Vancouver International Airport Allows Smoking of Marijuana in Designated Areas
With all of the changes taking place due to nationwide legalization, it is an inevitability that airports would have to start aking some adjustments. Now, Vancouver International Airport Allows Smoking of Marijuana in Designated Areas. These areas are clearly designated to be outside with the vaping and cigarette zones. Now that Canadians are freely consuming their cannabis products at the airport, we are now seeing many people flying domestically with said products. As a result, what can Canadians expect as they fly from province to province with their beloved TCH?
Travelling With Cannabis
When inside YVR airport travellers are greeted with billboards signs and pamphlets posted throughout the airport informing all about the facts regarding travelling with cannabis within Canada.
This being said, it is still absolutely illegal to cross international borders with cannabis. That will remain a strict no-no. However, as the national law states, we are allowed to have up to 30 grams of cannabis on your person at any time even when flying domestically. So what exactly does 30 grams of cannabis look like anyway? Will you ever need to travel with that much at a time?
