What Canada’s legalization of marijuana means for travelers

What Canada’s legalization of marijuana means for travelers”

The announcement comes the same day as the enactment of the Cannabis Act, which legalizes recreational marijuana in Canada, the first G7 nation to do so.

Even the ultra-conservative Mormon Church is backing legislation for medical marijuana use in Utah, saying it hopes medical marijuana can "alleviate human pain and suffering". "Marijuana remains a controlled substance under USA federal law and it remains illegal". "Prohibition has ended right now, we made history", Power said.

"Regardless of Canada's legalization of marijuana today, nothing will be changing on the US side or with CBP policies and procedures at the border", Malin said via email. "I'm going to save it forever".

According to the Daily Mail, Canadians seeking out legal recreational marijuana on Thursday not only had to contend with long lines, but also supply shortages in the wake of the historic change.

Flying with pot from Vancouver to Montreal, on the other hand, is perfectly legal so long as you meet the age requirement and carry no more than 30 grams of cannabis.

Pot smoker Ian Power said: "I am going to frame it and hang it on my wall".

"As a result of federal legislation, recreational cannabis became legal in the province of Ontario and across Canada today".

"When you involve crossing an worldwide border with an illicit drug, you are adding tremendously to the risk you are facing", he explained, pointing out that laws in USA states where recreational marijuana is legal are much less restricted than in Canada.

"We're not legalizing cannabis because we think it's good for our health".

Individual provinces can enact additional regulations with respect to its distribution, such as raising the legal age limit to purchase cannabis or by restricting home grow operations.

Pyxus International Inc. led the gains, rising as much as 8 percent as of 11:25 a.m.in NY on higher-than-average volume.

Canada has become largest country with a legal national marijuana marketplace as sales began early Wednesday in Newfoundland.

Can I fly to Canada and spark up like a local?

No. While some polls have estimated as many as two in three people in CT support legalizing cannabis, the state legislature has been more hesitant.

Premier Doug Ford, who faced criticism from the opposition for not having the bill in place before Wednesday afternoon, noted that the online Ontario Cannabis Store handled more than 38,000 orders in its first few hours of business. At 11:30 P.M., they officially opened their Tweed store, to usher in the first legal sales of cannabis. The products are displayed in plastic or cardboard packages behind counters.

Don Clarke, another customer and a user of marijuana for 50 years said, "It's awesome, a bit late". A small team of employees answers questions but don't make recommendations.

Fire and Flower Chief Executive Trevor Fencott brought his wife and three children - 16, 13 and 6 - for the opening of a company pot shop in Edmonton, even though the law forbid his children from going inside.
