@TwoStatesBride:  IMO he’s being inconsiderate. Maybe he’s just that vapid that he’s not aware… but I don’t think giving him a polite heads up is out of line at all. If he gets offended, oh well.

I would ask him kindly  to move a little because the smell is going in your house. I don’t think he’ll be upset. As a weed smoker, I wouldn’t be.

I think your planned approach is perfect. Casual, but clear in what you would like him to do.

He probably has no idea he’s bothering anyone. Just politely ask him to move to another area when he smokes because you’re super sensitive to it.

Really, you shouldn’t even have to preface it with “I’m cool with you smoking weed”, because it sounds kind of contrived, like you’re really NOT cool with it.

I second @bebero:. Don’t scheme or do anything else in the first instance other than to ask him politely to move! It’ll only come back to bite you on the arse if you do. Can you imagine how telling his SO could go, in the worst instance?

What if she turns around and says “yeah, I know he smokes, and I make him go outside so it doesn’t damage the soft furnishings. But thanks for telling me that and trying to ruin my relationship. It’s nice to know what my neighbours are really like. What I really don’t get is why it’s any of your ******* business.”

I think you’re right to keep it polite.

@TwoStatesBride:  mention it discreetly and politely. Chances are he’ll appreciate that you came directly to him instead of calling the cops.

@bebero:  Agreed as long as you approach me in a considerate & rational manner, I’ll handle it the same way. 

For the record and a little off-topic, I loved the smell before I even smoked. Ha. XD
