Based on recent sting operations coordinated at bars in the Buffalo area, NYS Troopers have been arresting those under 21 who present "fake" or "chalked" IDs to attempt and enter bars and night clubs. Most individuals, many of whom are college students, are generally issued appearance tickets for a traffic infraction under NYS Vehicle and Traffic Law Section 509-6. Upon arrival at Court, this is normally reduced to a parking or jay walking ticket. However, several weeks after the arrest, the defendants are receiving a letter from a DMV Investigator calling them to either schedule a DMV Hearing at which their licenses may be revoked for up to a year, or accepting a plea to a 90 day suspension of their license with a Conditional License being granted to drive to work, school, and medical appointments. This can have serious ramifications on your licensure going forward, especially if you have prior incidents of suspension or revocation.

As Canada has recently legalized recreational marijuana use nationally, border patrol and customs officers on either side of the border prepare for new issues. Some U.S. states have legalized marijuana to varying degrees, Canada has done so nationally, but the U.S. federal government still lists marijuana as a Schedule 1 drug under the Controlled Substances Act. Therefore, U.S. border patrol can seize, detain, and seek to prosecute any individual crossing into the U.S. with marijuana from Canada, even if it was a legal amount/format both in the country of departure and state of arrival. Thus, the various prohibitions and regulations of marijuana use will continue to frustrate unwitting travelers who may think they are comporting to the "new" laws on marijuana use and possession in their home country. You should into Canada or the U.S. with marijuana as it will likely be seized, and you may be arrested for prosecution.
