Flying within Canada with cannabis should be pretty straight forward -- but then again, nothing to do with airport travel ever is. Here’s a quick tutorial by Tim Clayton, HEXO’s Business Development Manager for Eastern Canada.
Respect the personal carry amount. That means 30g of dried cannabis or its equivalent in other forms, such as oils.
You must be of legal age in the province you visit. The legal age to purchase and consume cannabis is 19, everywhere except for Alberta and Quebec, where it’s 18.
Educate yourself about public consumption in the province you visit. Each province is different – some allow consumption in public parks, on sidewalks or outdoor public places, others do not. And the airport? Definitely a no-go.
Do not travel outside of Canada with cannabis. “It may be legal where you are going, but it’s illegal to take cannabis outside of Canada,” Tim notes.
Change your baggage before leaving Canada. “If you have travelled with medical marijuana in your luggage before, use different luggage or clean it well before travelling to the US or overseas,” Tim notes. “Faint traces can still be picked up by a canine agent.”
