Workers in the Canadian Canadian industry from Saskatchewan who want to cross the border into the United States and want to avoid a hammer for a ban can not lie – but they do not necessarily have to tell the whole story of life, says the executive director of the industry.
George Robinson says he is headed by his involvement in the cannabis industry and travels a lot to the US, which involves many questions from border agents.
Robinson, executive director of RavenKuest BioMed, cannabis production, research and consulting, said that US border agencies say he is working with cannabis and that the company operates and owns property only in Canada, not in the US.
"I go to pleasure, maybe I speak at the conference, I never had any problems," Robinson said while speaking to Radio Canada at the Canadian Western Arrangement in Regina.
"I think it's more about getting closer to border security, not just the fact that you are consuming [marijuana] or do not consume it. "
Since recreational use of marijuana in Canada has become legalized, Canadians have raised concerns about potentially banning in the United States if they are asked about the use of earlier marijuana use.
Robinson said he was completely honest with the best tactics, a bit of professionalism and respect when he would work with agencies at the border to go a long way.
"A Canadian citizen who works or facilitates the proliferation of legal marijuana industries in Canada, coming to the United States for reasons other than marijuana industries, will generally be acceptable to the United States," wrote Chris Grogan, US civilian and border security officer in e-mail.
"However, if a passenger is found to come to the United States for reasons relating to the marijuana industry, they may be considered unacceptable."
Employees with a store of hot and floral cannabis, which will serve retail facilities in several Saskatchewan communities, have expressed concern about potential border problems, says the vice president of the company's human resources company.
"We basically ask our people to use their judgment and not feel that they do not move things across the border or the like, and we did not have problems," said Jesse Cheetham.
He said employees of the company regularly travel to the United States without difficulty and he encourages employees to continue traveling, if they wish.
