If you are living in a shared home with individuals on separate leases can you be evicted due thedrug use of the other individuals?

I live in a shared home with 5 other individuals, several of whom smoke pot and we were recently served 10 day notices to comply or vacate due to the marijuana use. If you do not smoke what are your responsibilities in a situation like this? Are you legally bound to notify the landlord if any of the other individuals are smoking marijuana?
