Sorry, You Can’t Bring Canadian Marijuana To Michigan
Earlier this week, Canada became the largest country, and second in the world, to legalize recreational marijuana. Sales began on Wednesday and U.S. officials want to reinforce that marijuana from Canada is not allowed in the United States. According to border authorities, U.S. agents generally are asking similar questions to travelers that they did prior to the change in Canadian law. And they did add that agents will not change their routine questions about marijuana use.
But to play it safe, if you decide to go to Canada using any entry points from Michigan, you should probably leave the weed on that side of the border before you come back. And as many marijuana enthusiasts from Michigan are possibly contemplating a quick road trip over the border to try out some Canadian pot, we know they may not have to make that trip at all if a key proposal passes in the November election.
Michigan might become the next state to legalize recreational marijuana. Under the proposal, adults 21 and older would be allowed to possess and purchase of up to 2.5 ounces of marijuana. Election Day is Tuesday, November 6th.
