I know I've complained before about my "new" neighbors and their heavy use of marijuana. Well today it's gotten even worse. They're smoking so heavily in THEIR apartment that it has now permeated MY apartment and I've had a sore throat all day. I called the police to get some guidance on how to proceed because the managers are idiots and wouldn't answer my question a month ago.
Here's my letter, with a few edits to keep personal information private:
(formatted to the right alignment) February 24, 2013
Dear Management of [Name of] Apartments,
I am writing to you today to formally complain about the profligate use of marijuana by the occupants of apartment [apartment number] since they assumed occupancy of said apartment. The smell of something dying in the hallway multiple times a week makes me sick to my stomach, and is now affecting my health. As of today, Sunday, February 24, 2013, the smell from their smoking is invading my dwelling.
According to the information on your own website, smoking in the apartments is not permitted. (screenshot taken and will be included with this letter) While it does not concern me what one does behind their own closed doors, is does concern me when those actions begin to affect me and my family. This heavy use of marijuana is now affecting me and my family behind my closed doors.
Before writing this letter I spoke to an officer of the [city I live in] Police Department and was advised by them to treat any and all marijuana use the same as if it were cigarettes. Therefore, I am choosing to write you this letter of complaint.
I would like a written response with a plan of action for what you plan to do about this violation of policy within 30 days of the date above.
Thank you for your time,
[my apartment number]
[my phone number]
What should be added/edited to make this as effective as I can make it?
