I am good at internet research, but I am not an attorney. This answer is based solely on internet sources that I have not verified as to accuracy. Therefore, you are advised to consult an attorney for more information if you are a landlord.

In Zillow’s article “Marijuana and Rental Properties: What Landlords and Property Managers Should Know,” information is provided at https://www.zillow.com/rental-manager/resources/marijuana-rental-landlord-laws/
