  1. Makes sense! She should’ve asked if it was alright to bring it across and if they said no than just consume it in front of them and keep moving! It’s that she wasn’t upfront and when they caught her it pissed them off! Plain and simple!

  2. So sad to see CBD is still getting banned etc. because of uninformed people that confuse it with weed and assume that it's drugs… CBD Oil is the future, WAY better than meds, so the big pharma industry tries to block it.

  3. Washington is SICK! Unfortuantely, it's pretty much constantly that way. And I feel sad for what's done to this Cdn who's being absurdly treated. Washington even added a damn fine to its mad nonsense. It was bad and absurd enough without the fine being added.

  4. I guess i'll play the devils advocate here and state that if the signage states no cannabis, that means no cannabis. The thing people forget is that the US border is federally controlled, not state. Even if is is legal in Michigan (assuming the border crossing here), the gatekeepers (CBP) are federally run. I have a problem with people using the statement "I assumed 'X' therefore 'Y' is allowed" to justify their blind ignorance. As a Windsor resident who works in Michigan, I agree with the CBP that she should be banned for life. Just my $0.02.

  5. I think that the situation matters… in her situation; she used the oil to manage pain from a physical medical problem and believed it to be fine as she was traveling to somewhere where it is also legal. That's an honest mistake and she clearly didn't try to hide or smuggle it across the border. They should have just sent the lady back home and ask she come back another day without the oil in possession. Not bann her for life.. kind of intense.

  6. There are Canadians busted for a little pot or a DUI while in US in the 70s who remain under a lifetime ban to entering US. We need to clear this us w our neighbors. It's just silly.

  7. The U.S. Federal government's position on cannabis is, and always has been a blatant bold faced lie. More evidence comes out every day proving that cannabis is much safer than alcoholic beverages or tobacco products. The DEA “drug schedule” has absolutely nothing to do with public safety and everything to do with politics and government corruption. Based on the DEA cannabis is more dangerous than Methamphetamine, Cocaine or Fentanyl!! Serial killers tobacco and alcohol are not even on the DEA drug schedule!

    * SCHEDULE 1
    Heroin, LSD, Marijuana (cannabis), MDA (ecstasy)

    * SCHEDULE 2
    Cocaine, Methamphetamine, Oxycodone, Fentanyl, Dexedrine.

    * SCHEDULE 3
    Tylenol with codeine, Ketamine, Anabolic steroids, Testosterone.

    Enough with reefer madness, Legalize, regulate and tax recreational cannabis!

  8. Lady is a moron
    The border is a federal zone
    And weed is illegal federally in the us. Border is also a constitution free zone meaning you nor any American has any rights there.

  9. That gets a CMON MAN first off you are going to a state where cbd is readily available I'm sure ,so go without for three hours .second it's an INTERNATIONALS BORDER CROSSING and you got Google at home use it Gotta have more than two brain cells to cross. You are the weakest link

  10. Oh man. My heart goes out to her and the Canadian people. This is outrageous and myself and several others continue to fight for political change in the coming election cycles. We have so many other things to worry about over CBD oil. From 🇺🇸 ✌️ 🇨🇦

  11. Wow what kind of evil border agent did that? So mestup. Its soo pathetic. Cbd is not a controlled substance. She should take it to court. Theres water in cannibal too and fiber are those illegal too. I'd take it to court I really would. Fight it. It's not cannabis

  12. That's fine. There are many other places I can go where my money will get me a lot further so it's there loss really. We should all stop going there and teach them a lesson.

  13. I am fine with how the boarder portal handled the situation with the find. Government only does what the masses want in their area/country. It is up to the travelers to update on laws on where their are traveling. Well done Boarder Portal.

    I just hope i don't do the same thing or worse on my travels.

  14. I agree the American policy is ridiculous but they have warned us and you should do your research before crossing. It is important to respect border crossing rules even if you don't agree with them.
