Can you please tell me what state you are in? It's not showing on my side. Also, is there a clause in the lease that prohibits marijuana use in the building? (This is a separate issue from state law). Thanks.

I am sorry for your trouble. You could try to use it as a basis to get out of the lease but probably not as a basis for a lawsuit against the apartment complex.
