pothead

My neighbour one below me smokes a fair number of joints pretty much every night of the week.

Not so much a complaint, but GRRRRRR

Re: pothead

When he's out, drill a few holes through your floor and his ceiling.

Whoever said 2nd-hand smoke was bad for you.

Re: pothead

Mine does too. Of course he can smoke what ever he likes in his garden so I won't complain (and he seems unwilling to saying "gruezi" when he sees me anyway) but since he moved in I have to keep the bedroom window closed and I'm an open window sleeper really

..as long as it is a legal substance, which in your neighbor's case isn't.

Re: pothead

I don't care so much what people do... But when my house smells like pot, which I do not smoke, then it just very irritating :s

I am also a very 'open window, open door' guy

Re: pothead

I'd complain directly to him, and then to your landlord if that doesn't work.. It's cool to be a laid-back dude but second hand smoke sucks.

Re: pothead

Your neighbour shares his joints with you and you don't have to pay for it?
Others would go miles for such an opportunity

Re: pothead

That would annoy me no end . I find the smell of pot to be worse than that of cigarettes.

Can't you talk to him?

Re: pothead

Go speak to him if really is bothering you.

You are unlikely to get a bad reaction, as he will know it could lead to legal issues, and he going to be chilled right

So...........I shall expect to hear from you tonight perhaps

Re: pothead

For sure that would annoy me as well. Like the others I would talk to him or the landlord. Or maybe just leave a friendly note on his door step if he isnt the talking type..

Re: pothead

Call the cops if the landlord doesn't react quickly. You have rights and I'd put them ahead of the weed-head.

Re: pothead

so Bean if its not so much of a complaint then why are you posting this on here?

would you rather:

1. have a quite dude living below you who smokes pot and keeps to himself and have the occasional pot smoke slip through youre window.

or

2. A drunken dude constantly making lots of noise late at night with music turned up to the max.

Re: pothead

It would freaking annoy me too, and I would go knock on his door and politely let him know.

Re: pothead

funny how all the people posting from Swiss-German areas are saying call the cops on his ass, and the people living in Swiss-Romande are far cooler about it.....

Neither, really, thanks- why does it have to be either?

Re: pothead

I would just burn some incense or get one of those 'wick air' smelly things that you just plug in. They're really good.

Don't go calling the cops. There is enough of that busy-body bulls*+% here already.

Be thankful you have a stoner as a neighbour and not a heroin junkie or a raging alco like the others have already pointed out...

False dichotomy.

"cool" is a subjective descriptor. I don't care what you do, until it starts making my apartment stink.

See above re: false dichotomy. I vote for bringing in the 5-0.
