Changing Marijuana Laws in MA Could Result in New Condominium Rules

The Commonwealth is set to allow recreational pot smoking in July. Given its pungent nature, the activity is likely to set neighbor against neighbor in some densely built associations – even more so than cigarette smoking did when its social acceptability was downgraded over the last decades.  Some community associations are preparing themselves by drafting amendments to their governing documents that prohibit or control pot smoking, as described in a recent Boston Globe article on the subject.  If readers have questions about how their association can deal with the issue, they should contact Attorney Scott J. Eriksen of our firm.
