Canada Legalizes Recreational Marijuana, But What Does It Mean For Border Relations?
Marijuana is now legal in Canada. But Canadians who admit theyve used pot in the past can be barred for life from the U.S. NPRs Mary Louise Kelly discusses the issue with attorney Len Saunders.
MARY LOUISE KELLY, HOST:
As of today, marijuana is legal throughout Canada, which raises a question - what happens when Canadians want to enter the U.S. given that marijuana is illegal in the U.S. under federal law? Yesterday, Customs and Border Patrol official Todd Owen held a conference call with reporters, who had a whole lot of questions, such as this one.

U.S. Warns Canadians to not Cross Border with Marijuana
U.S. officials are reminding travelers that it remains illegal to bring cannabis into the United States at border crossings despite the Oct. 17, 2018, legalization of marijuana in Canada.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection CBP representative Christopher Perry says the implementation of the new Canadian law on Oct. 17 thus far has had little effect on the flow of traffic along the border.
Perry, CBPs director of field operations in Michigan, talked to reporters at the Detroit-Windsor Tunnel, which connects Detroit with Windsor, Ontario.
According to Perry, U.S. border ag....

Canada has celebrated its first day of cannabis legalization, which was quite remarkable.
The country on Wednesday became the first country with a major world economy to legalize cannabis for adult recreational use, the New York Times reports.
The countrys new weed laws marks a historic moment for residents such as Montreals Tonino Ruggiero, who told the Washington Post, This is better than the Olympics. Not as good as the Rolling Stones, but close.
A group of Newfoundland residents have the distinction of being the countrys first pot consumers, purchasing packs of Auror....

Starting Wednesday, the sale of recreational marijuana begins in Canada following a law passed over the summer.
The law says anyone in Canada over the age of 18 is allowed to possess marijuana, provided its less than 30 grams just over an ounce. Canadians can also grow up to four marijuana plants in their home and buy from a provincially regulated retailer.
The country had months to prepare for the laws launch. The House of Commons and the Senate approved legalization in June, and later scheduled the law to go into effect on Wednesday.
Keeping the drug illegal in the ye....
Today, Canada becomes the second nation to explicitly legalize the social use, possession, cultivation, and retail production and sale of cannabis. The new law marks the culmination of an effort led by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who promised in 2015, shortly after taking office, to legalize and regulate the marijuana market.
Further, the new law will include expungements of all possession criminal charges of less than 30 grams.
Trudeau was not always in favor of legalization. In fact, for many years he opposed it. That was until he met face-to-face with NORML Canada a....

Canada becomes the first major industrialized country to fully decriminalize cannabis for recreational use on Wednesday, fulfilling a 2015 election pledge from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in a process that has proven massively complex and remains fraught with uncertainty.
Concerns abound. Already there are worries about a shortage of legal cannabis for sale in the early months of legalization and a lack of retail outlets, leading to a possible boom in the illicit marijuana trade the new law is designed to thwart. Canadas 12 provinces and territories are tasked with regul....

Canadas Marijuana Legalization Law Takes Effect on Wednesday
Marijuana possession and use will officially become legal for those 18 in Canada on Wednesday, with regulated adult sales set to begin in several provinces around the country.
Canadas parliament approved Bill C-45, known as the Cannabis Act, in June. It creates an overarching national regulatory framework and enables each province to establish its own system of licensing and regulating marijuana businesses. Adults will be allowed to possess up to 30 grams of marijuana, and all products will be sold in plain packaging with clearly marked labels.
Canada is just the second country and the first G7 nation to legalize marijuana for adults at the national level. The first was Uruguay, where legislation was signed into law in December 2013 and a limite....

Toke off Marijuana is set to become legal across Canada
Rob Gillies and Gene Johnson
Mat Beren and his friends used to drive by the vast greenhouses of southern British Columbia and joke about how much weed they could grow there.
Years later, its no joke. The tomato and pepper plants that once filled some of those greenhouses have been replaced with a new cash crop: marijuana. Beren and other formerly illicit growers are helping cultivate it. The buyers no longer are unlawful dealers or dubious medical dispensaries; its the Canadian government.
On Oct. 17, Canada becomes the second and largest country with a legal national marijuana marketplace. Uruguay l....
