“Dear PoPville,

Looking for advice on pot smoke from my neighbor’s rowhouse getting into mine. My kids and I are obviously home and so are the neighbors. I mentioned to them that I really smell their pot, and while they were polite, they basically stated they planned to smoke at home everyday while they, too, are at home. It’s their way of coping. They asked it it’s better if they smoke outside, but that comes in our house too.

Given that it’s legal, any ideas on how to handle this? Is it the cost of city living? Any ideas on appealing to them given little kids will be home smelling their pot while “distance learning” from dcps? Or anyone have luck with febreeze or an air purifier or something getting rid of the pot smell at all?
