Pot use isn’t a border crime

I think being banned from the U.S. for smoking marijuana isn’t right. It’s just a plant. It won’t even harm anyone besides the user.

I think being banned from the U.S. for smoking marijuana isn’t right. It’s just a plant. It won’t even harm anyone besides the user.

Think of it this way: You go to the U.S. border, you’re carrying a six-pack of beer in your car, you get permanently banned from the U.S. It’s no worse.

Alcohol does more damage than pot.

You shouldn’t get banned from an entire country because of carrying marijuana.

I think this rule is unnecessary and it should be removed. It’s just going to cause more border crimes.

I hope Washington will think twice about it. It really is a silly and unnecessary law.
