    Eventually they get to states like NY where the government pay is better. Can't say I blame them. The word is out that now is the time with the open border and I would do the same if I could do nothing and milk the government instead of living in a troublesome country with no future.

    They're actually going to the south and Midwest now (for low skilled jobs) ... the rest of the country is getting a taste of what the border states have had to deal with for years. It's good to spread the "wealth".

    Do you have a radar that tracks illegals? I prefer rc controlled helicopters with infrared cameras to pick up on the illegal hot spots. I've noticed a trend. They go where the pot of gold is.

    Some of the best weather in the state. More affordable than the Bay Area to boot.

    I'm in San Diego and loving it. Came out here for boot camp and training and never looked back. I re-enlisted to get sent back out here for instructor training and stayed when I got out of the Navy. Been here nearly 30 years now (holy crap...!) Where else do you get beach, desert and mountains in an hours drive?

    Then CO is the place. In California you need "qualifying medical condition" to get "relief".

    Nah... I'm referring to the illegal grows around Norcal. When discovered and raided, they're typically tended and guarded by illegals working for the big cartels south of the border.

    Legalization will fix that. It's a huge problem causing environmental damage.

    Somewhat agree... If it's legal here though, it will probably attract more growers from outside. There's no one right answer, unfortunately. As far as use goes... It's less injurious than alcohol.

    A majority of doctors are no better than the drug dealers you see on the streets. I read an article stating that more people die from prescription drug overdoses than from heroin and cocaine combined

    Well then it must be true, it was on the internet after all!

    So what you are saying is because prescription medicines area available and prescribed for a specific illness and people ignore how the drugs are to be used or do not secure them and someone else uses them, it is the fault of the doctor?

    Yeah, that argument has a lot of logic but like the man said, if it's on the internet, it must be true.

    Good lord this thread has degenerated rapidly.

    Personally, I don't care where anyone lives which is more to the point of the original post.

    Doctors are handing out these prescriptions like candy and making junkies.

    I think the point of the thread was that California was the best state in the union, right?

    "Doctors are handing out these prescriptions like candy and making junkies."

    Would you please submit the original source for the above statement so I can check it myself?. I would not want to accuse someone of posting opinions disguised as facts if they can supply the original source material.

    I trust integrity is not asking too much of someone who posts something on the internet.

    Please let me know if wanting to verify a statement is asking too much?

    What you post may be entirely accurate and I would consider myself further educated if you would provide what I request or you can indicate that what you said is only your opinion. Thank you in advance for your assistance.

    Marin County is a great spot to live. Small town atmosphere that is close to a major metropolis for culture, jobs, and expensive meals. Over 55% of the county is protected open space. It sucks for single track riding but it makes it hard for them to patrol everything. The riding is year round and I can get to most local trails within 30 min of road riding. The road riding is world class as well. There's nothing better than turning off your laptop and riding 30-45 minutes and not see a house or person in sight.

    A big difference between Marin and a lot of other communities in California is the driving. In the South Bay, San Francisco, LA, or San Diego, you have to drive a lot farther to get to things. It takes 30 min just to drive to a grocery store. It's nuts. Traffic drives me crazy.

    Perhaps it's a little expensive but what else are you going to do with a million dollars. You might as well buy a crappy house with it to store your bikes.

    The rock climbing in Marin could be a LOT better. It pretty much sucks. When I climbed a lot there was a local gym, Class 5, but that closed and now you have to huff it to the Presidio. Outdoor climbing is limited to Mickey's Beach and Turtle Rock. We can make it to Lover's Leap or Donner in less than 3 hours and Yosemite in 4 1/2. There is no better place to be a climber than Yosemite so I'd call that a huge win for California.

    Oh ya, the politics sucks too. Damn yuppies, techies and hippies.

    Sorry I interrupted the static and returned to the original topic.

    That's why I chose to live in Bishop, where the climbing is amazing and the mountain biking could be better, although during 5 months of the year I can poach Mammoth after work (40 minutes away).

    Who said you could get us back on topic? ...but yeah, I'd agree with that. I'm a tad biased living in Norcal.
