Canadians and US Cannabis Laws

In the wake of reports that the U.S. federal government plans to apply lifetime visitation bans on Canadians who use marijuana as well as those who work for or even just invest in cannabis businesses, a member of Congress is pressing the Trump administration for details on how it plans to enforce that policy.

Marijuana Moment

What's the deal USA? First off you've mislead the American people for over 100 years regarding Cannabis. I guess the pursuit of the almighty dollar makes it okay to vilify a plant that actually helps people. In the pursuit of profits for pharmaceutical companies it's okay to imprison hundreds of otherwise law abiding citizens. It's okay to ignore science, research and outright lie to everyone. Stop hiding behind 'religion', or the 1940's propaganda. Let's hope we see this map turn green over then next few years. It will be much harder to ignore common sense as more people get involved. So get involved!

There are 9 US States that have legalized recreational cannabis. While still illegal at the Federal level essentially the residents of these states are no different than any one living in Canada. Based on the current logic, if someone from California leaves the US and tries to return they should also be refused entry into the US, if they work for, or invest in cannabis related businesses, or if they answer Yes to the question of "Have you previously smoked cannabis?". How can an AK-47 be legal to own but an ounce of cannabis could get you a life sentence in some states? Craziness.

    Yet another area surrounded in confusion. The states shown in grey have no laws supporting the use of Cannabis or Cannabiniods for any purpose, including CBD based products.

    That said today (Sept 17, 2018) could see the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill which would see this change. [NASDAQ]
