If someone attempting to cross the border into the USA admits to past use of illegal drugs, he or she would be deemed inadmissible to enter.

Also, marijuana residue - which can linger inside of a vehicle - could possibly be detected by inspection dogs and lead to further questioning.

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.

While the interview generated headlines on both sides of the border, people in the industry say the threat of a travel ban has existed for years.

It's not uncommon for border patrol officers to ask travellers what they do for a living, and if a Canadian admits to either being employed in or investing in the marijuana industry, it's grounds for inadmissibility into the United States.

Canada is scheduled to legalize recreational use of the drug on October 17, but it is still illegal under US federal law, despite major states like Colorado and California loosening restrictions.

Jordan Sinclair, with Canopy Growth, a major medical marijuana supplier in Canada, told the BBC that while their employees have yet to face difficulties at the US-Canada border, the industry as a whole is seeking more clarity as to how cases will be consistently handled by border officials.

In Canada, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said that he doesn't think he has the right to press the United States on its admission policy.

"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".

Florence downgraded to tropical storm, but will continue to threaten Carolinas
They have made clear that this event is all about the water - which the storm has delivered in devastating quantity. Horry County officials told The Sun News that emergency personnel are still responding to calls and never stopped.


"Every country has the right to judge who gets to come into their borders or not". Justin Trudeau's government and travel agents are warning Canadians to make sure they have no trace of the drug in their cars or luggage.
