There are a lot of people that break the rules of my apartment complex.
For instance we’re not supposed to have grills of any kind on our balconies or inside of our units.
The mindset is that a grill, whether it’s charcoal or gas, can lead to a serious fire in a multi-story building. I took this for granted when I lived in a dorm room in college. I even had a charcoal grill that I used a couple times despite the rules from the school’s administration. But now that I live in an apartment complex, I realize that it just takes one bad actor to burn down the entire place. Even if we managed to all get out alive, we would all lose our entire lives to one stupid and avoidable mistake. So in that respect, I understand that’s why they don’t want people to be using grills on their balconies. However, if you’re going to allow people to smoke cigarettes on their balconies, it makes absolutely no sense to forbid people from using medical cannabis. There are stupid rules in the bylaws for the apartment complex that make it illegal to smoke marijuana in your room or on your balcony even if you have a medical cannabis card registered with the state. I feel like this is a serious example of discrimination on part of these unscrupulous apartment managers. I just use a vaporizer inside of my unit and give the middle finger to the apartment managers in passing. I really don’t care what they have to say and I’d be willing to take them to court if they ever threaten to throw me out over my medicine. I’m not a recreational cannabis user, I use marijuana for medical purposes. It’s pure discrimination to forbid me from using it in my unit.
