• Flying ... high ... in Vancouver BC

    From Aviation HQ@2:292/854 to All on Tue Oct 16 18:04:58 2018
    From Wednesday it is allowed to smoke weed in the smoking areas of Vancouver Airport, the airport reports. On that day, the Canadian government legalized the consumption and possession of marijuana.

    All forms of smoking are prohibited in the terminal, but in the smoking areas of Vancouver Airport, joints can also be lit from Wednesday. This liberal policy does not apply at all Canadian airports: for example, it is nowhere permitted at Halifax Airport to smoke weed.

    Travelers can now carry 30 grams of marijuana on domestic flights. Also in the hand luggage, so it can smell strange in the cabin. The Canadian government warns that taking cannabis on flights to foreign destinations, such as Amsterdam, remains illegal.
