Legal Question

Asked on: 6/29/13, 10:13 pm

I live in an apartment complex in aurora il. I am a single mom with two kids. Recently I haven't iced a strong odor coming from my bathroom. It clearly smells like marjuana. I contacted my leasing company and they have indicated that they cannot do anything because it is a private matter. They said we Ned to contact the police when we smell it. We have done this and the officers did indicate to us it clearly is marijuana smell. They knocked on the neighbors door (we only have one in our part of the complex) but they didn't respond or answer their door. I am now afraid for my health since the smell is really strong and I have chronic asthma and I am also concerned for my dis safety since our neighbors will think we reported them. What is our rights? Can we leave? Can we break our lease without being penalized.?
