Oh for f*ck's sake. Isn't there a statute of limitations on this shiat?

For possession of a naturally-occurring substance that's less toxic than purified water, more widespread than most other plant-life, with plenty of legitimate medical and industrial uses and with no side-effects except laziness, a case of the munchies and being kinda tired?

Of course not! Pharmaceutical companies can't turn a profit if any shmuck with access to dirt, water and sunlight can grow his own cancer medicine instead of spending hundreds or thousands of dollars per dose, nobody will buy newspapers printed on wood paper if they can read the news on hemp paper, and the coloreds will start playing jazz music and looking at white women.

Same but opposite thing happened to a friend of mine when he tried to enter Canada, but his marijuana charge was from '78. Time for both countries to knock this shiat off.

wait - you aren't one of those people who actually believes cannabis is exactly the same as meth, are you?  because if you are, imma laugh at you and mock your lack of intelligence.

Waaah laws apply to me.
 
2013-02-03 10:46:30 PM  
I don't care what contest you've won, we don't want your drugs in this country, period.  We have enough crime and issues and addicts as it is, last thing we need is more of the same.  I don't care if it's for a short "trip", you can do lots of real damage in only a few hours, let alone days or a week.

I have no problem with this. If you dont want to face the consequences then dont be a drug junkie.

I've got him marked as a recidivist threadshiatter. Best to ignore and move on.

There is no right to cross a nations border.  The United States can deny him entrance for any reason.

/and the US doesn't have a monopoly on stupid border rules
 
2013-02-03 10:51:43 PM  
Serves him right.

(for wanting to see the StupidBowl to begin with)
 
2013-02-03 10:52:00 PM  
Sucks for him, but laws are laws, and you should respect it.

How would you feel if a bunch of Americans went to Saudi Arabia, drank alcohol, and tried to talk to women in public who aren't their relatives?

Not_Todd: I guess it really did go on his permanent record.


I went North and South of the border this past summer, with guns. It's nice to know my record is clean. You never know what kind of shiat those people will put on there.

good riddance.  he was probably just going to bring in chill vibes and friendly banter anyway, and most people in the US hate that sort of thing.

What r u doin?

HAY GOV'MENT...

STAAAHP!!!
 
2013-02-03 10:53:42 PM  
Just mad because American drunk drivers are refused entry to Canada.
 
2013-02-03 10:54:04 PM  
A US citizen with a DUI can't go to Canada, so Canadians are safe from foreign beer drinkers and Americans are safe from foreign hippies. Imagine the anarchy if we didn't have these rules.

I knew a fellow who was almost denied entry into Canada from the US based on a 20-year-old DUI.  It was a tricky situation since he'd been working up here for a couple of years and this was were his wife and all his stuff was.

Anyway, it seems odd to me that if you pay your debt to society and get are granted a pardon then this should be an issue going in either direction.  Especially if the original charge was, in essence, a ticket.
 
2013-02-03 10:55:41 PM  
In other words, violating the law has repercussions.
 
2013-02-03 10:58:32 PM  
Dumbass.
Its a quick pop into court for a quicky pardon and get your record sealed and you are free to enter any country pot smoking hippy again.
 
2013-02-03 10:59:02 PM  
Well, I feel safer.

What I don't understand is, Canada is really more like Puerto Rico or Guam relative to the United States than a real sovereign nation. We should get to take whatever we want up there and pee on stuff. They should be thankful they share a border with us.

It's not that simple, actually. And the US doesn't recognize Canadian pardons anyway, or vice versa.

True, but many people would argue that the repercussions do not match the severity of the crime. Repercussions only exist because we allow them to exist.

I'd seriously rent a car and run the border if that happened.

My friend had to fill out all kinds of paperwork to get into Canuckidah plus provide two letters of reference.

Funny thing is that I was one of them.
 
2013-02-03 11:03:59 PM  
Well, it was just the ravens and 49ers.  It's not like he really missed all that much.  He may have had more excitement sitting in customs.

This right up there.

I even hate beer. I'm a bourbon man, but potheads smell.
 
2013-02-03 11:04:22 PM  
2 things you never hear.

1. Government admitting it was wrong.

2. A man admitting he has a short dick.

...unless there is something to be gained, typically their own neck.
 
2013-02-03 11:04:48 PM  
Funny the article mentions all of the Canadians denied going into the US for pointless old convictions but fails to mention all of the stupid things Canada denies entry for US residents.  Bias much?

/Canada started it and the US followed suit
//Still doesn't make it right

gateway drug, man. gateway drug. 32 years ago, it was pot. Today, I'm sure he's mainlining left over nut from a Toronto hooker's purse.

This is something the Canadian media likes to do: point out how the US is corrupt and Canada is great by comparison.....but rarely takes a hard look at itself.
