Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said he won’t ask the American government to change its border rules around marijuana use when Canada legalizes pot next year.

Currently, U.S. border guards can question travelers about marijuana use and can refuse entry over the issue. Travelers can get waivers in the future, but it can be a costly and time-consuming process.

Trudeau, who has previously admitted to using marijuana and was travelling to New York to visit the United Nations on Tuesday, said the U.S. sets its own rules.

“Canadians appreciate is that we don’t let other countries or other leaders dictate who or how we let people into our country,” he said. “So I’m not going to tell Americans how to make decisions about who they let into their country either.”
