Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
nothing has happened but am asking what my liability would be IF drug use does occur and is brought to the attention of law enforcement
I suspect strongly that drug USE will occur...and the occupant eacknowledged that he sold marijuana in another state within the last year. Would I still be liable if I discovered that pot is being used but was not aware that it was beind sold, if in fact it was. thank you.
just to be clear: if i know he is using pot but dont that KNOW he is selling it, are you saying that if the law becomes aware that he is selling it before I become aware, then my assets could be taken away because of my prior knowledge that he was USING pot?
