Yeah, your recommendation doesn't protect you from eviction in the least. In the past evil landlords have evicted disabled patients because they smoked/grew in their units against the lease.
I wouldn't try it at all. ESPECIALLY if your other roommates are against you doing it. It's one thing to thumb your nose at the landlord, it's quite another to disrespect your roomies wishes.
NOW, if you move into a new place and the lease HAS no drug clauses, there's nothing they can do. My new apartment has no drug clauses on the lease at all, it's a very simple agreement, but alas, I killed my plant. Unfortunately most landlords use a boiler plate lease agreement from the apartment associations, and they all have the drug policy. Perhaps if you're up front with potential landlords during the interview process, you could find a sympathetic owner who's willing to strike that clause.
Fortunately the DEA has stopped threatening to seize property where patient grows are happening, and since the various communities are basically telling patients to grow their own, a small personal grow isn't threatenting at all anymore. BUT definitely don't grow more than you're allowed, and don't even think about diversion.
