Canada’s Marijuana Laws & The International Border

Canada’s new policy allowing recreational marijuana hasn’t changed what happens at the country’s border with the United States.

The Customs and Border Protection Service reports it will continue to enforce U.S. laws, meaning the drug will not be allowed across the border.
At the busy port of entry at Portal, North Dakota, the director says the federal law has not changed. 

(Brent Beeter, Customs & Border Protection) “We are still going to enforce the federal law. We’re still a friendly nation. We’re going to help take people in. But the law is still on the books that you cannot import marijuana.”

Customs and Border Protection officials say a Canadian citizen working in the marijuana industry in Canada may come into the U.S. for travel unrelated to the marijuana industry, but could be denied entry if entering the country for work related to the marijuana industry.
