Just because it’s legal doesn’t mean tenants may smoke it; but medical patients should not be prohibited, says Rose Law Group Partner Ryan Hurley

The party may be over for some California stoners before it’s officially begun.

With speculation mounting that the Golden State will legalize recreational marijuana, a California lawmaker has introduced a bill that would allow landlords to ban tenants from smoking weed within their own homes, according to The Sacramento Bee.

What a buzzkill! But the legislation wouldn’t just affect those lighting up for fun—it would also ban the use of medical marijuana, which is legal in the state.

Continued:

“It is understandable that some may seek to provide landlords the ability to prevent smoking of recreational marijuana on their property similar to the landlords right to prevent tobacco smoking. However, it is unacceptable if this effort attempts to prevent patients from using their medication without reasonable accommodations.”
