Possible to wire a bathroom exhaust fan to a ceiling light?

Need some advice from all you handy Planeteers. Let me start off by saying Im not very handy at all when it comes to shit like this but I'm going to try it anyway.

What I'm wanting to do is install a bathroom exhaust fan in a big walk-in closet. I'd like to install it right next to the ceiling light, would it be possible to wire it to the light so when I turn my light on the exhaust fan turns on too? If so any tips/recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

If I could get my old lady to get in the closet for a smoke. I'd throw a padlock on the door and move the **** away leaving a for sale by owner sign in the window .

I have seen plenty of exhaust fans that are simply vented into the attic. Not sayin' it's the right or wrong thing to do, just sayin' that a lot of builders seem do it that way.

And I too, like others, have doubts that this would be an effective solution. So here are my thoughts on the matter:

1. If it's a girlfriend/wife, just let her smoke in the house. Lord know she's putting up with your shit so you may as well put up with hers.

2. If it's a roommate, tell them to GTFO and go find someplace of her own where she can smoke indoors all she wants. Smokers and non-smokers will never comfortably co-exist.

If she was IN the attic when she smoked, you wouldn't need exhaust fans! Problem solved!

I have kids at home, dont want them breathing that shit. Based on the replies I'm doubting this will be very effective though. Kind of glad, this is starting to sound like more trouble than its worth.

Dude, installing an exhaust fan in the closet and making your mom stand in there and smoke is just goddamn dumb.

@MTG#10 Mercury Vapor lamp is a type of bright blue-ish light used to be common in outdoor dusk-to-dawn security lights. They provided a light on the bluer end of the spectrum and had a higher UV output, so indoor growers would seek them out, but they were much more expensive and gave off much more heat than fluorescent grow lamps.

BTW: I am not a grower nor cannabis advocate. I was a lighting salesman.

An exhaust fan in a closet is not going to make a difference. The smoke will still spill out from the closet, unless it's a ****ing negative pressure vacuum exhaust or some shit.

A vent is fairly easy to put in! Here is what I would do!

Buy a high powered 4" fan can and a separate fan speed control switch. Prob easiest to plug the control switch into the wall. Buy a roof jack and some volcom. Also some 4" flex duct. Heck you could even send the flex duct to an opening you can see so it blows it outside and there's no need for a roof vent. 25ft of 4" flex duct is 30$. With variable speed you can clear that room of smoke in seconds!

I also recommend looking at some YouTube how to videos. Homedepot has some videos. With a little research you'll find this is a very simple task. Many options so make a plan and execute.

Well, if she was thinking about quitting, winter would be the time to do it. Just another thing (besides minor reasons like lung cancer and premature death) that can push her toward a healthier lifestyle.
