Cannabis is Legal in Canada


As of Wednesday, an act called the Cannabis Act was put into force in Canada.

According to the Canadian Government’s website, “On October 17, 2018, the Cannabis Act and a number of supporting regulations and ministerial orders came into force, legalizing and strictly regulating the sale, possession and production of cannabis in Canada.”

Those in Canada are being reminded, however, that taking cannabis into the United States is still illegal—and can lead to charges in both Canada and the United States.

Currently, in the United States, it is illegal to possess cannabis in the States.

Regardless of any previous use of cannabis, or any other substances prohibited, could result in denial of entry into the United States.
