There has been a massive amount of confusion in Canada about whether or not any affiliation with the legal cannabis industry could result in a lifetime ban from entering the United States. The U.S. Border Control issued a warning earlier this year about how participation in the cannabis industry, in any form, could cause problems at the border. The statement was later refuted by U.S. Immigration lawyers, who say that as long as the traveller is not planning on expanding their cannabis participation into the USA, it is not an issue.

Even with that risk however, it does not seem that is a slow down of willing potential employees. The B.C. Liquor Distribution Branch, which will be in control of all recreational marijuana distribution, says that it has hit all its employee targets, and that is it planning on hiring many more for distribution centres as well as government stores in the next few months, despite the warning. 

According to the president of the B.C. Government Employees Union, there have not been any members who have formally brought up the issue. 

Many, if not all, other industry participants have gone on hiring sprees of their own, and have attracted major talent from mature industries such as alcohol, pharmaceuticals, agriculture, and consumer packaged goods.
