I feel bad that this lady was harangued, but at the same time, having a medical marijuana licence, I am forbidden entry into the U.S. One lady in B.C., who had no pot with her, had a sample of her DNA taken by U.S. officials and was told never to try entering the country again. She had never been charged with anything; she was being denied entry due to a medical condition. So as much as I sympathize with this woman, anyone crossing the Canada-U.S. border is walking on thin ice and should expect to get soaked.
