All true and spot on Karl!

And this one just popped up:

U.S. official: Canadian marijuana users, workers and investors risk lifetime border ban
Quote:
Canadians who work in the marijuana industry and those who invest in the booming pot sector risk a lifetime ban on travel to the U.S., according to a senior official overseeing U.S border operations.
. . . . . .
Our officers are not going to be asking everyone whether they have used marijuana, but if other questions lead there or if there is a smell coming from the car, they might ask, Owen said. Likewise, marijuana residue, which can linger for weeks inside a car, could be detected by CBP inspection dogs and lead to further questioning, he noted. If asked about past drug use, travelers should not lie, he said. If you lie about it, thats fraud and misrepresentation, which carries a lifetime ban, Owen said.

If a traveler admits to past use of any illegal drugs, including marijuana, the traveler will be found to be inadmissible into the United States. CBP typically will allow them the opportunity to voluntary withdraw from the border or face an expedited removal. Whether or not the traveler enters the U.S., a record will be kept by CBP and that traveler will not be allowed to return to the U.S. The traveler will have the opportunity to apply for a waiver from a lifetime ban, which costs U.S. $585 and requires several months to process. The waivers are issued at the discretion of CBP.

So essentially, if you lie about it (and I suppose they catch you somehow) - a lifetime ban. If you tell the truth that you have used in the past - lifetime ban.

This has the potential to 'back hole' ream a whole bunch of folks.

Yet another reason to de-schedule cannabinoid products . . .
