It's official, Canadians have been denied entry to the United States after admitting to smoking weed

Less than two weeks after weed was legalized in Canada, it's already been reported that Canadians have been denied from entering the United States because of admitted cannabis use. Canadians that have smoked weed previously have been worried about getting banned from the United States after legalization. 

Roy Ludwig, the mayor of Estevan, Saskatchewan is speaking up after he says that multiple Canadian residents have been turned away from the U.S. border on the premise of previous pot use. The Canadian town is situated close to the border crossing of North Dakota, where marijuana use is still illegal.
