PHA Can Terminate Tenancy for Marijuana Possession
Facts: A PHA terminated a resident’s tenancy after determining that she had breached its rules and regulations. In May 2011, the police executed a search warrant for the resident’s unit. The search warrant was obtained based on two incidents where an informant observed an unidentified male bagging crack-cocaine for distribution and a firearm. During the search, police found approximately 47 plastic bags of marijuana, a starter pistol, business records of narcotics transactions, and two plastic bags containing smaller plastic bags.
