Prince Harry In his memoir Spare, revealed that he had been using marijuana, cocaine, and psychedelic mushrooms.
The Heritage Foundation filed a lawsuit against the US government, alleging that proper procedures were not followed when granting a US visa to the Duke of Sussex. The lawsuit aims to uncover whether the US government followed the appropriate protocols in the visa application process. US immigration law allows past drug use to serve as a basis for rejecting a visa application.
Additionally, Prince Harry shared in his memoir that he engaged in the use of psychedelic mushrooms during a visit to California in 2016. It is important to note that the state considers the consumption of this drug illegal, and it can serve as grounds for rejecting both non-immigrant and immigrant visa applications.
In his autobiography, he writes that the transition from smoking tobacco to marijuana during his time at Eton College. Prince Harry also discloses his experience of trying magic mushrooms while visiting the United States. During his stay at actor Courteney Cox’s house, he and a friend consumed several black diamond mushroom chocolates and accompanied them with tequila.
Prince Harry’s previous references to his recreational drug use when he was younger indicate that he had addressed the topic before his autobiography, making it not the first time he discussed it.
What is Next?
On June 6, a federal judge at the US District Court for the District of Columbia will hear the case presented by the Heritage Foundation.
Using the Freedom of Information Act, the Heritage Foundation lodged a complaint in order to compel the government to disclose Prince Harry’s immigration records. The foundation states in an amended complaint filed on May 5 that the requested information holds significant public interest.
The Heritage Foundation expects to resolve the matter within a few weeks.
Meanwhile Immigration lawyers and experts believe that the judge is unlikely to agree with the Heritage Foundation’s lawsuit.
