Default Sparking Up in Canuckistan

So....Canucks?

Have you stocked up on lighters?

It's next Wednesday, y'know?

I'd recommend stocking in a goodly supply of Timbits, too.

And remember....Don't bogart that joint, my friend, pass it over to me!

Now you'll be more than just one toque over the line.

:nudge:

Foreign nationals are apparently required to observe US law while in their respective countries. You know, legislation without representation. Or something.

Cannabis and the border: what pot-smoking Canadians need to know - CBC

Quote:
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.
So, no.

I'm not sure why you might want to hide the fact that you consume something which is entirely legal in Canuckistan when the troglodytic Merkins are just living in the past. Whether one has consumed in the past is irrelevant to crossing the border today.

What is important is that no cannabis is crossing the border untaxed....that's what they got my friends for. Failure to pay the tax on the cannabis found in their vehicle crossing back in to the United States. At the Blaine crossing...long before even medical marijuana was 'acceptable'. They paid the taxes, and the fine, and got their impounded vehicle back, no record, no foul, no lid. Good clean-cut Merkin white boys. It might be different for Canucks.

Crossing a border can be awful in any direction and there's horror stories going both ways. Often it depends on if the agent decides they don't like your face.

I've mused for half an hour on how to reply to this and not sound like a jerk. :) The CBC link above is a good overview of the concerns going around right now, and we'll see in about a week if there's a measurable drive to end all tourism to the US from Canada. In a nutshell, have ever used a substance illegal in the US? "Deemed inadmissible."

ETA: I realize the thrad was supposed to be celebratory, sorry to be a Debbie Downer.

The fascists have won.

No Timbits for you!

My workplace executed a new Drug Policy 3 days ago that we all had to sign. Managers running around like crazy trying to collect them.
