Prospective tenant wearing cap with marijuana leaf motif to showing

Good evening all.  So they say if you listen, people will tell you who they really are.  Well, how about if a prospective tenant shows up wearing sunglasses at night and a cap with a big marijuana leaf printed on the front and all over the sides?  Think he could be telling me something??  I've already been down that road with pot smokers.  Last tenants claimed they "did not smoke anything at all" but when we posted their 3-day notice, the pot smell was lurking out from under the front door.  Upon return of the property, it was clear they had been heavily smoking pot inside.  We had been inside the property several months before to meet with them and did not detect it then - they were burning incense (should have been a clue).  I think they smoked inside since they had nothing to loose at that point (stopped paying rent).  It's a shame since they have 2 young children.  Would have never guessed people would smoke pot in the house with kids there, especially with one that has asthma and allergies.  Guess I was wrong.  

Anyhow, gut feeling tells me this is a preview of the future.  Also, told me money is not an issue but in the same breath asked if they could give less than 3 month's rent to move in (I had already explained the requirements).  Another red flag.  Sadly, this is becoming  all too familiar...  Next...
