I’d just make sure the weed is thoroughly cleared out of the house to avoid possible liability about another guest discovering remnants. Baking soda and leaving the drawer open in the sun should clear out the odor.
Otherwise… not really much else to do, no? I personally wouldn’t call the cops because that’s just a troublesome can of worms that to me, isn’t worth it. And I don’t think I’d call AirBnB or leave it in the review because the guest could just as easily claim, “no, it belonged to the host; not me.” Or, “it’s not mine.” Those ends won’t result in anything positive.
But hey, others might have a different idea worth considering. Just me personally.
I wiped out the drawer and used some pledge, Ill attack it with baking soda or something a little more strong if it doesn’t dissipate soon.
Didn’t even think about taking it to the police but rather if AirBnB would ban their account, if I could collect on security deposit, if there was some policy as a host with AirBnB I wasnt aware of etc.
My only drug of choice is coffee, but I booked a guy’s apartment on Air. I was looking for the remote in the living room and opened the side drawer, only to find the guy’s weed stash. I laughed but only thought about letting him know so he could hide it better from guests in the future.
I agree, it wouldn’t be a big deal to me. I’d much rather my guests were stoned than drunk! But the fact is it is illegal in a lot of places so I kind of get the op’s concern. Where I live a little bit for personal use is often taken quite seriously by the law, unfortunately
