 Marijuana Grounds for Denying Citizenship

According to the newly release "Guidance Memo" by the USCIS - the US Citizenship & Immigration Services ( a branch of US Department of Homeland Security), all those applying for the US Citizenship may be denied such if they are found guilty of personally using cannabis or being an employee of any cannabis industry - regardless of the fact that these activities were legally allowed in that particular jurisdiction.

This guidance controlling and supersedes any prior guidance on the topic."
