Because her neighbors are medical marijuana cardholders, Moore said her property management company and city code enforcement staff have told her there is nothing they can do, as long as the residents are using the cannabis inside their homes.

Really? Is there an exception for the Medicinal part? Because the last apartment I lived in had a rule against smoking on the property.

/Not a super-enforced rule, mind
//Which might have caused issues if they tried to boot someone for it.
///And I'm pretty sure they would have tried to boot someone for it if they were smoking in the unit.

In Denver the cops have these "sniffer guns" that measure the amount of smell you're releasing.

Too much stink, you get a warning to change out your filters or get better ones. Do it again and you get fined.

I've heard this.  I've also heard no one has ever reached the odor level that would violate the sniff test.

Sure, because if pot is legal, pepole who never smoked it will start smoking it, and people who already smoke it will smoke lots more. EVERYONE will be smoking pot EVERYWHERE!!!11!

And there was a little blurb about the heavily-Mormon suburb of Gilbert, which I'm moving the heck out of in a few days, passing an ordinance to prevent a ballot proposition that hasn't even been passed by the voters, of going effect in the town.

I wish the country could get past decriminalization and go straight to legalizing.  I think either candidate accepting legalizing would boost them greatly

I dont partake but I still dont get why they haven't moved past it

People without medical cards won't be allowed to smoke weed in their apartments any more than they can smoke cigarettes. I thought this was going to be about the stench of growing operations which I've read can be pretty horrible. Like living next to a chicken operation.

Also it seems like she and her neighbors could find some middle ground and go 50/50 edibles and smoking to reduce the smell.

I'm downwind of my pot smoking neighbor and some evenings I have to tell him to cool it because the skunk stench of it is blowing into my daughter's second floor room.

If he'd just go to the other side of the house with it I'm sure it would fade out before it got here, but nooooo, he's gotta stand there between the houses and toke away hacking and coughing like an amateur.

So I get where she's coming from, but come on.

I'm interested to know what the data is on people who ACTUALLY use their medical cards for medical reasons, and what percentage of them smoke vs edibles/other ingestion.

And when I say actually use their medical cards, I mean the people that have a legit reason to use it for medical purposes, not the "my back hurts sometimes and weed helps, and I gave my doctor a hundred bucks"

/Very pro weed btw, but a LOT of people used the medical "loophole" to be able to legally grow and smoke, probably more than actual patients

Chevello: I'm downwind of my pot smoking neighbor and some evenings I have to tell him to cool it because the skunk stench of it is blowing into my daughter's second floor room.


my across the street neighbor and his wife smoke; some mornings i'll be out walking the dog at say, 6-630AM and smell cigarette smoke and think, ".....nothing like a smoke at 6 godamn AM to make you feel alive...."  nighttime is common too.

we had some neighbors that lived a legit .....100yards away, point to point.  3-4 houses down.  They were really nice people, young hippies.  Huge Phish fans.  we never socialized per se but we'd chat at the mailbox or say hi when we saw each other.  anyways, they reeked of patchouli.  there were times when I'd be in my backyard and smell patchouli.  How much godamn patchouli are you wearing when i can smell it wafting in the air, 100 yards downwind?

they only lived there for about a year.  other neighbors are realtors and know the realtor that sold the house after they moved out.  supposedly the realtor said to our pals, "the house was gorgeous, and sold in no time flat, it was on the market for barely a week.  BUT.  you thought it smelled bad on the outside?  I had two cleaning crews come in and that smell was still there.  the buyers asked if we could do anything to make it go away and all we could say was, 'give it time'."

And not stupid people figured out that it still stinks if you don't smoke and have a working nose

I did that when I was younger and didn't want my mom to know I was smoking, stuffed a paper towel tube full of dryer sheets. I barely finished exhaling before she started screaming ARE YOU SMOKING DRUGS UP THERE!!???

Do you smoke? I find many marijuana smokers are so noseblind to the oder they have no clue how bad it actually smells anymore. Yes, it's worse than tobacco and exhaust.

"If marijuana becomes legal to be recreational, everybody else who doesn't do that and is afraid of their health and their kids, and pets, they're going to be affected by it big time..."

If you're afraid of your health, kids, and pets... you probably qualify for a cannabis license, and should have some.

Nope. Your right to smoke (for ANY reason) ends where it negatively impacts somebody else. Want to smoke in your bedroom? Great. Figure out a way to keep your smoke contained to your apartment. Filters, air purifiers, keeping the windows closed, exhaling through a tube stuffed with dryer sheets, or whatever. Figure out a solution. Don't let your smoke impact your neighbors. If you *do*, you're an asshole.

The smell of weed is basically the ketchup of scents.  It's strong and identifiable enough for you to know it's there... but it's completely inoffensive, at least to me.  I'm not a pot head and never have been.

If we're going to ban things for offensive odors it wouldn't top any lists of things we already accept in our daily lives.

For the old folks, it was so heavily beat into their heads that marijuana is the Devil! My grandfather got incredibly,  personally offended when it was suggested that CBD would help with his pain. I thought he was gonna stroke out.

Exactly.
I don't smoke, but I can identify it immediately. It doesn't bother me. Cigarette smoke is way worse, and so is the perfume/cologne that some people wear. So is the odor of some people who don't shower properly.

The real change will come when companies stop testing for it.  Nobody cares about the laws regarding pot and even teenagers know where to find it, but people do care about losing their jobs.

I'm all for legalizing pot, and as a low level manager I think it's the stupidest thing I've ever had to fire an employee for, but there are a lot of people who aren't smoking for fear of drug tests.

The worst part is that some of them are drinking heavily because they can't smoke.

Are you going to grief a senior citizen smoking to ease their way through radiation treatments, and doesn't have the energy overall to get creative between bouts of vomiting, etc?

I'm not sure what the legal status of marijuana is in Georgia, but when we had to fly up to Atlanta to interview a subject at a county jail everywhere smelled liked weed. The rental car, the street, the Hooters near the hotel. Everywhere smelled like weed.

Promises, promises.  What happened to the taco trucks that were supposed to be on every corner?  And now you're promising that the entire state will smell like weed?  When will you deliver on these promises, pearl clutchers?
