Recreational marijuana has become legal in Massachusetts, but there is one problem mostly for individuals who rent out a condo or apartment.
At the 2016 ballot box, recreational marijuana has become legal, allowing those over 21 to legally purchase and possess marijuana for personal use. The regulations allows homeowners to grow their own plants (6 plants per household and 12 plants, if there is more than one resident).
Now that marijuana is legal, landlords in Massachusetts are become strict on residents who live in apartment building. Landlords have begun to install smoke detectors which identify when someone is smoking weed.
The federal ban on cannabis, when it comes to public housing or apartment building (such as condos), has address the issue that residents who consume federally banned substance when subject to evicted even if its legal in states.
Tenants have complained to landlords about residents smoking weed which the smoke and smell transfers into their apartment's vents.
With lack of privacy and freedom to consume cannabis in your "home", do you think this is a good idea for tenants and landlords?
