Canada cannabis entrepreneurs 'could face USA lifetime ban'

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

So U.S. Customs and Border Protection plans to ban Canadians who have invested in cannabis companies from entering the U.S. and says that it doesn't recognize cannabis as a legal business.

Marijuana becomes legal in Canada on October 17. our neighbours to the south?

As long as the substance remains illegal at the federal level in the country, the grounds for inadmissibility are outlined in Section 212 of the US Immigration and Nationality Act, which states that anyone who "is or has been an illicit trafficker in any controlled substance", or who has assisted in trafficking, or obtained financial benefit from the activity can be refused entry. The Horizons Marijuana Life Sciences Index ETF has risen by 134 percent in the past year. "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. "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.

"I would not be crossing the border until I am safely out of that company", he said.

Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale said during a 2016 interview that he would raise concerns with the USA after several major news reports highlighted specific examples of Canadians barred from visiting on account of their admitted marijuana use amid states legalizing the plant for medical and recreational purposes in spite of federal prohibition.

If someone attempting to cross the border into the US admits to past use of illegal drugs, he or she would be deemed inadmissible to enter.

Razer , the gaming and peripheral company, has been rumoured to launch the second-generation gaming smartphone for a while now. That image? That's a leak of the Razer Phone 2 , and yeah, we'll forgive you if you thought it was the original Razer Phone .

"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. That message hasn't "fully sunk in" yet, especially with more casual tourists, said Continental Travel Group President Daryl Silver.

Canadians with no involvement with pot may find their travel also seriously delayed, as the USA steps up screening post-legalization.

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. "This could add to that".

Although you may not be denied entry simply for having a job that's legal in Canada, marijuana executives who work with US companies may be seen as being engaged in criminal activity, Chang said.

And now, Canadians who work in the marijuana industry will not be permitted to enter the US. "That you are going to start seeing some problems with - especially if they buy operations or start doing business with a USA company", he said.
