Pot-smoking Canadians to be barred from US

Border official: Canadians entering US risk lifetime ban for marijuana use | TheHill

Regional Pot Workers Could Face Lifetime Ban From US News Centre News

"But there is no question that we are working with USA officials; 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".

Should a traveller admit to past use, he will be found to be "inadmissible" to the U.S.

The StoneCastle Cannabis Growth Fund comes into play a month before recreational cannabis is set to become legal in Canada on October 17. "And I certainly won't work to assume or impress upon the U.S. who they have to let in or not", Trudeau said at a CBC radio station in Manitoba earlier this week.

"Canadians are going to let their guard down and think what's the problem", says Todd Owen, executive assistant director for the Office of Field Operations for U.S. Customs and Border Protection Agency. She agreed they can be lawfully turned away at the border and banned for life.

Although Owen didn't specify any minimum level of investment, he signaled that the focus was more on those bringing the sector to the USA, which could have implications for the burgeoning sector.

Saunders said even when pot becomes legal, the US border is a different story. This makes me wonder: was he ever in actual contact with U.S. Border Patrol officials during the legalization process?




"Despite one-in-eight Canadians using cannabis today, 400,000 people move between our two countries every day nearly entirely without incident", Canada's public safety office told Bloomberg.

People with connections to Canada's nascent legal cannabis industry say they're increasingly concerned about the prospect of a lifetime travel ban from the United States. That message hasn't "fully sunk in" yet, especially with more casual tourists, said Continental Travel Group President Daryl Silver. "We already notice somewhat of a trend of some people not going to the USA", said Silver.

Canadians spent $19.8 billion on tourism south of the border in 2016, according to the International Trade Administration. "But if an agent asks the question, I suppose they could decline to answer", Lorne Waldman, an immigration lawyer, tells Bloomberg. Under the policy, United States officials are to bar entry to Canadians who acknowledge having consumed marijuana at any time in their past, as well as those who are either employed or invested in legal cannabis enterprises.

Heads up, if you are seeking work in the marijuana industry.

"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.
