This is not to say that anyone who does work in this industry could potentially deny their participation in such, but the publicized move by the border agency seems to be more of a power play to show the U.S.'s need to continue its failed decades long "War on Drugs" now being led by Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

In his interview with Politico, Owen added that Canadians should not expect cannabis-related questions as a matter of routine while crossing the border. "Facilitating the proliferation of the legal marijuana industry in US states where it is deemed legal or Canada may affect an individual's admissibility to the U.S".
"Every country has the right to judge who gets to come into their borders or not", he said. "And I certainly won't work to assume or impress upon the U.S. who they have to let in or not", Trudeau said at a CBC radio station in Manitoba earlier this week.
