#Marijuana law targets immigrants for harassment, arrest, deportation

Screenshot 2018-01-24 at 06.48.02.pngHere’s another new way the Police State can jerk around immigrants.

The Mercury News reports that anyone who is not a U.S. citizen should use extreme caution before partaking in California’s newest legal recreational activity because it could have serious immigration consequences.

Marijuana is still illegal at the federal level, and it doesn’t take a conviction for using it to affect a non-citizen’s future. If a port official finds out that someone entering the U.S. with a visa has used the drug, the official can ban the person from the country for life.

That means if a green card holder is selected for a search after traveling outside the U.S. for vacation and officials find a receipt from a dispensary, cellphone or social media photos at a pot shop, or anything else to suggest the immigrant has consumed marijuana, that person can be kicked out of the U.S. forever.

  1. Sounds good.. We need many ways to return our country to the Rule of law. This is just one more tool we need to remove aliens.
