Do You Have A Marijuana Conviction? Cross Border Travel:
What Individuals and Employers Need to Know About Cannabis Pardons & Visa Waivers

Hello and thank you for downloading our eBook!

Canada legalized cannabis in October 2018. Individuals who travel between Canada and the United States continue to have concerns about how legalized recreational cannabis in Canada and some U.S. states impact crossing the Canada-U.S. border for vacations, personal reasons or on business.

Cannabis Pardons and Visa Waivers

There have been many stories in the media about Canadians who legally used or purchased marijuana in Canada have been denied entry to the United States. U.S. and Canadian companies with cross-border employees who travel between the United States and Canada or who have locations in both countries need to be aware of the new laws, and how they could potentially impact both Canadian employees who travel to the U.S. on business or vacation, and U.S. employees who travel to Canada for work or holidays.

Do You Have A Marijuana Conviction? Cross Border Travel: What Individuals and Employers Need to Know About Cannabis Pardons & Visa Waivers Free eBook


United States federal laws on cannabis have not changed. Canada’s Cannabis Pardon Bill C-93 does not erase information about Canadians' criminal history that was already electronically shared with the U.S. border patrol database. Canadians with criminal records for cannabis possession still face problems at the border and are still subject to being denied entry or a permanent ban on entering the U.S. even if they have a pardon.

Our eBook is intended to provide information about marijuana records for individuals and employers who want to enter Canada or the United States listed below:

  • What a Cannabis Pardon Does - and Does Not Do
  • Marijuana Medical Use
  • CBD Oil and Cannabis Derivatives
  • What is A Visa Waiver: Do You Need One?
