I'd tell the landlord, and possibly asked to be moved to another apartment.

Move.

Unless you don't mind putting your unborn child at risk.

This is the answer. Tell them if they don't take action, you will lawyer up. I mean, it's there in black and white.

This will probably force them to confront the weed smokers.

Maybe. Personally I hate moving and would rather stay if I was happy with every other aspect of the place. I think it can be fixed, but there will be a little effort involved, and everyone won't like the outcome... but i'm not concerned with whether or not the guilty party is happy with the outcome.

Your choice ultimately, but I wouldn't let them make me go through the monumental task of moving because I was afraid to hurt some feelings.

Lawyering up will require some ongoing record of the problem as well, and you will need to show that you have made an effort with the offending neighbor and the landlord. Police reports couldn't hurt.

Default A little balance in the answer but the bottom line is the same

I think that you should pursue this with the landlord or management company, if for no other reason than it is depriving you and yours of the quiet enjoyment of your residence, which most leases say you are entitled to. But lets be real. You are not going to lose your job over a SMELL.

Your employer, if they detect this smell on your clothes, may require you to take a drug test, but since you are not using, you will obviously pass. You can smell odors at a far less concentration than you would need for this smell to affect your employment.

This is also true for your girlfriend and your baby. While cannabis USE by your baby momma can affect the fetus with some serious side affects, such as low birth weight, premature birth, and a few other things, a smell is not going to be enough to register on a drug test for her or the baby. So don't start panicking and call in the paramedics!

You have the time to deal with this with management/owner, and if they don't respond in the appropriate manner, a letter from an attorney (which will cost very little) should light a fire under them.

I'd move first before involving the police. I wouldn't want anyone with a gun and a badge anywhere near a pregnant woman. This could be very traumatic, with police breaking down doors and who knows what else. Your girlfriend doesn't need all that drama at this time.

The smoke odor eliminator doesn't just mask the odor, it eliminates the odor. I'm guessing it's based on the same scientific principle that baking soda eliminates most bad odors from a refrigerator. It just magically soaks the odor up, like a sponge. Pretty amazing when you think about it that something so cheap can be so powerful. Vinegar is capable of some pretty amazing feats, as well. As is hydrogen peroxide. Vinegar, baking soda, and hydrogen peroxide. Natures miracle household items and they don't cost much more than the containers they come in.

Oh please. Ask someone who doesn't smoke pot or smoke cigarettes. You think a can is going to completely eliminate the highly pungent pot smell from your clothes?

Absolutely. It works for me. I never had any complaints or negative feedback, from anybody, including the times when I have rode in elevators with supervisors at work, after a few tokes at break. I don't smoke all day like most cigarette smokers, but when I do, I spray as soon as i'm done. The smell doesn't have time to linger on and take root in my mobile home or clothing.
