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?

gh0strid3r: I'm sure the border agent had the entire history of the conviction, court transcripts, and the authority to make a judgement call based on his own personal beliefs, right?

Give me a break. A computer screen gave a red light and the border agent responded as trained. The details have nothing to do with it. It's a clerical issue.

For the record, what the guy did was illegal. He broke the law. Whether the law is justified or rational is irrelevant. Actions have consequences, and often far-reaching ones. Before someone gets on my case by trying to rationalize marijuana use, let me stop you here. I am a supporter of getting marijuana legalized. But until it is legalized, it's still a crime and you're taking a chance if you ignore the law.

You are taking a bigger chance if you blindly follow the policies of your government, dont make me go godwin all over this motherfarker.

If you let a man tell you what you can and can not consume, you'd probably suck his dick if he ordered you to.

So....come suck my dick.

He should have flown to Mexico first, then just came on up from the southern border. He'd have no trouble getting to the game that way.

King Something: fusillade762: 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(LIE 1),more widespread than most other plant-life(LIE 2),with plenty of legitimate medical and industrial uses and with no side-effects except laziness, a case of the munchies and being kinda tired(LIE 3)?

Must be more to this story. If he got $50 ticket, then I don't think he would have a criminal record. Could be mistaken though.

JasonOfOrillia: 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.

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.

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.
