Border official: Canadians entering US risk lifetime ban for marijuana use | TheHill
"But there is no question that we are working with USA officials; 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".
A top official of the U.S. Customs Border Protection confirmed earlier this week that anyone working or investing in Canada's cannabis industry will be treated as if they are an illegal drug trafficker.
As cannabis in the US continues to be normalized by the growing amount of domestic legal industries, it seems as though moves like these will continue to be in opposition to what the majority of the USA wants, and clearly what Canada would like to see.

The government is also ramping up advertising reminding Canadians of their obligations to obey the laws of both countries.
Grant McLeod, a senior vice-president of regulatory affairs at Beleave Kannibis, has been in the US several times since entering the cannabis industry.
Canadians spent $19.8 billion on tourism south of the border in 2016, according to the International Trade Administration.
Canadians crossing the boarder who like to smoke the occasional marijuana should keep that to themselves otherwise they might be refused entry into the land of the free. This is not to say that anyone who does work in this industry could potentially deny their participation in such, but the publicized move by the border agency seems to be more of a power play to show the U.S.'s need to continue its failed decades long "War on Drugs" now being led by Attorney General Jeff Sessions. "That you are going to start seeing some problems with - especially if they buy operations or start doing business with a US company", he said.
