TO BECOME AN AMERICAN, PROVE YOU HAVEN’T SMOKED POT

One requirement for immigrants to naturalize and receive U.S. citizenship is that they affirmatively demonstrate “good moral character.” America’s nanny staters have decided that consuming marijuana in any form is, well, immoral. The Trump administration decided this week to clarify further that it is still immoral to use, share, sell, or manufacture marijuana that is legal at the state level. The updated guidance states:

An applicant cannot establish good moral character (GMC) if he or she has violated any controlled substance-related federal or state law or regulation of the United States or law or regulation of any foreign country during the statutory period… . Classification of marijuana as a Schedule I controlled substance under federal law means that certain conduct involving marijuana, which is in violation of the CSA, continues to constitute a conditional bar to GMC for naturalization eligibility, even where such activity is not a criminal offense under state law.

For example, possession of marijuana for recreational or medical purposes or employment in the marijuana industry may constitute conduct that violates federal controlled substance laws. Depending on the specific facts of the case, these activities, whether established by a conviction or an admission by the applicant, may preclude a finding of GMC for the applicant during the statutory period.

The new guidance goes even further:

Note that even if an applicant does not have a conviction or make a valid admission to a marijuana-related offense, he or she may be unable to meet the burden of proof to show that he or she has not committed such an offense.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

According to the stats by The Recovery Village: How Long does Marijuana Stay in your System?

People who smoked marijuana in the last:
30-45 days can fail a urine test
60-75 days can fail a blood test
Up to 90 days can fail a hair follicle test

Though the effects of THC, the main chemical in marijuana, wear off within a few hours of ingesting marijuana, traces of the chemical can remain in the body for weeks. There is no perfect formula for determining exactly how long marijuana stays in someone’s system during a urine, blood, saliva or hair drug test.

So what is supposed to happen, now, in terms of states which have allowed the legal sale of marijuana?!? Is that just supposed to "go away" from this edict, or will it go all the way up to the Supreme Court as a test case, about Federal Law here superseding State Law?!?

And in light of the fact that the legal sale of marijuana has happened in 10 US states (along with the district of Columbia States where the sale of marijuana is legal, will those states which have already legalized the drug be made to renounce the legal sale of it, because of these "guidelines"?!?
