420 with CNW – U.S. Customs Now Says Canadian Cannabis Industry Workers Can Enter the U.S.

The cloud of uncertainty in the minds of Canadians working in the legal marijuana industry may have lifted a little after the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Administration (CBP) put up an update on its website stating that cannabis industry workers may be “generally” admissible into the U.S. in case their travel isn’t connected to their work.

This clarification comes several weeks after CBP issued a press release in which it suggested that anyone involved in the cannabis industry would not be allowed to cross into the U.S. That statement left marijuana industry workers contemplating an end to simple things like fulfilling the dreams of their kids by visiting Disneyland or even escaping the harsh Canadian winter by seeking out warmer locations across the border to the south.

The new statement clarified that any person involved in the Canadian cannabis industry may be denied entry in case such a person is coming to the U.S. on matters that are related to their work in the cannabis industry. Legalization in Canada doesn’t alter the prohibition of marijuana by U.S. federal law, the statement added.

However, the CBP statement is silent on what the fate of people who admit that they consume cannabis will be at entry points.

What the statement mentions directly is that those who have been convicted for violating U.S. or other countries’ drugs laws will not be allowed into the U.S.

Legal experts agree that the recent statement by CBP provides a more reasonable approach to handling the matter of Canadian cannabis industry workers who wish to travel to the U.S. However, those experts also point out that several grey areas still exist.

For instance, it wasn’t clear how the border authorities will determine which activities are connected to the industry and those that aren’t. Is traveling to attend a marijuana conference in the U.S. outlawed?

Lawyers who specialize in cross-border matters also think that Customs and Border Protection worded their statement cleverly in order to give their agents wiggle room when determining whether to allow someone into the country or not.

It is expected that the position of the U.S. border authorities will keep evolving in the coming weeks and months as the kinks in their current policy get ironed out. In the meantime, Canadians are advised to be mindful about the existing U.S. laws in order to avoid being found in breach of those laws while traveling to or while in the U.S.

ChineseInvestors.com, Inc. (OTCQB: CIIX) and Choom Holdings, Inc. (CSE: CHOO) (OTCQB: CHOOF) must be equally concerned about the grey areas or contradictions in the cannabis laws at different jurisdictional levels.

420 with CNW – White House Drug Office Promises Objective Marijuana Study

The news reports more than a month ago to the effect that the White House Drug Office had asked 14 federal agencies as well as the DEA to collect and submit data showing the negative effects of marijuana legalization in different states has attracted a backlash which has forced a senior official from the Drug Office to reassure those concerned that the marijuana policy panel will not be subjective as it looks into the impact of cannabis decriminalization in several states across the country.

This clarification was revealed by Senator Michael Bennet from Colorado, one of the first states to decriminalize pot. Senator Bennet disclosed that he had contacted James Carroll (deputy director White House Drug Office) about concerns regarding the attempts to spread negative propaganda against marijuana.

Media reports had suggested that a secret committee had been established to gather data which could be used to portray marijuana as a “national threat” as a way of pushing back against its growing popularity and the wave of decriminalization which is sweeping across the country.

James Carroll clarified that the committee set up would conduct a dispassionate review of cannabis without any preconceived conclusions.

Senator Bennet reaffirmed that the data-driven decisions that were made in Colorado would not be watered down by any propaganda by the feds.

It is only fitting that Colorado takes the lead in calling out any force that is trying to smear marijuana since the state was one of the first two to decriminalize marijuana.

This news comes at a time when contradictions are emerging about how different law enforcement agencies regard cannabis.

For example, LA International Airport issued a press release announcing that it would allow travelers to pass through the airport with marijuana.

However, such people would have to run the gauntlet of TSA since all checkpoints are the jurisdiction of the federal agency. TSA revealed it would refer any matters of cannabis to local law enforcement who are at liberty to decide what to do about the situation. Passengers could be delayed or even miss their flight while these institutions engage in this ping pong.

Another scenario has to do with how Customs and Border Protection regards participants in the legal pot industry. The feds see them as drug traffickers while the states or countries from which they originate treat them as a legitimate industry. This difference of opinion leaves individuals uncertain about what will come next.

It is therefore hoped that the U.S. federal government will review its position and make a decision that harmonizes how marijuana is regarded across the nation. ChineseInvestors.com (OTCQB: CIIX) and Choom Holdings Inc. (CSE: CHOO) (OTCQB: CHOOF) must be waiting with bated breath for the day when marijuana will be regulated by a uniform set of laws across the U.S.

420 with CNW – South African Court Declares Personal Use of Cannabis Legal

The constitutional court of the Republic of South Africa made a pivotal ruling last week making it legal for adults to grow, possess and consume cannabis in private.

This case reached the constitutional court after a regional court in Western Province (the province in which the Federal capital of the country is found) ruled that the law banning the use of dagga (the local term for marijuana) by adults in private was unconstitutional.

The government appealed that decision before the highest court on the matter, and Deputy Chief Justice Zondo delivered the binding ruling in favor of the decriminalization of private personal growth, possession and use of marijuana. This reaffirmed the decision of the lower court.

