Just to clarify, are you renting part of an apartment complex or do you own a home?

Contact the landlord or call the cops.

That sucks!  I do think it’s kind of adorable that you didn’t recognize the smell of weed 😉

Seriously though, I once lived in an apartment with the worst neighbors.  Not only were they super loud and disruptive, but they smoked a ton.  Our extra bedroom became unuseable because it smelled like cigarettes and weed constantly.

I would call the landlord first and tell them what you suspect.  If all else fails, call the cops.  I would have if I wasn’t slightly afraid of my old neighbors.

I’m surprised that your nostrils are burning…any chance that they’re growing? Also, do you share a wall or something with them, how might the smoke be getting in? Do you still smell it when your windows are closed? 

Could you leave an anonymous note saying that their pot smoke is VERY pungent and to be more careful as it’s bothering you AND if the wrong person smelled it they may have a problem on their hands? If it’s illegal, especially enforced, this could be more than enough to get them to be more aware.

As a pot smoker, it’s very difficult to smell your own pot smoke. Maybe if they realized how obvious it is they will be more careful to contain it. It doesn’t take much more than using a vaporizer or smoking in the bathroom with the fan on and a carbon filter contraption to exhale out of. 

I don’t know what good calling the cops would do. Here they would just chuckle and tell you to have a nice day. Plus, I donno, a little weed could ruin someone’s life if a cop woke up on the wrong side of the bed. I’d leave them a note, then speak to the landlord. If your partner is comfortable with it, he could maybe go speak to them?

I don’t know where you live, but where I am there is actually a plant called skunk weed.  It grows in similar shape to a fern, but with broader leaves and large, stinky, yellow flowers.  Once they start growing for the year, they are extrememly pungent!! Do you think you have anything like that by your house?

turnanewleaf:  Isn’t “skunk weed” just like shitty weed and not a type of weed with a skunky scent?

LilRhodyGem:  Most folks I know or have heard from are referring to skunk weed as really good stuff. The stinkier (skunkier), the better! It is also a sativa strain with a particularly strong odor, but when people say skunk they’re usually referring to good high quality stuff. When being grown or smoked, I don’t think there is much of a difference in the scent between strains. It’s more about how pungent it is cured and out of the bag.

Bad weed is referred to as ditch weed or schwag.
