Hello Professor Lee,
Are there any strains of marijuana that don’t reek? If not how can I control the stinky odor? My neighbour is an asshole.

All strains of marijuana will emit odor, some way more than others. A lot of pot users believe that a stronger smell equals a stronger high. This is just a myth the smell has nothing to do with the cannabinoid levels, but because the customer is always right breeders have bred plants to have stronger and stronger scents. Ironically this makes it very difficult to grow something that you’re trying to hide.
There are a few seed banks that advertise lower scent level plants like the Low Ryder series. So there are some strains out there for you to try it just takes some time shopping the internet. Just remember that low odor doesn’t mean zero odor. You should still take steps to mask giveaway scents leeching out from your garden. When employed, carbon filters, negative ion generators, and multiple air fresheners will make a significant impact on even the smelliest of gardens.
As for the asshole neighbor my suggestion is to try to ignore them and don’t offer anything for them to complain about. I spent years putting up a persona that shielded me from suspicion. It’s all part of playing the subterfuge game.
