The Drug War is a war on families

Married couple separated by US immigration due to a 30-year old marijuana possession offense

Debbie and Terry VanDuzee

My name is Debbie VanDuzee. I am petitioning the U.S. Government. I have sent out three rounds of letters to Congressmen, both Senators and those in the House. I've sent letters to the President, Vice-President, contacted all kinds of people in the media and still, I have not seen my husband since March 10, 2003.

I have been married nearly one year and cannot get my husband, Terry, into the US. They will not allow him to cross the US/ Canadian border because, in 1978/1979 he had two simple counts of possession of marijuana under 30 grams in Canada, for which he has a Canadian pardon. My husband is a Canadian citizen.

The U.S. Government says, that this is the reason that he has been denied access into the U.S., even for a visit. If anyone is a citizen from outside the U.S. and they have more than one count of possession of marijuana, they are not allowed in the U.S. period!

Sign the online support petition

It was recommended by a government official that I circulate a petition against the unfair policy that prevents my husband and I from being together. We would appreciate your support in your signing this to let the government know how you feel.

Please sign your name, address, phone number. It will be greatly appreciated. Please go to this website to sign... (You may have to click a few times to get to the server.) The more the signatures, the better! Thank you! God bless!
