Canada’s NDP Want to End the Lifetime Travel Ban at US Border
Author: Jon Hiltz 15/09/2017 - 17:04:00

One of the unfortunate byproducts of marijuana legalization in Canada is the extra scrutiny that has been happening at the United States border. 

US Customs and Border Protection have made it a practice to ask Canadians and other foreigners if they have smoked marijuana at any point in their lifetime. In some cases, if the answer is yes, then border guards have issued lifetime US travel bans to those individuals. 

This ongoing problem has Canada’s New Democratic Party (NDP) up in arms. “Frankly, I’m baffled that the Liberals have not had the foresight to anticipate this problem and begin dealing with this now,” said NDP health critic Don Davies during a press conference yesterday. “Without such an agreement, Canadians will be put in a terrible position of having to either lie to border officials or risk being denied entry.”