The government is now left with no other option than to implement the ruling.

Indeed, the court gave the legislative arm of the government 24 months within which to come up with an enabling law that will actualize the constitutional court’s ruling.

For example, that law will define how much cannabis someone can have for personal use. The number of plants that an adult can grow for his or her personal, private use will also be clarified once the requisite law is passed by parliament.

In the meantime, cannabis users can point to the court’s ruling as their protection while found cultivating, using or in possession of cannabis in private. Any public possession or consumption of marijuana remains illegal.

It should be noted that various sections of the government, such as the health department and law enforcement, opposed cannabis decriminalization, saying that it posed health risks and could pave the way for people to graduate to stronger substances/illicit drugs. The court has rendered those arguments moot.

South Africa becomes the third country in Africa to permit some form of cannabis use. Lesotho took the honor of being the first country on the continent to legalize medical cannabis last year. Zimbabwe followed suit this year in April. Globally, Uruguay took the lead in legalizing cannabis in 2013.

This small number of African countries in which marijuana is legal in some way is baffling given that approximately 10,000 metric tons of cannabis are cultivated on the continent each year.

The picture is no different across the world ,with possession or consumption of cannabis attracting the death penalty in Saudi Arabia, while Canada is just days away from starting the retail sale of recreational cannabis after allowing the medical use of marijuana years back.

Are the winds of change blowing firmly in favor of the cannabis industry across the world? Choom Holdings Inc. (CSE: CHOO) (OTCQB: CHOOF) and Earth Science Tech, Inc. (OTCQB: ETST) must be hoping that the legal hurdles to the availability of medical cannabis are removed so that the public can reap the benefits that this often controversial plant has to offer.

420 with CNW – Ottawa Police Department Rejects Cannabis Roadside Test Kits

The police department in Ottawa, Canada, has rejected the roadside test kits which the federal government approved for catching drivers who are impaired by the consumption of marijuana.

DrugTest 5000, already in use in several states across the U.S., was introduced in Canada ahead of the October 17 date when recreational cannabis will be available across the country. The Ottawa P.D. cites a number of reasons for its stance.

First, the police say that the DrugTest 5000 kits are very expensive. Each unit reportedly costs $6,000. The regulations in place require the police to conduct a cannabis test as soon as a driver is suspected of being impaired. This means that every police patrol vehicle would have to be equipped with the test kit, an undertaking that would take a lot of money.

Secondly, the sample of saliva taken must be kept at a certain temperature in order to give reliable results once tested for THC. This is too much of a hassle for the police department to deal with on a daily basis.

More opposition to the test kits is resulting from the information filtering in from across the border in the U.S. Apparently, the devices have been successfully challenged in the courts of law for being unreliable, since so much is left to the subjective assessment of the officer selecting drivers to screen.

Some people have even said the cannabis test process is as effective as “tossing a coin” to determine whether someone was impaired due to the presence of marijuana in their blood.

Another fundamental question that needs to be answered is how much THC (tetrahydrocannabinoid) is sufficient to cause impairment. Experts seem to agree that it isn’t as clear cut as is the case with the blood alcohol level detected during a Breathalyzer test.

In light of the above, it seems that the Ottawa Police Department is onto something by rejecting these roadside test kits, which currently appear to be expensive gadgets whose results may not stand up to legal scrutiny.

The decision to train more drug recognition experts may be a smarter move by the Ottawa Police Department, since it provides a better way to identify and possibly prosecute those who will drive under the influence of marijuana. One is left wondering what the thoughts of companies like Choom Holdings Inc. (CSE: CHOO) (OTC: CHOOF) and Hiku Brands Co. Ltd (CSE: HIKU) (OTC: DJACF) may be on this matter.

CannabisNewsAudio – Choom Holdings Inc. (CSE: CHOO) (OTCQB: CHOOF) Remains Solid in the Ever-changing Cannabis Industry

Related Editorial
The Canadian cannabis industry is pliable, changing shape amid mounting public support, favorable legislative action, an influx in capital, and the integration of alcohol and tobacco. For years, this massive industry was entirely illegal; its potential unavailable to legitimate investors. As Canada heads toward legalizing recreational cannabis later this year, however, the continuous sculpting of the industry provides investors a wealth of consumer-driven investment opportunities. Choom Holdings, Inc. (CSE: CHOO) (OTCQB: CHOOF) (CHOOF Profile) is targeting the recreational user via its own brand of high-grade handcrafted cannabis. Cannabis lifestyle brand Hiku Brands Co. Ltd. (CSE: HIKU) (OTC: DJACF) (DJACF Profile) recently received a $10 million equity investment from Aphria, Inc. (TSX: APH) (OTC: APHQF), denoting high expectations for recreational cannabis. Canopy Growth Corp.’s (TSX: WEED) (OTC: TWMJF) recent investment from a big alcohol brand reveals a glimpse of how separate sectors of recreational consumables are interwoven. This strategic blending means big business for cultivators such as ABcann Global (TSX.V: ABCN) (OTCQB: ABCCF) (ABCCF Profile), a recognizable licensed producer and seller of pharmaceutical-grade cannabis products.
