When I signed the lease at our apartment, I never signed an addendum that said I could not smoke marijuana inside of our apartmentâ€¦ I never signed any paperwork that said I would not smoke nicotine inside of the apartment either! Still, our property owner tried to evict myself and others because a friend complained about the stink of marijuana.
I was inside of our beach house smoking when the problem occurred.
I had the window open so I could see the street. I was expecting a delivery from the marijuana dispensary. I needed a view of the street so I could click the button & open the gate when the marijuana delivery driver arrived. I was smoking a blunt & the friend must have called the copsâ€¦ There was a knock on our door & I thought it was the marijuana delivery repair driver. It turned out to be the local sheriff’s office. The officer said there was a complaint about marijuana smoke. I apologized & provided to close the window. The cops asked myself and others if I was using marijuana legally & I showed them our medical marijuana card. They thanked myself and others & told myself and others to have a wonderful afternoon. The next afternoon there was a notice of eviction on our front door. I went straight to the manager to demand a reason for the eviction letter. She stated marijuana use & I abruptly recommended the property owner that she was violating our rights according to the Americans with Disabilities Act. I had a letter from our dentist & a medical card for marijuana. There was nothing she could do to make myself and others leave because I was using marijuana.
