“They smoke pot indoors at all times of day and night, and whenever they do, it basically hotboxes my house”

“Dear PoPville,

My family has lived in our rowhouse for ten years. Recently, new neighbors moved in next door. They smoke pot indoors at all times of day and night, and whenever they do, it basically hotboxes my house. I don’t know exactly how the smoke gets in — we have an insulated attic and newish windows etc, but it smells extremely strong in the house and lingers. I’ve asked the neighbors politely about four times not to smoke indoors, most recently yesterday. My younger daughter has asthma,

and I think it aggravates her asthma to be exposed to the second hand smoke. I’ve told the neighbor this, the patriarch has said “I understand about the kids, I’ll stop,” except then he doesn’t. I’m sure it violates their rental agreement, but the landlord doesn’t seem to care at all.

I’m not sure what to do. We already have three HEPA filters and whenever the pot smell starts we turn them on full blast. I’m open to any ideas! The situation is really making my whole family miserable.
