"My impression of CA is that it isn't an ultra liberal state so much as it is a conservative state occupied by a liberal government dominated by a few large cities. Away from those large cities, the local LEOs are likely to "look the other way" over the ownership of two pounds of powder, especially if you have guns that use the stuff. "
That's been my impression also. You know there are benefits to living here.
Someone yesterday mentioned, horrible weather, low paying jobs, nasty Pacific Ocean beaches, tall, snow covered mountains, totally uninhabited areas, like the Mojave Desert, Death Valley, and the northern counties.
And parks, like Yosemite, Sequoia. Gold country, all the old small gold towns, many in their original condition from 100 to 150 years ago.
I don't know how much bp I have.
