International students and scholars might reasonably assume that using marijuana where it's legal in the United States would not impact their immigration status. They might also reasonably presume that simply being arrested for driving under the influence (DUI) of alcohol, but not convicted, would not affect their visa eligibility. Reasonable but wrong.
Student and scholar advising is now vastly more complicated due to marijuana legalization and the Department of State's new practice of revoking visas of those arrested for DUI. Well-informed advisers must help students and scholars understand the impact that alcohol and marijuana use or offenses might have on their immigration status and visa eligibility.
