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

According to a U.S. Customs and Border Patrol senior official, those who work in the cannabis industry, those who invest in the cannabis industry, and anybody who tells a U.S. customs agent that he or she has smoked pot-ever-risk a lifetime ban on travel to the U.S.

Todd Owen, executive assistant commissioner for the Office of Field Operations told Politico that "f$3 acilitating 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.".

As it stands, anyone who admits to using an illegal drug, regardless of its status in their home country, can be barred from entering the U.S. They could declare users inadmissible - perhaps for life. "If you work for the industry, that is grounds for inadmissibility", Owen said.

The federally illegal standing of cannabis in the USA means that those who work or invest in the cannabis sector in Canada could be treated as though they are a drug dealer or working for some sort of cartel, despite the market being legal for many years at this point. "And I certainly won't work to assume or impress upon the United States who they have to let in or not", Trudeau said at a CBC radio station in Manitoba earlier this week. "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.

He added that rather than lie at the border it is better to not respond to the questions.

In January, Bezos also personally gave $33 million United States in college scholarships for young immigrants living in the USA illegally.

They say that despite one in eight Canadians using cannabis today, 400,000 people move between our two countries every day nearly entirely without incident.

"There's absolutely no way you can say if you've invested in the is industry you're not going to be allowed into the United States", he said. "That person who owns a mutual fund and maybe doesn't even know where their money is going, are they going to be covered as well?" he asked.

According to Politico, whether or not the traveller enters the USA, a record will be kept by the border agency and that traveller will not be allowed to return to the US.

A lifetime ban on entering the USA will apply to travellers who admit to using marijuana, employees in the marijuana industry, and investors in the marijuana sector, according to the official.

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