Neil Young is officially a "Canarican."
The Canadian-born Rock and Roll Hall of Famer announced on Instagram Wednesday that he's finally an American citizen after his quest to citizenship was delayed over his "use of marijuana."
"I’m happy to report I’m in," the 74-year-old captioned a patriotic photo of himself saluting in front of an American flag and a "Democrats register to vote here" sign.
He added, "Vote your conscience."
The occasion was festive for Young, who has resided in the U.S. since the 1960s when he moved to Los Angeles to pursue a music career. He appropriately broke out in song.
"I'm proud to be a Canarican," he sang to the tune of "God Bless the USA" during an Instagram video, proudly referring to his dual citizenship in Canada and America as he spun both country's flags.
Young previously revealed that the upcoming 2020 election prompted him to seek citizenship in the U.S. to "vote my conscience on Donald J. Trump and his fellow American candidates" because "we’ve got a climate emergency, and governments are not acting."
"I’m still a Canadian; there’s nothing that can take that away from me," he told the Los Angeles Times in October. "But I live down here; I pay taxes down here; my beautiful family is all down here – they’re all Americans, so I want to register my opinion."

However, his quest to legalization wasn't easy due to his recreational activities.
"When I recently applied for American citizenship, I passed the test. It was a conversation where I was asked many questions. I answered them truthfully and passed," Young wrote on his website in November. "However, I have been told that I must do another test, due to my use of marijuana and how some people who smoke it have exhibited a problem."
