Maui County Mayor Michael Victorino answers some of the most-asked questions submitted to his staff.

Q: I live in an apartment with people living above and on the side of our unit. We could smell a strong scent of marijuana that started a week ago and it’s been happening almost daily. It’s sometimes twice to three times a day and lasts for at least three to seven minutes at a time. We can’t conclude where it’s coming from but it goes to our bathrooms every time it happens. Do I have the right to call police and ask them to investigate if it is legit or actually a pot session? I’m just concerned about our health. Please advise.

A:  Mahalo for your question and I am sorry for your situation.

You may want to first contact your landlord or apartment manager to make a complaint regarding this issue before going to police. However, you can call the Maui Police Department’s nonemergency phone line at 244-6400 and officers can follow-up to see if the people have a medical marijuana card or if it’s an illegal activity.
