Those travelling aboard Canadian domestic flights will be allowed to carry a small quantity of cannabis with them after October 17th -but transport minister Marc Garneau warns against packing it into your luggage – if you’re headed outside the country.
Garneau says Canadians can bring up to 30 grams of marijuana with them on domestic flights – once possession for personal use becomes legal.
Transport Canada says taking cannabis or products that contain pot, across the U.S. border – remains illegal under American federal law – even though several states have legalized marijuana.
Canada’s airport screening authority says it hasn’t yet finalized procedures – for dealing with passengers taking pot through security lines.
