Neighbours' pot smoking drives tenant out

Editor: I need help.

I live in Langley City, in a top-floor apartment. My new neighbours are chronic pot smokers. My suite is constantly filled with marijuana smoke. The smoke is so bad I will have to remove my five-year-old daughter from the suite.

I called the police and they told me this: They can’t do a damn thing if they are doing it in their suite. Yet officials tell tobacco smokers they will be fined if they smoke inside buildings, or near doorways?

This downtown area is a slum, because no one wants to infringe on the criminals’ rights. We are the last of the decent law-abiding tenants in this building, and I will be looking elsewhere to call home.

I can’t stand to see known drug dealers and crackheads taking over this beautiful building.
