Luciano’s United States visa was cancelled by American law enforcement officers last weekend.
The artiste, who was scheduled to perform on the Philadelphia Jerk Festival at Fairmount Park on Sunday, took to social media to advise promoters and fans of the development.
“I regret to announce that whilst crossing the border from Canada into America by air on August 25th, 2016, I underwent an abnormal interrogation during which my personal hand luggage was searched.
During the search, a mixture that I normally use as a herb medicine for my throat was found and after numerous tests it was claimed to be illegal because it contained cannabis extracts. The herbal liquid was a very small amount (less than one gramme), but as a result my visas were revoked and I was denied entry into the US.
