The only way residents of a luxury Boston condo building are going to be getting high from now on is if their apartment is on the top floor.
Despite recreational marijuana being legal in Massachusetts, the condominium trust at the swanky waterfront Residences at The InterContinental has just banned smoking and growing marijuana in the building, the Boston Herald reports, along with vaping, smoking tobacco, and clove and electronic cigarettes.
“It got to be a problem because … it permeates the walls,” trustee Richard Koch said to the Herald. “It’s the annoyance. The condos here cost millions of dollars. You’d rather not have somebody causing some foul odor that you don’t like ending up in your space.”
As for the owners and tenants that might have considered flexing their green thumbs and harvesting their own marijuana, Koch said, “We’re a high-rise building. I don’t think we’re a farming community.”
At least 89 owners of the InterContinental’s 130 condo units approved the measure.
