Is it possible for this tenant to get the same benefit by eating it instead?

And I don't see what a child with asthma has to do with it unless they directly share ventilation when he smokes.

The mother is being an insufferable, drama-queening turd.

Can he get the same benefit by eating? Good question. I would think vaping might be useful. Perhaps an expert could weigh in on this. I find smoking the best delivery system, but that's just me.

You can also pay taxes on it which will go to prosecuting you.

That is not surprising.  What would be more surprising is if some deranged HOA starts kicking homeowners out of their neighborhoods for smoking medicinal marijuana.

This is Colorado, after all.  You can't swing a dead cat without hitting a deranged HOA.

Have you ever lived in an apartment? Smoke permeates through those flimsy walls. I like how the one person in this story with a legitimate medical condition (asthma) is being overlooked in favor of the potheads.

Can't you be evicted for smoking tobacco, if that is against the terms of your rental agreement/lease, even though that is legal? So is there a reason this is surprising?

If he's in the apartment above or right nearby, he could be getting it second-hand regularly.

Edibles might work for this guy, or vaping pot oils or concentrates, which hardly smells like anything compared to burning plant matter.

A medical marijuana card isn't a free pass to smoke whenever and where ever you want - the guy needs to realize this.

Well, it does say he sometimes smokes out on his balcony, so a kid playing outside, or the family having open windows could allow some smoke in.  It's also not uncommon for smells to pass through apartment walls, but it's also very possible the mom of asthma kid is just being a drama queen.

Still, don't they make vaporizers that send all of the smoke into a plastic bag that the user then inhales from, eliminating all but the faintest smell?  He could get one of those.

I do think there need to be protections in law for users of legal marijuana when it comes to housing and employment, and I believe we'll eventually get there.  The landlord seems to be pretty reasonable here, it doesn't sound like he wants to evict the guy just  because he uses, but because of complaints from other tenants.  If the guy found a way to use that didn't bug other tenants, the landlord would likely not hassle him.

Hey, subs! When they say "No Smoking in the Apartments"; they mean it. It can be completely legal; but, if your lease stipulates no smoking, you still break the terms of your lease and they can kick your booty to the curb.

MJ should be treated the same way tobacco is in this case.  Better buildings increasingly ban it simply for the disturbance to other tenants, the damage it does to the apartments themselves, and the litter.

There is more demand for smoke-free buildings than buildings that allow any smoking in growing cities these days. The more up-scale, the more this is the case.  Wealthy yuppies/techhipsters don't want any smoke in their apartment buildings regardless of what plant is being burned.

TFA doesn't say what floor his balcony is on. If it's like the one in the pic they included, then he should probably keep that inside anyway. If it's above street level, the kids wouldn't be getting anything other than a smell, which will definitely not aggravate asthma symptoms.

Oh, and somebody should warn the whiney family to stay away from Seattle, you can't go more than a few blocks without smelling something dank.

Cigarette smoke is much, much stronger than weed smoke though, unless you are saying that your friend's unemployed neighbor is chain smoking the marijuanas. In which case I want to kick them.

I've never used one, but it appears to have some sort of mouth piece that attaches to the bag, with what may include a valve to prevent the smoke from escaping when you aren't inhaling.

Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: I wonder how many people who have boners for the federal government over the Bundy Ranch thing also support states rights weed laws... hmmm


I wonder how many people realize that the Bundy debacle had nothing to do, whatsoever, with "States Rights"  Apparently at least one doesn't.

For the record, allowing 900 head of cattle roam freely on restricted pubic land is a far different thing than allowing adults to use a relatively benign substance for medical, or recreational purposes.

I never really root for the feds, but I sure as hell can't root for a "rancher" with no land gaining a significant advantage over his competitors through ignoring long-standing restrictions on the use of certain public lands.  When said "rancher" also ides around waving the American Flag and blaring the National Anthem, while claiming the federal government doesn't exist, he proves that he is a moron as as well as a welfare queen.

As for TFA, dude really should vaporize, or, as suggested, utilize edibles when he's in his apt.

Back when I was house-hunting I encountered that a few times.  One house was so bad that my realtor couldn't set foot in it; she had a very keen sense of smell and just being in the doorway was starting to make her sick.  Even as less sensitive as I am, I didn't spend a lot of time looking.  It had a decent floor plan, but I passed because I didn't want to deal with the hassle of cleaning it up at the price it was listed for.

Until marijuana is legalized at the federal level we'll have issues like this popping up.  Still, as has been stated above, if the issue is the smoke, and the apartment complex has a no smoking policy (which the article doesn't say if it does) the complaint could be made about just the smoke, and not which plant it's from.

Renters have reduced rights compared to property owners, that's nothing new.

Vaporizers don't just spontaneously generate weed.  You still have to buy it from somewhere or grow your own.  Also, I think you just put your own normal weed into it.  It doesn't require the weed equivalent of K-Cups or anything.

iheartscotch: Caffeine Induced Diarrhea: iheartscotch: TuteTibiImperes: The My Little Pony Killer: Is it possible for this tenant to get the same benefit by eating it instead?

And I don't see what a child with asthma has to do with it unless they directly share ventilation when he smokes.

Well, it does say he sometimes smokes out on his balcony, so a kid playing outside, or the family having open windows could allow some smoke in.  It's also not uncommon for smells to pass through apartment walls, but it's also very possible the mom of asthma kid is just being a drama queen.

Still, don't they make vaporizers that send all of the smoke into a plastic bag that the user then inhales from, eliminating all but the faintest smell?  He could get one of those.

I do think there need to be protections in law for users of legal marijuana when it comes to housing and employment, and I believe we'll eventually get there.  The landlord seems to be pretty reasonable here, it doesn't sound like he wants to evict the guy just  because he uses, but because of complaints from other tenants.  If the guy found a way to use that didn't bug other tenants, the landlord would likely not hassle him.

You still have to exhale.

A plastic bag you inhale from.....

Yes, let's put air tight plastic right up to our mouths and inhale. It's such a great idea. I'm sure no one will get accidentally asphyxiated to death.

"Help! Help! Im holding a bag in front of my mouth and I cant figure a way out of this mess!"

How did this person survive long enough to know what a bag is?

Didn't some lady win millions from McDonalds because her coffee was too hot? Plus, how many people fall for the old Nigerian prince thing? Never underestimate dumb.

The city I live in (san jose) has a bizarre law prohibiting outdoor smoking in apartment complexes. however, you can smoke indoors all you want. cigarette smoke indoors is disgusting. pot doesn't leave a lingering smell, but you can smell it when it's being smoked.

I work with disabled people, and a neighbor of my client was recently almost kicked out for smoking pot (disabled housing). I don't know if he has a prescription, but in HUD housing (federally funded), they are super strict.

i'm not sure why people are bringing up seattle and colorado, tfa is based in CA, and references CA law several times, so the landlord/tenant are probably in CA.

i think it's fair for neighbors to complain. their health is probably not being affected, but the tenant is being an ass to think he has some sort of protection when vaping or edibles are nearly as convenient, and are healthier for him to boot.

things like this are why i'm thankful i don't live in an apartment. common courtesy is so often lacking.
