Delete Cannabis Apps Before Coming to the U.S.


January 10, 2019

Cannabis became legal throughout Canada on October 1, 2018. In the U.S., 10 states and the District of Columbia have legalized recreational and medical cannabis use and production, and 33 states have legalized medical cannabis. Mexico's Supreme Court ruled that marijuana prohibition is unconstitutional, paving the way to follow Canada to nationwide legalization.

But beware: Cannabis is an illegal controlled substance under U.S. federal law. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security agency Customs and Border Protection (“CBP”) is the enforcement agency at the U.S. border and airports, and their job is to keep out those who have violated or might violate federal law or cause harm in the U.S. CBP is taking the position that it may bar from entering the U.S. foreign citizens who have used cannabis previously, or who work for or invest in cannabis businesses in the U.S. and elsewhere.
