Medical marijuana patients that rent their home would need the permission of the property owner to grow or smoke marijuana on the property, under legislation introduced in Lansing.

Senate Republican Rick Jones of Grand Ledge is sponsoring the measure. He says the reasoning behind the bill is because when you grow marijuana, it puts moisture into the walls and sometimes destroys the property.

Jones also says if the smoke is traveling throughout the apartments, it can bother the other residents.

The bill was sent to the Senate Government Operations Committee.
