A report by Politico, states that as Canada prepares for legalization on October 17, and while some USA states have eased their pot laws, the U.S. continues to maintain the prohibition which applies at the border.

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

He added, "At a time when public opinion and the culture around marijuana is rapidly shifting, not just in the USA but around the world, it is inane for USA border officials to maintain such a draconian and backward-looking policy".

"We don't recognize that as a legal business", the official said, adding that marijuana investors from Israel have already been turned away.
