Don’t cross the Canadian border with cannabis
Despite the fact that cannabis (marijuana) is legal and regulated in Canada, it remains illegal to take cannabis across Canada’s national borders, whether you are entering or leaving Canada. Additionally, receiving or sending cannabis into or out of Canada by mail or courier is also illegal. Unauthorized purchases from outside Canada (online or other) will be confiscated at the border and may lead to arrest and criminal prosecution.
For more information, consult cannabis (marijuana) legalization.
