There are currently 20 states where marijuana has been legalized in some way, shape or form. Even though these states have enacted “legal use” in their laws, terms and conditions; they all possess very specific conditions upon its use and cultivation. The federal government has not approved marijuana’s legal use.
One of the “sticky” situations is the use of medical marijuana. Many states permit its use and the landlord may get stuck in the middle by preventing medical use. Once again, it is imperative that if a landlord wants to enact complete prohibition of pot and its derivatives, proceed with caution and be familiar with the ever changing climate of this hot topic.
The disputes and matters currently being debated are and will have an effect on the landlord, tenant and marijuana use. Make sure that you understand the laws in your state. Whatever your own ideas and beliefs are surrounding the use of marijuana are irrelevant in staying in compliance with regards to landlord tenant law.
