(CNN) — As laws surrounding recreational marijuana change state by state in america slowly, Canada as a country has legalized the substance.
Adults 18 years and older is now able to purchase pot and and also grow it within their homes for personal use.
State laws vary in america but because US federal law is clear that marijuana is illegal, which means that going from even, say, Vancouver to LA AIRPORT TERMINAL (LAX), is risky. This is actually the case despite the fact that LAX recently announced that passengers are permitted to visit with smaller amounts of marijuana.
Plus, the legal age for recreational possession of marijuana in California is 21, increasing the murkiness — and danger — of traveling with a substance prohibited by US federal law internationally.
Visitors that are of age may use pot during Canada, however they can’t go on it with them if they go.
