LOL, we have been there for a month. Coming home tomorrow. We may have passed each other. Lots of fly fishing on the conejos during that month. An awesome public gun/archery range out to 500 yards just 3 miles from the RV park.I was just in Antonito last month if you're talking Conejos county. It's a ghost town and I think its closer to 800 people living there. Small towns are dead here too. Haven't seen an isolated thriving town of 800 in OK with ready to work teenagers in a few years.
All those little dead border towns are now getting dispensaries to compete with Trinidad in getting New Mejicans coming over. the border to buy. Saves a long drive to Trindad or having to buy from Reyes' Hydroponic Camper Trailer out on the mesa, what with the screaming kids and pit bulls chained to tires and all that. I wonder if they'd even have a need to hire labor at restaurants if not for the increased weed tourism.
Granted I wouldn't want even my sleepy little town to simply be a border stop for out of state stoners if I lived there. 3 dispensaries in a town of 800 is ridiculous. Reminds me of the trashy LIQUOR/TATTOOS in Siloam Springs right at the state line before OK legalized tattooing. Another big reason why it should be legal in all 50 states.
We did drive around the dispensaries when we went to town looking for Oklahoma tags. All Texas but one lone okie. Zero Colorado tags.
Your closer to the actual population than I was. The sign going into town says 1500, but the 2010 census lists 710.
