Feds Deny Citizenship over Cannabis Use
Past #cannabis use is credited as the reason the #immigration authorities denied a woman’s request for #citizenship this week. Cannabis remains federally classified as a schedule I drug and purportedly has no medicinal benefits. But according to Judge Nina Y. Wang, this is a demonstration of having poor “moral character” and was grounds enough to deny the Swiss citizen her naturalized American citizenship. One’s moral character is called into question when applying for citizenship to America. The woman’s honesty was not called into question however as she admitted to authorities that she may have used cannabis ten times when she was in her teens. And while a flawed morality argument may have prevented her from being granted an American citizenship, Snoop Dog’s professional joint roller has recently been interviewed and sheds some light on how much smoke this cannabis superstar actually goes through. This fascinating insight into the life of one of the most recognized names in America will leave you stunned. But don’t worry, we have more of the week’s top stories plus a Halloween inspired Name That Strain.
