Can landlords really decide one way or another- if their tenants can smoke or not?
It really depends on the area where your units are located, but more landlords are banning cigarettes from their units.
There are a lot of reasons for this, of course.
A few years ago, I had to clean up one of my units where the previous two tenants were heavy smokers, and it was a whale of a job.
There were nicotine stains all over the walls. I cringed to think what those cigarettes were doing to the inside of those men’s lungs. One of the men has since died, I found out.
Then there’s the smell.
Personally, I’m not bothered too much by the odor of cigarettes. I may be in the minority, but I’ve always liked the smell of smoking, although I have never smoked myself.
But the smoking debate continues.
Some samples from some of the Fark readers:
"This is bad news for Obama…."
"How can there be a price on ruining your health?
"Good. My social liberalism goes out the window on this.Irrational, I know.
But I’m stickin’ with it!"
