Canada To Discuss 'Ludicrous Marijuana Policy' With U.S.
Canadian officials plan on pushing America towards changing our current marijuana policy, calling it "ludicrous." The policy currently bans Canadians from entering the United States if they previously consumed cannabis.
"We obviously need to intensify our discussions with our border authorities in the United States, including the Department of Homeland Security," Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale state in an interview with the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. on Thursday. Attention was brought to this policy initially in 2014 when a Canadian man was forbidden from entering the U.S. after admitting that he had smoked marijuana recreationally prior.
Reuters reported that the Canadian government has been in discussion with the United States government regarding Canada's plan to legalize. However, the travel policy has yet to have been addressed.
