Old & In the Way
Are you saying there is no policy that prohibits smoking? And, are you in a "legal" state?There's no smoking policy in the building but I don't want any trouble. I don't vape in a room that borders any other unit, but clearly that's not enough. I'm dabbing for now with a Sai and a Smoke Buddy and will be getting an XMAX V3 PRO to see if it's more controllable. Long-term, I want to make sure I have a nice row of ducks.
If so, then this is about changing times and peoples' reluctance to change with the times.
I think @florduh's argument, using the example of awful cooking fumes and living in proximity to neighbors is spot on. As a vegetarian, I can say that I am at times offended by the smell of searing flesh wafting in my window coming off my neighbor's barbeques etc., but I don't tell them to take it elsewhere, and I'm not gonna let them tell me not to vape in my backyard which I do with discretion; not if children around, etc.
Your neighbors are not getting contact highs from you unit, they are simply being intolerant. If they were getting a buzz, they probably wouldn't bother you!
You could easily claim some physical ailment or condition that is alleviated by cannabis? and tell them to fuck off? politely, of course.
