Cannabis legalization took place across Canada on October 17th of 2018. With this legalization, an influx of tourism is bound to happen. People from around the world will be making trips to Canada not only to enjoy the great outdoors but to enjoy cannabis as well.

Some countries are not very happy about Canada's move to legalize cannabis. For example, the United States seems to have a stick up their butt when it comes to Canadian business people in the cannabis sector who attempt to travel across the border into the United States.

It’s Just Pot People

They face potential lifetime bans from the US. South Korea issued a warning to its citizens that might be good to think about before taking in a little green when visiting the Canadian scene. The warning states that South Korean residents that decide to consume cannabis will be punished when they return home.

South Korea says they will arrest citizens who participate in this activity. Meanwhile, in North Korea it is entirely legal to purchase and consume cannabis in your home.

Is That Harry Anslinger We Hear?

South Korea has it out for weed so hard it is almost like Harry J Anslinger is in their blood. Citizens of South Korea who are caught smoking cannabis in Canada could face up to five years in prison.

Seems like it's time for those in South Korea and other draconian countries and states around the world to consider making a move to Canada. There's a lot of unpopulated land waiting to be populated in beautiful, friendly Canada.

No Exceptions to the Rule

Yoon Sejin, the head of the Anti-Drugs Division at Gyeonggi Namby Provincial Police Agency said "Weed smokers will be punished according to the Korean law, even if they did so in countries where smoking marijuana is legal. There won't be an exception."

Currently, this law will affect an estimated 23,000 + Korean students in Canada with student visas as well as those visiting Canada from South Korea for business or vacation.
