Shirley Steinbach Quoted in Wall Street Journal Article on Marijuana Use in Community Associations
Attorney Shirley Steinbach was quoted in the Wall Street Journal in an article on how community associations and municipalities are dealing with the legalization of recreational and medicinal marijuana use.
In the article, Shirley says many condo boards have written rules that ban smoking in general-use areas or on the property as a whole, but that they mainly focus on tobacco.
“Marijuana often is not addressed at all [in condo documents]. It’s a nascent issue. Now with decriminalization, it’s more common to see its use in the open,” she said in the article.
