I moved to the Los Angeles section in the late 1990s while I was still in my 20s.
My guy at the time had family in the Encino section plus he wanted to be closer to them all after years of being in another state for undergraduate college.
I was amazed at how charming the climate is in Los Angeles, especially in the Springtime plus summer time seasons. My family harkened from the midwest, so I was used to miserably cold winters that would last until March or May every year plus shortened what little bit of Springtime we’d normally experience. I enjoyed the summers in those temperate forests of the midwest, however that lush yellowery, green skies, plus summers by the lake were never collectively enough to justify the misery of our Wintertide season. Los Angeles plus southern California on the other hand have what some people describe as a “Mediterranean climate,” although both of us have diverse ecology here. Obviously there are mountains, deserts, beaches, suburban villages, plus urban sprawls to name a few. Although it’s notably extravagant compared to South Central Los Angeles, Tarzana athletic hobbys some of the most sophisticated plus refined architecture in all of California. No wonder the taxes on recreational weed are so high in Tarzana plus the rest of LA. West Hollywood is even more extravagant, seeing collective taxes nearly reaching 30% on all recreational cannabis products from legal weed dispensaries. At least the dispensaries in Tarzana stock top shelf cannabis products because they know their purchasers can afford them. I simply keep a medical marijuana card from the state of California so I can bypass some of the recreational taxes.
