Yeah, a couple of states are going with full legalization, but don't forget, most states don't have a medical marijuana program.

I conquer Jason Caflin.... Therefore legalization will only contribute to the problem and make it even more accessible. Be a man and make your point without throwing derogatory names out there. It's called a debate and it's what adults due without resorting to immaturity due to lack of knowledge and facts. Appreciate your input man...Have a good day!!

Austin? Full of people who love smelling their own flatulence. They have festivals and all, but really if you're going to live in Texas, San Antonio is much better.

Oh and we have a bunch of Frank Lloyd Wright designed, or inspired buildings. These are absolutely beautiful but you have to be in Phoenix to see them and truly appreciate them.

Johnny how did you get white from Medina. Are there any flipping whites with the last name of Medina? Si hablo espanol. Austin has way too many liberals and dinosaur gun laws.

Not Detroit...but Austin TX is much better and the same size, you like Phoenix because you're white probably Christian and live a neighborhood where people would call the cops if they saw a Mexican drive past.

Arizona is great Phoenix is a sh*thole run by a psychotic state legislature who probably thinks Jesus fought the dinosaurs and some fat f*ck sheriff who has me rooting for Mexican cartels, it's a city with no culture - no music scene no art scene very few good music concerts - Austin TX makes Phoenix look like the sh*thole it is.

Arizona is the Entry Level State. Most people move here for a few years until they find something better.

Aida M. Scheck Medina....Just as I chose to move from Arizona to Florida because of all the issues, You chose Detroit....not very bright if you ask me so don't cry about it. Most smart and knowledgeable Americans know that Detroit is a bad place to live, homicides etc....I think I would have chosen better but not on me....thanks for the entertainment

people drive frickin SLOW here...ESPECIALLY in the left lane...idiots. And compared to any other city this size (not sure how many you've lived in or traveled to), take my word for it, traffic is SOOOO much better. People here are spoiled beyond belief, and all they do is complain. It's not perfect, but compared to many if not most other cities, it's pretty close (other than the slow drivers).

I just don't get what this Phoenician fascination with beaches is about...just dirty salt water,smelly dead sea critters washed up, and sand that gets up the cracks of your swimsuit. Give me a nice clean sparkling pool ANY day!

I have also been here for 40 years. I was born and raised in Phoenix. It has it's moments; but it doesn't have blizzards, tsunamis, hurricanes, tornados ( not like tornado alley), the suffocating humidity of the east coast, and other disasters that weather can inflict. Yes it has what can be unbearable heat but we have options like swimming pools and air conditioners.

Left it. The gun laws are great and I liked the grid system but the relentless sunshine was too much to bare. (Being a Welder in the Valley in an "open air" shop is brutal in the summer ..and just plain dumb.)

This article is almost all bullshit...I lived in Phoenix for almost 20 years. The traffic in Phoenix is not light, especially the loop 101 which is consistently bumper to bumper and people drive 80 to 100mph likes idiots. Marijuana is a good reason to live in Phoenix? That way all the illegal aliens can buy and sell the stuff....maybe the Mexican Mafia can kill people over it as that was a huge problem back in 2008 and still is. Last one I read and stopped at was the reason of being able to obtain guns very easily....that's all the state needs with all the border problems etc....write a real article for Gods sake
