My significant other and myself are planing on crossing into america from Canada later today, but her and I are both very clearly of the hippy persuasion. This wasn't a problem last time we visited the states, but maybe things are changing...




Each day, 400,000 Canadians cross the Canada-U.S. border. Beginning Oct. 17, 2018, more and more of those travellers could be forced to answer an uncomfortable question posed by wary American customs officers: Have you ever smoked pot? Those who tell the truth risk being banned from the United States for life and might have to apply for special waivers in order to visit the U.S. in future.


I don't think we'll have any problems, but still, wish us luck.

The article mentions a few situations, but like I said, I don't anticipate any problems today. But a few months from now, when I hopefully am working at an OCS (Ontario Cannabis Store), it might be a no go.

Still, I'm looking forward visiting our backwards non-metric neighbors again, and getting some cheap booze too!

Hmm. So are you guys just doing this as a protest?
If so please keep in mind that no one cares. Especially the government. In fact they learn every time this happens.

Just lie. It's no governments business what you've done with your body. Especially if it's consuming a natural plant with no proven serious side effects.

As a protest? How?

We're going to see a band, getting a hotel for the night, taking cabs, we're spending money in america...

That is currently our plan, if they ask us, which I doubt they will.

We're always super careful when we travel outside of Canada, we've never brought anything remotely illegal across a border, aside from ourselves I suppose...

Take some advice from a conservative American who advocates for the legalization of marijuana:

Don't tell them #.

Get a clue dude, you're under no obligation whatsoever to tell the truth to any US Border official or any US official, police or otherwise. There's no "moral code" at work in the US and the US Government certainly doesn't command the authority or respect to extract an obligation to "the truth". Quite the opposite actually; they've been lying to everyone for almost inception!

You made a thread talking about crossing the border. This is a hot topic here in America so obviously you are trying to convey something here.

It's called click bait.

Let's just be real here.

They're gonna separate him from his family and savagely beat him while making him watch Trump speeches with his eyelids taped open.

You still have to say no, you've never, ever touched that stuff. When our media is telling you to lie, lie.
I was banned for life, because a friend mooned a cop in Seattle. They have no sense of humour.....

Why would you tell officials the truth?
I have criminal convictions which mean I would need an interview at the US embassy in London to get a visa. Sack that off, I'll just lie at the border and enter with an ESTA whenever I eventually visit. US officials don't have access to the UK criminal records database, heck I'll even not take a phone with me, buy one out there with a US sim card.
I don't even use my real name on social media so I'll be getting in no problem, and chuckling to myself as I cross the border.

Just cross the border in Washington or Maine where it's legal...
Sheesh...

It's still illegal federally.
Just like illegally crossing our southern border.
Nice try though.

Even where it's legal on both sides of the border, it's still illegal at the border...
Just say no....
