When it comes to crossing the border with marijuana, Canada has new fines that will be given out if the drug isn't declared.

As of March 29, 2021, Canada Border Services Agency officers will start issuing fines when there's no proper declaration of it by people travelling across the Canadian border.

Even though the drug is legal in Canada, in edibles and other cannabis products, it's a serious criminal offence to bring it across the border.

If you don't declare it or don't give accurate information in your declaration, you could be fined up to $2,000.

Cannabis must be declared at the border no matter what the quantity is, and that applies to CBD products made from cannabis or hemp as well.
