Pot-smoking Canadians to be barred from US

Pot-smoking Canadians to be barred from US

According to the article, it's not likely that U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials will interrogate every Canadian about marijuana use. "Facilitating the proliferation of the legal marijuana industry in USA states where it is deemed legal or Canada may affect an individual's admissibility to the U.S.". Noncitizens seeking entry can be found inadmissible for committing or admitting to either a controlled substances offense a "crime of moral turpitude", regardless of whether they were convicted, according to the act.

"If you lie about it, that's fraud and misrepresentation, which carries a lifetime ban", he says. Back in August, Constellation Brands, the company behind Corona beer and Svedka vodka, announced it was investing another $4 billion in Canopy Growth, which raised its stake to 38%.

Canada is set to legalize recreational use of cannabis on October 17, but the drug is still illegal under U.S. Federal law.

However if you are planning a trip to the United States think twice. "They have legalized marijuana in a number of their states and we're trying to make sure that travel between our two countries is not disrupted", Trudeau told CBC Manitoba.

Another official said those participating in the marijuana business may be turned away at the border.

Similar comments made by a border official to Politico sent US -traded shares of Canadian marijuana companies tumbling Thursday.

He said releasing them would be worth it - even if it meant getting expelled from the Senate for violating the rules. Leahy cited the "spying" email during the hearing, asking Kavanaugh, "None of this raised a red flag with you?" Sen.

In his interview with Politico, Owen added that Canadians should not expect cannabis-related questions as a matter of routine while crossing the border.

Cannabis companies are already being publicly traded on the Toronto Stock Exchange, and it seems like only a matter of time before enforcing prohibition along America's northern border creates serious problems for residents of both countries. This decision will doom many youth before they even get started in life and careers. "No lawyer could counsel anyone to lie to a border agent, but if an agent asks the question, I suppose they could decline to answer".

McLeod is calling on Ottawa to strike an arrangement with the US government to ensure that Canadians participating in the soon-to-be-legal industry can travel freely between the two nations.

Cars from Canada line up to cross into the U.S.at Blaine, Wash.

Border authorities can ban others indirectly involved with Canada's marijuana industry from entering the U.S., Mr. Owen continued, including investors since the Immigration and Nationality Act applies to people who have financially benefited from the plant, Politico reported.
