For Canadians heading south

Pot smokers turned away at U.S. border - CBC News | The National

Advice is to lie if asked if you have ever smoked pot.

That's hilarious, but I can't explain why because that would be discussing politics.

And tell them that I have? I don't think that would help...

I suspect that the question "have you ever smoked marijuana" is held in reserve. If you are suspect for other reasons ( whatever that may be ) or if the border guard doesn't like your mustache, they can ask the question.

Probably right. When I was in law enforcement, and we were questioning someone, we would sometimes throw in a question whose answer we didn't care about, just to see if the person of interest would lie about it. Telling a lie about something minor can be one indication of deception in more serious matters.

Question I used to get is, "is it OK if your dog has a biscuit"?

I suspect in time this will be repealed, as legalization takes effect throughout North America.

Always be prepared, since idiots abound. Remember that LAX airport security guard who thought he had the right to fondle an American air passenger, and got called out when the guy said to him, "If you touch my junk I'll have you arrested!"

Have to respectfully disagree; the tax revenues are too enticing for cash-strapped states.

Here in Canada they expect tax revenues to rise dramatically as it is legalized. There is no way to tax it now, for the most part.
