PSA: Smoking Weed Legally In Canada Will Earn You A U.S. Travel Ban

It's hard to believe, but this piece of news was just released a couple of days ago: 

Canadians who smoke marijuana legally, or work or invest in the industry, will be barred from entering the United States

Say what?!

Obviously, you still won't be able to bring cannabis across the border after October 17th, but policing who can enter the country based on what legal choices they make elsewhere seems a little harsh, no?

No matter where you live, if you are currently using cannabis or planning on doing so in the future, you might be interested in taking a look at these lower risk use guidelines.

In essence, they say that not using cannabis is healthier than using it, that no one under 23 years of age should use it, that very infrequent use is best (and pregnant and breastfeeding women shouldn't use it), and that you shouldn't be driving under the influence. And, of course, that if you have a family history of substance use or mental illness, you're at a higher risk of negative consequences from using cannabis.

In other news, I have restructured my website so that...

  • all the freebies are now easier to find (the webinars, my email mini course, and my substance use workbook

  • my forms can be accessed hassle-free and 

  • my services are updated and easy to find and 

  • the book now button is finally in the top right corner, where it should have been from the beginning! 

That's all for now, I think? 

Have a nice weekend and let's talk soon,
