Why you may not be able to light up in your own own apartment once recreational marijuana use becomes legal

Chicago Tribune - 08-09


Recreational marijuana use will be legal in Illinois come Jan. 1, but apartment and condominium dwellers still could face restrictions when lighting up at home. Although there are many ways to use cannabis, smoking has emerged as a particular concern in multi-unit housing complexes, where wafting smoke and odors are hard to contain. The bill signed by Gov. J.B. Pritzker earlier this summer includes specific provisions that allow condo associations to prohibit on-site smoking, including in individual units.
