I know the neighbors in the apartment next to mine smoke weed, because I smell it all day and all night.
We don’t have medical or recreational marijuana legalized in this state, so I know they are breaking the law. Sometimes I want to call the police to report the behavior, but I don’t want the neighbors to find out that it was me. The police say you can report a crime anonymously, but they also record the number and ask for a name. The neighbors always have sketchy looking characters in and out of the apartment all night long. I told my landlord about the weed smell, but he shrugged his shoulders. I think the landlord probably smokes weed too, because his eyes are always red. He told me that the area was their private space and he could not evict them just because I thought I smelled marijunana. We live right next to each other and our ventilation ductwork must be shared. At night, the weed smell is intense. If I stuck my head inside the ductwork, I might catch a contact buzz. I hate the skunky, pungent odor coming from their place. My bedroom is starting to smell like an ashtray because of the smoke in the next apartment. I have two more months left on my lease and I was going to renew for another year. The prices are low and utilities like water, sewer, and gas are included. Unfortunately, I’ll probably leave if the weed smell continues to creep into my apartment.
