IN the tit for tat party, no American with a D.U.I. on his or her record is going to be let into Canada, anytime soon.
not anywhere close to a valid comparison. DUI (driving under the influence), is illegal in both countries. plus if you have a DUI on you record, you
have a criminal record
. this means that you have been found guilty
of committing a criminal offense, where such an action is a criminal
offense. something that stops pretty much anyone, from going to any country. it's not the DUI per say that is stopping you from traveling, it is the
fact you have a criminal record that is stopping you. i have known people with things like a criminal record from being with someone who was
shoplifting as a teenager. that were found guilty, just because they were there with the person who was shoplifting. and they can not travel to
another country due to that criminal record.
being involved in the legal
marijuana trade in Canada is not illegal. and thus those involved in that legal business
have NOT been found
guilty of any crime. they have committed no crime. and thus there is no valid reason they should be blocked from entry to the US.
a valid comparison would be if Canada put a lifetime ban on anyone who worked for a pharmaceutical company that manufactures DHEA a steroid that is
perfectly legal in the US. but completely illegal in Canada. as well as lifetime banning anyone who ever worked at a store that sells DHEA, such as
many grocery stores, or other retailers like Costco, Rite Aid, Wal-Mart etc. (pretty much any store that sells any drugs since DHEA is not even a
prescription drug in the US, but is out n the shelves with all the other non prescription drugs). that would be equal treatment and a valid comparison
