What do I say if a tenant complains that marijuana is now legal and they should be allowed to smoke?

As with many legal questions, the answer depends on the situation. If your lease prohibits smoking or has an anti-crime or drug clause, the legality of marijuana use on a state level is irrelevant; you should be able to enforce the lease and prohibit smoking in the unit.If the lease does not have those types of clauses, and you wish to prevent the tenant from smoking marijuana, you should talk to an attorney familiar with your state and municipality landlord-tenant laws about the lease in question to find the best solution.
