I would recommend never writing anything defamatory. Something like "Could you please stop smoking so much weed so I can sleep." is probably fine.

Always keep it as hearsay. I don't know much about the laws where you are, but you never know how these neighbor spats can spiral to ridiculous levels. Last thing you want is to be sitting in some court where this guy is suing you for harassment and he has a pile of threatening letters as evidence.

This is great advice.  Part of me is extremely resentful that "I have to deal with this"

Isn't this pretty much the same problem that people have had for decades with ethnic cooking?  If you have a multicultural city, you'll have a little bit of everything in your building and every day you will smell different cooking than what you eat.  There's never been much you can do about it, right?

Probably a little different in that weed has a bit more chemicals in it which is why people smoke it in the first place

Start cook spicy Chongqing hotpot for dinner everyday. Maybe your neighbor will be the one complaining :)

Yeah the chemicals won't amount to anything unless they are highly concentrated -- you don't even get much of a contact high if you are in the same room when a joint is being smoked, let alone in another apartment.  The odour is definitely a real thing though.  In my neighbourhood, I can smell both the pot smoke and some of the stronger ethnic cooking as I walk down the street, which is a full 50 feet away from houses and apartments.  You can't really get away from it.  If you like it, great, but if you don't like it, there's not much to do about it, other than move.

Many years ago, I read an ad on Cragslist, going like this:

"NAG, NAG, NAG : HD Fat Boy for sale - mint condition - for sale - cheap! - I have to let it go, because of FAT, NAGGING wife... Please call me at at xxx-xxxx to give me an offer." <Picture of the very nice bike attached>.

- - - o 0 o - - -

Since then, I've always been thinking about what would happen if this guy back then had a subscription to Craigslist laying around in the restroom, if she was reading his stuff in the restroom ...

Somehow, it's all about peaceful co-existence ... -The higher the local population density is, the more demanding it is!

You start with buying a home, and you may end up selling the neighbours. [- to the next greater fool?]
