I lived in many different states over the years, and there were advantages and disadvantages to them all.
Before you consider the differences in laws, you have a huge degree of geographical and geological diversity from 1 coast to the other.
I wasn’t a big fan of the desert areas, only because the heat was terribly overheated while we were in the summer seasons. I kept telling myself over and over that I’d prefer the heat once I finally got there, but after that I couldn’t deal with it once my thermometer was reading 112 degrees 1 afternoon. Living in the South is similar, but at least I was able to enjoy some of the most lovely beaches I’ve ever seen while I was down there for a few years while fulfilling work obligations. My new state has a tremendous amount of geological diversity between counties, so you can find a totally different temperature depending on which city you choose as a residence. We managed to pass a constitutional amendment legalizing medical cannabis back in 2016 despite our lack of uniformity, but the state legislature won’t stop messing around with the rules and regulations when it comes to marijuana. And once the state changes the guidelines over marijuana, they don’t ever get changed back. I thought that our constitutional amendment over medical cannabis would protect it from legislative overreach, but it hasn’t in this particular state. The state legislature is regularly working hard crafting new ways to make it tough for heavy users to get access to cannabis in this state to the same degree they would in any other state with a medical marijuana program. Patients shouldn’t be punished for simply having higher tolerances for the plant’s amazing effects.
