Rule Full Text

The New York State’s Cannabis Law, also known as the “Marihuana Regulation and Taxation Act” amended the Clean Indoor Air Act of the New York Public Health Law to prohibit the smoking or vaping of cannabis in certain locations. Accordingly, the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene is proposing to similarly amend its rules.

    What are the rules for indoor smoking in residential buildings? Is it legal? We get a strong second-hand Marijuana smoke seeping through the floor and walls from our neighbors downstairs. Both my husband and I are highly sensitive to any type of smoke, and get especially nauseated from the Marijuana habits of our neighbors. Can the city be more explicit and issue proper laws for this kind of smoking — like it is with cigarette smoke — so that the life quality of normal, non-smoking/non-addicted residents is not at risk?
