B.C. landlords want to weed out pot smoking in rentals

LandlordBC asks province to ban tenants from growing or smoking pot in rental buildings once it becomes legal.

LandlordBC would like to see the province give landlords the ability to ban the recreational smoking and growing of marijuana in rental housing.
