    I am very glad about the rights of those growing and smoking the pot for 'medical reasons'
    what about my rights not to smell this shit on the street or in my house from someone growing or smoking it next door?

    Simple answer - health concerns trump your rights not to be inconveniced by the smell of weed. And, if you think weed stinks, trying living near a slaughter house / meat processing plant that butchers hogs. We have that situation in Winnipeg. I'd prefer the weed.

    I am however curious how landlords and real estate investors will deal with tenants that want to operate a grow operation in a rental property. Will insurance companies still insure the property? Will tenants pay for any damages that occur such as mold clean-up? And on the rights issue, what about the landlord's / owner's rights to maintain a safe and respectable property? Does a tenant's right to smoke and grow weed overrule the property owner's rights?

    After my response to the other commenter above, I have a feeling which way the wind is blowing on my own questions as well.
