Noncitizens seeking entry can be found inadmissible for committing or admitting to either a controlled substances offense a "crime of moral turpitude", regardless of whether they were convicted, according to the act.

"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 vehicle, they might ask", he said.

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.

"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 auto, they might ask", Todd Owen, a CBP official, told Politico.

People with connections to Canada's nascent legal cannabis industry say they're increasingly concerned about the prospect of a lifetime travel ban from the United States.

Marijuana is illegal under US law, and the federal Immigration and Nationality Act allows customs officials to refuse entry to anyone who "is or has been an illicit trafficker in any controlled substance", including cannabis, a Schedule 1 narcotic categorized alongside heroin under the Controlled Substances Act.

The storm's landfall came hours after Hurricane Florence in the Atlantic hit the North Carolina coast in the US. He said the death toll could climb to at least 16 once other casualty reports were verified.

He will then be giving the opportunity to "voluntary withdraw" from the border-or face "expedited removal".

That process costs US$585, takes several months to work through, and.U.S. Customs and Border Patrol gets the final say. People who have received bans still have the possibility of applying for a waiver from US Customs and Border Protection (CBP).

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. "Facilitating the proliferation of the legal marijuana industry in USA states where it is deemed legal or Canada may affect an individual's admissibility to the U.S.".

"I certainly won't work to assume or impress upon the USA who they have to let in or not".

"It's going to be a real issue for employers and a much bigger issue for employees, who - if I were them - would be panic-stricken right now", said Levitt. "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.
