First things first…the law says we have to keep it inside. That means in your home or on your property. It is still illegal to smoke cannabis in public. Nothing changes there, its always been the understanding, however we know that we take it outside. To the park, to the woods, to the beach, on road trips and sometimes…while walking around town. Now, no one likes having cigarette smoke blown in their face while trying to enjoy some fresh air so we cannabis smokers need to remember to show everyone the same courtesy. Apartment living in Portland is prevalent, a lot of us live within very close proximity of our neighbors, and not everyone is Cannabis friendly. And although we will soon begin to smell the sweet sweet sinsemilla wafting through the air, we still need to be courteous of those living on either side or above us, Smoke travels upward remember. Apartment exhaust fans like those found in the bathroom or kitchen often draw air from one unit to another and can assist in carrying your cannabis fragrance throughout your neighbors’ apartment.
