoming a lot of greed was brought out of some individuals. But now that things are slowing in Wyoming, Methane companies are laying off as well as other energy companies.

The decent folks that live in Wyoming, because they love it here, stay and are the same as they have always been.

Anyways, not trying to hijack this topic, but give a little insight about Wyoming.

no we had an ok time... we had an in with the mormons because my wife's family is all mormon, but we couldn't really participate in much. we spent our time in the bighorns and yellowstone. it is a beautiful area.
