San Diego is pretty supportive of medical cannabis. They have there on guidelines to protect patients.

Cost of living in Portland, VS, San Diego, VS S. FL? Parts of S. FL and Portland are relatively close in real-estate/renting. San Diego on the other hand is very pricey, but it's quite nice, great climate, lots to do, a very liberal free spirited crowd.
There are other things to take in to consideration, such as cost of insurance, sales tax, price of gas (you can get by without a car in Portland).
Keep in mind you're age and what you're like, if you are young, and enjoy the nightlife/party scene, plus would like to meet someone, love the great outdoors, look for a place near colleges in areas with medium sized cities. Washington is nice but it's a tad urbanized, and the city/spread isn't easy to canvas.

While in Portland I never wanted to stay indoors there were to many wierd things going on all the time, in the short time I was there I had a really wild good time.
Good food, very green, art, carnivals, beer festivals, huge book store, a campus right in the heart of the city, strip clubs galore, desert is 1hr away, ocean, mountains, lava chute spelunking, huge dance/concert floor on ball bearings, easy to meet people. (there are old catacombs running under certain parts of the city). Next time you're in the bookstore, check out the large photographic book called "Oregon", what you see is what you get.

thingts to consider about oregon.

high unemployment,if you don't like the fog and rain it can be very depressing.

but the nature surrounding the state is friend lives in portland and he goes hunting,fishing,crabing,clam diggin mushroom hunting, offroading.....lots of things to do.

I really love the southern oregon coast,the forest is so different,redwood forest are amazing.just like northern cali but CHEAPER!

as for southern my opinion I would choose a place south of L.A.

reasons:less pollution,less traffic,less assholes,less crime.

it's within driving distance from los angeles, which in southern cali is the place to be to make money.

although these things come at a higher price of living,they can make a difference in maintaining your sanity in that fucked up city.

I would move to a beach city like redondo beach,manhatan beach or something similar.making the hot summer days bearable.

I have friends around there and if you look really good you can find some places for a decent price.

northern california is cheap,but I can't imagine what type of jobs there would really be other working for the lumber companies(except of course the obvious farming the land for your medicine).

My wife and i want to move to New Zealand, its beautiful we are gonna go there on vacation next year to check it out. My wifes friend is from there and gets the paper from there everyday, we found some nice 10 acre tracts with nice houses on the coast for 130,000, and that isnt bad compared to the same land here on the coast. But maybe we could all buy a big Mycotopia commune somewhere on the west coast....yah thatd be great one big Hippie3 about a literal mycotpia..boy thatd be great...

Portland Oregon area is great! I moved here in '99 and have loved it since. Portland itself is great, with lots of good concerts and museums, and parks and stuff. there are also so many great places close by. The coast, and the mountain are both about an hour away. Beautiful views of Mount Hood everywhere you look. Oh yeah, and mushie picking in the fall(some potent ones). I love it here. I really like Bellingham Wa too. I've considered moving there, but I love it so much here...

As a diver I think Florida offers the most diverse diving in any state and possibly the world. They have it all,rivers, springs, sink holes, caverns, caves, quarries, Atlantic Ocean wrecks, treasure wrecks, the Keys and John Penemkamp marine sanctuary and the best spear fishing in the world IMO just 20 miles out in the Gulf. And it's all within driving distance. Paradise for a diver!

Prague, Czech Republic. Cheap beer, beautiful women, bohemian lifestyle!! The weirdest place on earth to trip............... some say, the new Amsterdam.

And, the only place I've gone to a bar, and had a beer with a real jester...........

Used to live there..........

Vancouver or Toronto..both very beautiful..both with an abundance of cannabis shops..both with nice stores

Althoug...if I had the money, I'd get a cabin/house on the rocky north shore of Lake Superior. I have a mysterious connection with that lake, like it calls me. I can't even begin to explain the spiritual connection I have with that lake. Maybe it's time for a huasca or ether trip and figure some things out

There are great places to live like the Mountains, Vancouver, Toronto etc. but Minnesota is my home and I can't leave my roots behind

was thinking about a move to san diego
but the weather in cali has turned pretty crazy
might move instead back to tejas,
houston perhaps,
hear the oil fields are back up,
there's money flowing again.
got a friend there too,
his wife's in the art community there
which ties in nicely
with my wife's interests.
so we may end up in that general area,
kinda still lookin'...
