Canadian Cannabis Users, Workers Could Face Lifetime US Ban

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

USA border officials have warned Canadians who smoke marijuana, work in the cannabis sector - or even invest in burgeoning pot companies could be barred entering the country. "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.", Todd Owen, executive assistant commissioner for the Office of Field Operations at the U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency, told Politico in comments published Thursday.

Owen told online news outlet Politico that the us will continue to enforce its prohibition come Oct 17, when recreational Cannabis becomes legal.

Additionally, if the traveler admits to past drug use, they will be found inadmissible to the US.

While the interview generated headlines on both sides of the border, people in the industry say the threat of a travel ban has existed for years. 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%.

Florence weakens to Category 1 hurricane: NHC
On Thursday, Florence was a Category 3 hurricane on the five-step Saffir-Simpson scale with 120-mph winds (193 km). An investigation is underway, but officials said it appears there's no reason for others at the shelter to worry.

Canada is about to become the second country in the world and the world's first major industrialized nation to legalize recreational marijuana, but the drug remains illegal under US federal law. "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. She agreed they can be lawfully turned away at the border and banned for life.

"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.

"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.

Overzealous border agents could encourage even more Canadians to stay home, at a time when President Donald Trump is targeting the country in trade negotiations.

Sawant is referring to the Seattle head tax that the Seattle City Council adopted and then repealed a month later . Amazon, it should be said, has responded to these claims before, calling them "inaccurate and misleading".

If a traveler admits to past use of any drugs that are illegal in the US, such as marijuana, he or she will be found inadmissible.

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

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.
