How marijuana legalization will affect travel within Canada

How cannabis legalization will affect travel within Canada It's illegal to cross the Canadian border when in possession of cannabis. Even after the country passed laws that eventually legalize recreational marijuana, it remains illegal to either enter or leave Canada with cannabis (of course, it remains illegal in the United States as well), even if it's for medical purposes.

While THC is known for its fast and effective high, CBD is non-intoxicating. Both CBD and THC are extracted from the cannabis plant. Although they come from the same plant, these two compounds are technically different in many ways. Their differences might influence your next cannabis purchase.     What are high-CBD cannabis strains? In most cases, CBD is the second most abundant cannabinoid in the...

Marijuana legalization in Canada set for October 17th, 2018

Trudeau says pot will be legal by Oct. 17, 2018 Justin Trudeau announced that recreational marijuana is now legal in Canada, starting Oct. 17, 2018. Trudeau told reporters that the legalization of cannabis will not take effect as early as envisioned by the House of Commons because provinces need additional time to get their physical and online stores up and running. “Producers also need time to prepare for the successful implementation of this regime,” he said. “We hope it will be a success in the way we envisaged.” The federal government was primarily responsible for dismantling key aspects of the Criminal Code to give way for Canadians to freely and legally take possession, consume or sell marijuana to adults.
