    I was wondering if you or anyone you know moving to anMMJ state primarily to receive MMJ for health reasons. Did you/they just find a job in that state?

    I live in SC and these days everyone hires mostly local people, so finding a job seems impossible.

    Is there a support group/network that can help people with a valid need for MMJ (like severe pain) move to that state before finding a job? Like a half-way house?

    double_toke, it sounds like you have some anxiety about your anxiety. :)

    I live an a medical state but I do tend to plan my vacations in mj favorable states now since I started smoking. I am in SF this week for a tech conference and I wish home were this relaxed even though I do have an MMJ card in my home state.

    If you want some legal protection from your employer you will need to look for a state, like AZ, that specifically excludes inactive metabolites from workplace testing, meaning you would have to be high AT WORK for it to be an issue. This hasn't been tried in court yet, as far as I know.

    Moving just to get legal medical marijuana seems like a lot of effort for little return. Marijuana is available almost anywhere and one's chances of getting busted are very small if you're careful. If you don't deal, you don't smoke in public view, and manage odor control, you are very unlikely to get caught.
