If you love to travel and you love to light up, then we have great news for you. It was just announced by Canada's Transport Minister, Marc Garneau, that once marijuana is legalized in Canada, you will not only be able to smoke up at home, you'll actually be able to travel across Canada with some joints in your luggage.
After October 17th, all Canadians will be able to pack marijuana with them on domestic flights, whether it's for medical or recreational purposes. Canada’s transport minister, Marc Garneau, has recently clarified the implications of bringing weed on travels.
Garneau has confirmed that Canadians will be allowed to bring up to 30 grams of pot with them on all flights that are within the country, according to Global News. He said that the procedures for handling weed taken through airport security in Canada are not yet confirmed.
This means that if you're taking a domestic flight on Canadian airlines such as Air Canada, WestJet, Swoop and Flair Airlines, you can pack some weed in your bag for your trip.
If you have a stopover in a Canadian city but your end destination is outside of the country, you cannot have weed on you once you leave the country.
However, there are important things to keep in mind before traveling with weed. Garneau warns Canadians not to pack pot into any luggages that will get flown outside of Canada, according to Global News.
And make sure not to bring any down south to the United States, because possession of weed remains illegal nationwide. You could be banned from the country for legally using weed in Canada.
