  • CONT...
    they are about 16 and my nieces and nephews are always over here and hear them.. we already told the office about it but nothing has been done. wth?? what would you do? its VERY irritating. yes we can shut our window and we do when it occurs, butwe shouldnt have to if they wouldnt smoke weed in front of our apt.

    ps i dont have a problem with weed as long as it doesnt effect me or anything i have nothing to do with it but i dont like when its flying throughout my house. i do not smoke though and dont associate with anyone that does.

  • Try talking to them, if they know that there will be a baby coming they MAY try to tone it down you never know lol. Most apartment complexes have noise ordinances so call the landlord, I've known a few people who've actually been kicked out for not following noise rules. Lastly you can always call the cops, especially when the pot-heads come round. We own our home, but 8 young men decided to rent the 3-bedroom-house next to ours. Me and the old woman across the street had the cops out here every weekend, and then some. They didn't stick around long.

  • its kind of hard living in an apartment you are going to incounter that problem...if you think its a serious problem i would ask them if they could just find a diff. place to hang out given your situation and if worse comes to worse try telling the office again or maybe even the police since what they are doing is ilegal

  • I wouldn't confront them, they are teenagers enough said. I would talk to your landlord about it and if you know who the kids are he will talk to the parents I'm sure ,or next time and every other time just call the police. There is no time on what is considered disturbing the peace.

  • Where I live there is a city curfew of 10pm-6am. During those hours you have every right to call the police, no matter how many times it takes. I had the same problem with punks who moved in across from us. Also, most importantly, keep track of dates and times you make every complaint to the management and police so you have a record. If nothing happens, go to the property management company and show them the history of actions/complaints. It took me many many phone calls, but they finally got evicted after about 6 months of complaining.

  • Call the police; there has to be something that can be done about this. Don't these kids have anything better to do with their time? I never remeber acting the way alot of these kids do when I was their age. Tell the police that you are pregnant, they are smoking weed (which is illegal) and maybe they can scare them enough so that they won't come back. Good luck

  • I would start calling the cops. That's just ridiculous. You should be able to walk out your front door or open a window without listening to that or having your home full of smoke. If that doesn't do anything, I would consider moving, even though it would be a pain in the ass. Maybe you could just move to another apt? But I would def call the cops first. Tell them they are smoking pot and drinking out in a public area and they should hopefully deal with it.
