Resident 1088077

Verified Resident 2020 - 2022

11/23/2022

I love my apartment, the park-like setting (there might be a couple of trees that might need to come down). What I don't like is that there is so much smoking (marijuana) from neighboring apartments and this is a smoke-free building. There is even a maintenance guy, who is a long-term smoker, who got mad at me because I called during the weekend and he didn't want to come over, then came and said he couldn't smell anything. He didn't want to come into my apartment to confirm the smell, then did and said he could smell the laundry in my tub but couldn't smell the marijuana. When I mentioned him being a smoker he got angry, said "that has nothing to do with it," even though I was trying to explain there is substantial evidence supporting long-term smokers have decreased olfactory sense. He even said loudly, "You do realize people can buy this stuff anywhere now." I replied that "this is a smoke-free building, so it doesn't matter that they can buy their stuff anywhere, just that they can't smoke it in this building." He then became loud and angry and I told him he had to leave. I had to keep backing him out of my apartment, saying many times, that he "had to leave now." So, I love my apartment, the grounds. I don't like the smoking in my building. I don't smoke (I can't due to health reasons). I work part-time and can't afford to lose my job (with the city of Battle Creek) because I smell like marijuana (it gets in my clothes, my hair, even inside my car). Nor do I appreciate not being able to sleep because my neighbors keep smoking all night long (mostly during the weekend) and don't enjoy checking my mail with the smell of marijuana from that floor. I don't know how our USPS mail carrier can stand it. I do have to say that the manager, Justin, seems very responsive to my concerns. Regarding the question of security - the only security is to not talk with my neighbors about their smoking.
