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

Regional Pot Workers Could Face Lifetime Ban From US News Centre News Border official: Canadians entering US risk lifetime ban for marijuana use | TheHill

It was reported earlier this summer that admitting to smoking marijuana now or in the past can also result in a lifetime ban.

Another official with the Border Protection office told Politico that working with legal weed could result in a lifetime ban. Polls were taken in the past year or so have shown an overwhelming amount of support for the use of cannabis medicinally or recreationally, and that support has risen exponentially over the past 10-15 years.

Enenajor said pot users and people connected to the industry are considered "inadmissible aliens" under us law. This is likely to cause a lot of problems for Canadians crossing the border.

CBP has not specified a minimum investment threshold in marijuana businesses that would trigger the lifetime ban.

Owen also stated in the Politico article that workers who rely on the NEXUS program to cross the border - truckers, for example - can lose their NEXUS privileges because of marijuana use.

Canadians caught crossing the border with marijuana in their auto will face prosecution or a fine of US$5,000.

He said this while inspecting the troops at the Tsugol firing range, where the Vostok 2018 exercise was held. According to previous estimates, about 300,000 troops were set to participate in the maneuvers.

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.". He also noted that sniffing dogs can smell residue weeks after it's been used so people crossing should not lie if the questions are asked.

Canadians who say they invest in marijuana companies would also be unable to enter the country as the USA doesn't "recognize that as a legal business", Owen said.

It's not uncommon for border patrol officers to ask travellers what they do for a living, and if a Canadian admits to either being employed in or investing in the marijuana industry, it's grounds for inadmissibility into the United States. The waivers are only granted at the discretion of CBP.

A report by Politico, states that as Canada prepares for legalization on October 17, and while some USA states have eased their pot laws, the U.S. continues to maintain the prohibition which applies at the border. Under the policy, U.S. 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.

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.
