No Smoking Policy
Smoking is prohibited in any area of the property, both private and common, whether enclosed or outdoors. This policy applies to all owners, property staff, applicants, residents, guests, and servicepersons.
"Smoking" shall include the inhaling, exhaling, or carrying of any lighted cigarette, e-cigarette, cigar, pipe, hookah, other tobacco products, marijuana including medical marijuana, herbal smoking products "legal weed" or products known as "bath salts," or other legal or illegal substance.
Please note that the use of illegal or controlled substances is grounds for denial of housing/assistance in accordance with the Quality Work & Housing Responsibility Act (QWHRA). Use of illegal or controlled substances after residency may result in termination of housing assistance and/or eviction as allowed under regulation.
Regardless of the purpose of legalization under state law, the use of marijuana in any form is illegal under the Controlled Substances Act (CSA) and, therefore, is an illegal controlled substance under Section 577 of the Quality Housing and Work Responsibility Act (QHWRA). Based on federal law, new admissions of any marijuana user, including people who use medical marijuana, are prohibited. QHWRA requires that owners/agents establish lease standards that prohibit admission based on the illegal use of controlled substances, including state-legalized marijuana. State laws that legalize medical marijuana directly conflict with QHWRA and thus are subject to federal preemption.
Residents are prohibited from using marijuana (even in a smokeless manner).
