Most criminal marijuana crimes are 1 year SOLs, but some are felonies with up to 8 year SOLs. Lying about use could net a perjury charge under a 6 year SOL.

Q: Was banned from a cruise line for making a YouTube video about Marijuana smoking onboard. Was never caught.

Someone saw the video and reported it to the cruise lines. And I was banned for life. Not for getting caught for smoking weed. Banned because of a video of me smoking onboard. Can I sue?

They'll do that. The short answer is that cruise lines have a no-marijuana policy. It's possible the video was flagged as a violation of policies, and that it could be used as evidence in subsequent proceedings if it appeared on social media or other public forums. Good luck

You will need to contact Dangerous Drug Lawyers directly to determine if you have a viable case. This is not my area of expertise, but it doesn't seem you have a viable case.
