    @Tunacupcakes: Unfortunately you’re probably going to get some variation of creepy neighbors anywhere you live. I also live near a college in an apartment complex, and I know for a fact my neighbors were not only arrested but kicked out for their weed and “hot boxing” their storage unit. The plus side to me is….they CAN get kicked out, whereas in a house, no one’s really going to “kick them out.” Lol.

    Sucks, but it is hard to get away from stuff like that completely (if your renting)… pot really isn’t a “hard drug”.  Good luck and I hope it doesn’t cause you problems.

    If they’re doing something illegal, you could always call the cops to come check it out, especially if it starts to be dangerous (like if this guy was abusive to his gf or if you feel unsafe like he’s trying to inappropriately gain entry to your house, etc.)

    @Tunacupcakes: ahhhh! yeah that is scary!  Maybe if the complex is big you can switch units?? I am not sure how that works…. but maybe worth asking?

    I would be personally creeped out enough to attempt to find a new place to live, or at least talk to management about it.  I have no problem with recreational pot use as long as it doesn’t affect me, but it sounds like your neighbors situation is starting to affect your living siutation…and that isn’t cool.

    @Tunacupcakes:

    Totally agree. Pot isn’t a big deal to me. We have a real problem with meth in our county 🙁

    Plus, you never know if they don’t “pay” the people they get the drugs from…they could come to collect payment, and they might not be too friendly about it.  That is always a concern too.

    A bunch of potheads live above me. I’m in college, so it’s not that weird. I’m actually really good friends with them. 🙂

    i’d be fine with pot, but harder drugs do creep me out. it does sound like it’s getting to be a bad situation…

    I agree that there is a difference between Potheads and those that use other drugs.

    Potheads, eh they usually keep to themselves and aren’t terribly harmful.

    But ANYONE that does anything other than pot. Snorting pills, coke, ice, etc.

    1. Hardcore drugs are more expensive, thus leading to more money being used up. Leading to stealing, selling sex, scary hardcore drug dealers, making meth in the apt, etc.

    2. Fights between tenents because of drugs with the use of weapons increase exponentially.

    3. Lack of care of the apartment and surroundings increases.

    4. Probability of unsavory peoples at/around said apartment increases.

    It’s just not good all around. I’d be concerned if you KNOW they are doing drugs other than pot.

    (These statements are generalizations, but somewhat accurate.)

    I’d be a hypocrit if I said I’d have an issue living next door to some pot smokers but it seems like your neighbors may be on some harder stuff. I personally wouldn’t want to be around that. Since you do live in an apartment complex, file a complaint with the landlord or property manager. As long as they’re not slum-lords, they won’t want that stuff being done in their apartment.

    @Tunacupcakes: yeah.. the out of 6-month leases thing doesn’t make much sense…   Maybe sublease?
