Pot becomes legal next Wednesday North of 49, and besides the Provincial differences that are sure to confuse folks, the side-effects of this WRT traveling back and forth to The States hasn't gotten as much attention. Which is why a news report that says that the U.S. says it won’t ban Canadian pot workers was kind of surprising.....
quote:
In a policy change made without fanfare Tuesday, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) now says Canadians who work in the legal cannabis industry here will be free to enter the United States.

It’s a major reversal of a position announced in late September, when a CBP statement on marijuana legalization in Canada said that "as marijuana continues to be a controlled substance under United States law, working in or facilitating the proliferation of the legal marijuana industry in U.S. states where it is deemed legal or Canada may affect admissibility to the U.S."

The things you never hear about until an actual spotlight is aimed at it, eh? One of the (I suspect) unintentional results of the previous US stance is that it could have ended up banning hundreds of provincial government employees who involved in the legal cannabis industry through the government itself.


Now, for the end users....that's still a bit of an issue:
quote:
Language barring “abusers” of drugs banned in the United States, including marijuana, remains in place. Any level of use of these drugs is considered abuse.”

On paper, this creates a situation where a cannabis store worker could be banned for using the pot that she is employed to sell — but not for actually selling it — but [Blain Washington immigration lawyer Len] Saunders doesn’t think it will work that way.

While an expert's opinion, the proof will be in what actually starts occurring at the border after this coming Wednesday.....
