We are just days away from October 17th when Canada starts legislation on recreational marijuana for adults.
The country’s transport minister says travelers aboard domestic flights will be allowed to carry a small quantity of cannabis with them after that date.
As a caution however, Ministor of Transport, Marc Garneau, warns against packing it into luggage that’s destined outside the country.
He notes that Canada’s airport screening authority hasn’t finalized procedures for dealing with passengers taking pot through security lines yet.
Under Bill C-45, Canadians can bring up to 30 grams of marijuana with them once possession for personal use becomes legal on domestic flights only.
“As long as the flight is domestic, then people are allowed to bring up to a certain quantity for their personal use,” Garneau told reporters in Ottawa on Tuesday.
The Canadian Air Transport Safety Authority said is still working to ensure its rules conform with the law.
