How to Enter the U.S. as a Marijuana User
The Trump administration’s crackdown on marijuana has begun, but it’s not in Colorado, Washington or anywhere else in America where cannabis is legal. Instead, the “greater enforcement” around marijuana, hinted at by officials in the White House and Justice Department, has been at the border.
As Leafly News reported at length in a three-part series last week, foreign nationals, green-card holders and would-be U.S. citizens have been denied tourist and business visas and rejected for U.S. citizenship after admitting marijuana use to customs and border officials—even if the marijuana was legal medical or recreational marijuana, used in accordance with state law.
This was going on when Barack Obama was still president—and was the cause of tension between the U.S. and Canada, after a Canadian citizen was denied entry into the U.S. after admitting to a border guard that, yes, he’d once smoked marijuana.
Cowboys’ Owner Jerry Jones Pushes to Drop Prohibition
It’s been a rough road for NFL players who’ve stuck to their beliefs about medical marijuana as an alternative to opioids for treating pain and a number of other ailments, including concussions.
But things might be changing soon.
Jerry Jones, owner of the Dallas Cowboys, told the other 31 NFL team owners that he wants the National Football League to “drop its prohibition on marijuana use.”
Speaking at a private meeting as part of the Annual League Meeting in Phoenix last week, Jones said he also wants the NFL to stop its “practice of investigating off-field misconduct,” according to NBC’s Pro Football Talk.
