Canada cannabis entrepreneurs ‘could face US lifetime ban’ – BBC News

Canadian cannabis entrepreneurs and investors could face a lifetime ban from the US over their involvement in the industry, US media report.

A senior US border official told news site Politico that Canadians in the burgeoning sector could be deemed inadmissible to the US.

Canada is a month away from becoming the first industrialised nation to legalise recreational cannabis use.

While some US states allow pot use, the drug remains federally illegal.

There have been concerns within Canada’s growing cannabis industry for months that they may face trouble crossing the border.

Gas explosions, fires reported in Massachusetts towns – CNN

(CNN)Explosions and fires rocked nearly 40 homes and businesses in three Massachusetts towns on Thursday, leaving at least 10 people injured, one critically. The incidents may have resulted from an issue with gas service, officials said.

Explosions set structures on fire across dozens of blocks and forced evacuations in Lawrence, Andover and North Andover, Massachusetts State Police said. Not all gas had been shut off by Thursday evening and some of the lines were overpressurized, officials said.
