    Have SO talk to them to try to fix the pot smell problem.

    Cut your losses and move even though SO doesn't want to.

    The smell of pot is a phobia of mine, no doubt. My brother and mother are schizophrenic and I have a fear of becoming schizophrenic one day like them. My brother was and is a huge pot head and I feel that contributed to him becoming schizophrenic. Marijuana has been shown in studies to cause psychotic breaks in people with and without a history of schizophrenia.

    Anyway, I am scared they could potentially ruin my life by exposing me to this drug. It’s definitely a phobia so it bothers me more than if it just smelled bad.

    I am in no way a stoner or have I been a pot head in the past but I can say that you keep talking about these people like they are absolute crap. The fact of the matter is they have already given up smoking inside which is a big deal to people who smoke. I aggree that you should not have to live in these circumstances as well but I do feel that having your SO tell them to further alter their lifestyle wouldnt be fair to them. As much as I HATE HATE HATE the fact that they are wasting their money on pot over paying for a house for themselves, I feel that they can only change a little bit at a time. You cant expect them to change over night. Smoking (anything) is an addiction. The drug itself is not addicting but the habit of smoking and the feeling it has on your body can lead to it wanting more so it would be hard for them to quit cold turkey. I feel that they should slowly stop smoking such and such amount of weed. Another option they can think of doing is smoking a lower quality marijuana which would cost half of what they would normally pay. Like I said I think its crappy of them to be losing their house but not their habit but breaking a habitual use of anything is a bite and they will have to work on it slowly.

    @ieatunicorns:  So if you lived in a house with someone who used vanilla air fresheners you would move? I think that’s ridiculous.

    Maybe if they stopped smoking so much they could afford their home. Intervention, anyone? I used to share my home with my brother who is a huge pot smoker and I’m okay with others doing it, but I just don’t enjoy it. I had a hard time with the environment it created. We set strict rules and boundaries since I paid the largest portion of the bills but if you have an opportunity to move out I would. It will be better for your marriage in the long run.
