Canada Leaps - Nationwide Legalization of Cannabis
You have probably already seen plenty of articles and news on the subject, but this one is our take on the matter.
Little bit of numbers and history.
On June 19, 2018, Canada passes the law authorizing recreational use of marijuana throughout the country. In accordance with the new law, starting from October 17, 2018, residents of the country are allowed to purchase and consume marijuana. Canada becomes the first G7 country to completely legalize cannabis use for recreational purposes at the national level.
Who can buy cannabis in Canada?
Everyone who has reached the age of 18 has the right to purchase flower, concentrate and any products containing THC, CBD, etc. in any official dispensary.
How much cannabis can you buy, possess, and transport in Canada?
Anyone over the age of 18 may purchase 30 grams of flower or its equivalent. The same amount can be carried around, stored anywhere and distributed.
That’s about all you need to know so we will not bore you with more details. We’d rather give you something way cooler.
Can I take some cannabis with me after my trip to Canada after legalization?
When traveling from Canada, you can not take flower out of the country with you, no matter where you are going, even if it’s a U.S. state where recreational cannabis is legal, like Colorado. All Canadian flower must remain within the borders of the country. It is the same way as with the U.S. state laws where you cannot take flower out of state.
