As of January 2018, 28 states and the District of Columbia have legalized medical marijuana, and 8 states and the District of Columbia have legalized recreational marijuana for adults. Immigrants may reasonably think that using marijuana according to these state laws will not hurt their immigration status. Unfortunately, that's wrong!! It is still a federal offense to possess marijuana, and immigration is part of federal law. These handouts provide warnings about what immigrants need to know.
