My name is***** and I will be helping you with your question today. This is for informational purposes only and does not establish an attorney client relationship.
In a state that allows either medical or recreational marijuana to be grown in private residences, a landlord can prohibit renters from growing pot by including the rule as a clause in the lease. If the issue comes up after the lease has been signed without such a clause, the landlord would likely need to rely on an anti-drug or crime policy that hopefully was included in the lease.
The landlord would then need to send written notice of the lease breach, citing the appropriate clause. If the renter continues to grow plants after receiving the written notice, the landlord may attempt to evict the tenant.
If no such clause exists, the landlord may have difficulty preventing renters from legally growing marijuana during the term of the lease. If the landlord is unwilling to enforce any lease provisions and there is nothing else in the lease to help you regarding this, there probably us not much you can do. You could speak to the landlord and see if there is a different mobile home you could move into with a different roommate without this issue, there is nothing you can do legally without sufficient language in the lease.
