My lease stated "no marijuana allowed." I'm a MJ medical patient, do I have to stay silent? or are my rights as valid?

Aberdeen, WA |

The lease doesn't directly refer to medical use or 'legal growing.' The leasing agent is ready to evict known patients in my impression. All other local rental agencies state the same in their terms and I make about as much as a McDonald's employee as a disabled ex-marine. I'm also permanently mentally disabled.

  1. Since rental units are private property, the owners probably have a right to require or prohibit smoking or drug use on the premises. Perhaps if you keep looking you can find a place that permits it.
