In addition to the clean up if you can buy a can of “Ozium” https://www.amazon.com/Ozium-Air-Freshener-Sanitizer-oz/dp/B0143M9KP6
Before you leave for the day just spray a ton of it and the smoke smell will disappear. Used to do it in my car all the time.
I've been in this situation. Unfortunately you seem to be doing everything you really can in this situation. Outside of continuing to talk to your RA (or if there is anyone above them, we had proctors in my dorms). As another mentioned, you might be able to mitigate smells using air freshener (baking soda is a great idea in general for close spaces). When I worked in detailing we used something called Ozium to get really tough scents out. I like this stuff because it's supposed to actually bind to particulate matter, not just cover up the smell.
Try Ozium if you notice that the Febreeze isn't working as it should. I've noticed that it doesn't work to my liking, and Ozium takes the smell away, but leaves a lemon scent.
Ozium air purifier works great, actually purifiers the air, not just cover up scent.
Of course cleaning the pan immediately, wiping down the stove, counters, etc. but that’s kind of a challenge if roommate isn’t cleaning up. Also taking out the trash immediately and turning on the fan. This seems like it would really be less of an issue if roommate actually cleaned up straight away!
Ozium is AMAZING. I think the creators of it were car detailers. It takes smoke smell away really well. Fairly neutral scent. I cant stand apple pie/baked goods sprays for the bathroom. I don't want to associate apple pie with poop.
Here's a link to it on Amazon.
OZIUM : BUY IT (and a Smoke Buddy)
I bought the vanilla scented Ozium, and it works far better than Febreeze. I could still smell pot even after spraying all over my room with Febreeze, but Ozium really does just make it go away. Not to mention Febreeze sprays liquid everywhere, whereas Ozium just mists into the air. Read the reviews as well!
Instead of Fabreeze, your roommates should get a Smoke Buddy and some Ozium. They can also reduce the smell A LOT by making a little smoke-fort in their bedroom. This is what I use in my vacation condo because my co-owner isn't a big fan but doesn't want to dictate what I do in my own space. They could also do some small things like use a door draft stopper and a fan. They can at least make some small changes if they're not okay with teh windows being open at least.
For those of us who live in smoke free communities

Ozium has been a life saver for me. I HATE the smell of cigarettes in a car. (Well, anywhere really)
I hear you. My landlord has a zero tolerance policy and they have enforced it. My neighbors would narc me off in a second.
If you have to, Ozium, some form of smoke buddy and a good 'ole towel will keep a roof over your head, guaranteed. I'm pretty homebound, smoke rosin all day long in the midst of really straight people without the use of above, and nobody's ever said a word. Couldn't do that with buds. Good luck.
p.s. I've only used ozium when closet growing and only when leaving the apartment. Scent too strong.
Ozium. I use this when my tenants have been smoking in my apartment.
But I also spray down what you can with a cleaner like 409 and give it a good scrubbing.
My friend who smoked suggested I get [Ozium Amazon]( https://www.amazon.com/Ozium-Air-Freshener-Sanitizer-oz/dp/B0143M9KP6/ref=sr_1_6?keywords=ozium&qid=1557349405&s=gateway&sr=8-6 ) or [Walmart]( https://www.walmart.com/ip/Ozium-Air-Sanitizer-Original-8-Oz/49211793 ) leaves no smell of cigarettes or in your case weed
Ozium or candles my favorite is pipe tobacco
Ozium and Smoke Buddy meet your new best friends
https://www.amazon.com/Ozium-Air-Freshener-Sanitizer-oz/dp/B0143M9KP6 here you go
Try some Ozium air sanitizer. Get the original scent.
Try Ozium. It works great and smoke is one of the things it’s specifically designed to handle. Ozium has both spray and a canister versions. Try using the spray on your clothes and get a few of the canisters as well. Place one in your closet to help prevent future smelliness; change it out as needed. Place others where they make the most sense, perhaps even inside a vent that you suspect goes between your spaces. The spray is noticeable smell-wise right after use (I personally don’t mind it) but it does dissipate so if you’re particularly sensitive perhaps use it before you’ll be out of the house for a bit.

Someone recommended Ozium Air Sanitizer from Amazon at some point and stated it works quite well.
$16 shipped on Amazon if you have Prime.
I smoke in my car, bathroom, and sometimes my room
When there is no neighbors out. It's a really good solution and works quite well based off my past experiences with it.
ozium is definitely available on the US Amazon site, is it different in Canada?
This works well
It sounds like they'll never stop no matter how nicely you ask.
You could escalate this issue to management (imagine that conversation) or get yourself a small can of Ozium -- https://www.amazon.com/Ozium-Sanitizer-Airborne-Eliminates-Freshener/dp/B0143M9KP6/ref=pd_lpo_vtph_263_bs_t_1?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=WGSBMBYJ32BTBFXDMN4X. One spray will destroy literally any and every humanly possible odor in a small office.
You need to be cleaning mold with bleach. Ideally, you should also be wearing full body protection with a P100 rated respirator while cleaning it.
You need a long term humidity control plan for the whole house. You should also get your HVAC ductwork looked at and probably cleaned, if not replaced.
In order to get rid of the smell and actually clean the air, you need to use a glycol-ized air sanitizer such as Ozium. It does more than mask odors. It will actually kill airborne bacteria and spores. Spray it in the air, but also spray it directly into your HVAC air intake. It's what hospitals use to keep the air clean.
Honestly, you probably want to call in a professional who can assess how deep the mold is embedded and take the necessary steps to get rid of it completely. You should probably also get a full air quality check done on the whole house. Radon, CO, allergens, etc. Indoor air pollution is no joke.
