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

Canadians who work in the marijuana industry - and those who invest in the booming pot sector - will face significant risks when crossing the US border even after the drug becomes legal in Canada next month, according to detailed comments by a senior official overseeing U.S border operations.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) will continue to enforce a policy of absolute prohibition when Canadians try to travel to the U.S., the agency told Politico on Thursday. The United States of America does not recognize legal marijuana as a legal business.

While some U.S. states allow pot use, the drug remains federally illegal.

What to do? Well, lying to a border agent is considered fraud and is also grounds for a lifetime ban.

Recreational cannabis will become legal in Canada on October 17. "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. She agreed they can be lawfully turned away at the border and banned for life.

I recall Safety Minister Ralph Goodale stating that there is no reason legalized pot should prompt tighter screening at the US border.

"Despite one-in-eight Canadians using cannabis today, 400,000 people move between our two countries every day nearly entirely without incident", Goodale spokesman Scott Bardsley said by email. However if you are planning a trip to the United States think twice. "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.

Grant McLeod, a senior vice-president of regulatory affairs at Beleave Kannibis, has been in the US several times since entering the cannabis industry.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's government officials have maintained that despite the change in law, there is no indication marijuana legalisation will shift the USA approach in how it deals with Canadians crossing the boundary, and confirmed that involvement in the industry could result in denied entry.

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.
