    This is the dumbest shit I've heard in the longest time. If you invested in the publicly traded marijuana producers in Canada, you can be banned for life without having ever consuming the substance.

    What's surprising about being treated like a criminal for legally investing in American companies?

    The story is kind of bizarre. If you invest in a Canadian pot company, it's no problem, but if it's an American company, you need to apply for a waiver? I sort of understand questioning them since it is still illegal federally, but it is sort of a silly law to begin with.

    That law goes both ways I am pretty sure. If you have broken the law and have a record of any kind then you need a waiver to cross the border in either direction.

    It's like some poorly written bot stricken with tourettes is leaving messages.

    I demand we build a wall. Keep America great, don't allow those dirty Canadian drug cartels to effect our youth with their dirty pot money. We all know that Canadians are all rapist and murders, I suppose some are good people.

    americas cannabis laws are a microcosm of all its problems in general.

    decriminalization is the only sane option at this point, but the prison industrial complex has our leaders too deep in its pockets. this should be a nonpartisan issue.
