Canadian pot smokers can face lifetime ban from U.S.

Canadian pot smokers can face lifetime ban from U.S.

That message was delivered by Todd Owen, executive assistant commissioner for the Office of Field Operations, in a news article published Thursday on the Politico website.

Canada subsequently legalized marijuana earlier this year, following through on a campaign promise pledged by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau prior to being elected in 2015 and paving the way for provinces to start allowing retail pot sales starting October 17. The hopes are high that in the near future, the USA can begin to follow in public opinion, and open up its cannabis markets to that of its northern neighbor, allowing for peaceful trade and industries that could continue to work in tandem.

"Facilitating the proliferation of the legal marijuana industry in U.S. states where it is deemed legal or Canada may affect an individual's admissibility to the U.S.", Owen continued.

Another official said those participating in the marijuana business may be turned away at the border. Politico says CBP did not specify any minimum level of investment that could trigger a ban.

So what to do when you want to cross the border?

"Officials from the United States have said that they do not plan on changing their questions at primary inspection after cannabis is legalized in Canada".

At Manchester United Dybala would also be reunited with Paul Pogba, with whom he reached a Champions League Final with in 2015. Zamparini also criticised Juve's management of him.

The government is also ramping up advertising reminding Canadians of their obligations to obey the laws of both countries. This decision will doom many youth before they even get started in life and careers.

Grant McLeod, a senior vice-president of regulatory affairs at Beleave Kannibis, has been in the USA several times since entering the cannabis industry. "This could add to that". "But if an agent asks the question, I suppose they could decline to answer", Lorne Waldman, an immigration lawyer, tells Bloomberg.

While almost all border states have some form of legalized marijuana use, it remains illegal under US federal law, which classifies those who work in the marijuana industry as drug traffickers.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's government officials have maintained that despite the change in law, there is no indication marijuana legalisation will shift the United States approach in how it deals with Canadians crossing the boundary, and confirmed that involvement in the industry could result in denied entry.

"You're not just going to see these northern Washington cases, you're going to see them Canada-wide from east to west coast", he said.
