But U.S Customs has been obsolete since like 1996 according to Google. It's TSA now.

They're separate agencies under the Department of Homeland Security. The TSA is the airport security agency and also oversees the Air Marshal Service. Customs and Border Protection is responsible for customs stations and border security.

First article says:

In late-September, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection responded with an unambiguous public statement: anyone even admitting to having toked up at some point in their life “is inadmissible to the United States.”

This is so STUPID. And what bothers me most is that it is so HYPOCRITICAL when the population of the US is one of the biggest markets for real drugs. STUPID. STUPID. STUPID.

WE have a government currently run by morons and you think their policies are stupid? Go figure. Maybe they should start asking that question to returning US citizens.

So, in Canada, "I tried pot one time when I was a rebellious 15 year old," can get me banned from entering The U.S. as a 34 year old adult? As my ex manager once said to a lying attempted shoplifter, "Get out of here!" Pot is nowhere near as bad as Heroin, Flakka, Molly, Ecstacy, Speed, Cocaine, Crack. Those are some bad drugs. But come on? Pot? Pot is harmless compared to the dirty 7.

In short, if you are not a US citizen and are trying to enter the US, yes.

The rest of that post is an example of the logical fallacy of relative privation, aka "not as bad as"

Since Justin Trudeau, at least three of his cabinet ministers, and the leader of the opposition have all publicly admitted to smoking pot, will they be banned from the US as well?

IMHO, something trivial you did as a rebellious teenager shouldn't keep you from being granted access to the U.S as an adult. IMHO, as an adult, admitting you smoked pot as a rebellious teenager is in the same vein as,"I stole a bag of chips from Chevron when I was 15." See trivial.
