Do you smoke cannabis? IF YES, WHERE DO YOU SMOKE IT? Most often, the answer would be within a private area where y ou are not in view of the general public. But w hat if your landlord does not allow smoking cannabis in the building? Can you get evicted for smoking weed? It’s no secret that the recreational and medicinal use of cannabis in the state of California is legal. In fact, California is home to the nation’s largest legal pot market. But still, many cannabis users run afoul of state and federal laws, which puts them in a dilemma of how and where to consume cannabis legally.

If you are a medical marijuana enthusiast and are looking t o rent an apartment or home, you must be wondering if you can legally smoke it in your home. Well, the answer is not that simple or straightforward. For a cannabis user, renting an apartment is all about the legal agreement you sign with your landlord when moving into it. Landlord-tenant rights, insurance policies, and obligations are less about your landlord’s thoughts on cannabis and more about your agreement policy. Does your landlord have the right to evict you? First of all, it’s important t o understand whether your landlord has the rig ht to evict you. Here, we are talking about a fixed term residential tenancy. Monthly tenancies are not often applicable in such scenarios as landlords do not need a cause to evict tenants.

In contrast, a fixed-term tenancy binds t he tenant and the landlord for a particular time peri od (e.g. 1 year or more ). So ending the lea se prematurely is considered a breach of contract. If the landlord wants to terminate the contract with the tenant, the only option is to provide a 3-day notice. THESE ARE THE TWO TYPES OF 3-DAY NOTICES: Notic e to perf orm covenant or quit Notice to quit The first option gives th e tenant an opportunity to fix the pr oblem, whereas the second required the tenant to leave the premises wit hin 3 days. H owever, to legally evict the tenant with a 3-days notice, the landlord must have a valid reason.

Medical Marijuana Legalization By now, everyone kn ows that medical marijua na is legal at the state level but remains illegal federally. In the state of Calif ornia, medical marijua na is legal but federally, it is considered as a Schedule I drug and can get you in trouble if you are caught smokin g or possessing it.But because of the haze around the fa cts, people often find themselves confused about whether it is safe to consume or possess it in your house. When you are living as a tenant, things may get a little tricky. First, you need to know whether eviction actions fall under state law or federal law. Eviction actions, also known as unlawful detainers, generally fall under the state law which means the state courts usually comply with their state laws.

Secondly, you should know how much cannabis you are allowed to possess. According to California law, you are allowed to possess a certain amount of cannabis if you have a medical marijuana card. However, if you fail to obtain a recommendation, possessing more than an ounce of cannabis becomes illegal. The last thing you should know about whether possessing cannabis illegally is enough to get you evicted from your rented house. In the state of California, a person who possesses 28.5 grams of cannabis is only guilty of an infraction but possessing more than that is a felony according to the Health & Safety Code 11357. Caught! Can You Get Evicted For Smoking Weed? As mentioned earlier, your landlord has the right to ask you to leave the apartment on the basis of a valid cause. Moreover, if your lease agreement has a clause stating that smoking or medical m arijuana is prohibited on the prem ises, you can be evicted if caught smoking cannabis. Having said that, tenants have their own rights which if they feel are getting constricted can take a legal route.
