Canada has become the second and largest country to legalize marijuana. Canada’s Cannabis Act allows anyone 19 or older to buy marijuana online or in government run retail stores in Quebec. At the border, it remains illegal to bring marijuana into the United States. Recreational marijuana is still illegal in New York. But even crossing into Vermont, where adults are allowed to have it, you still can’t bring it with you because you’re crossing federal lines and the federal government still considers marijuana illegal. While many travelers won’t face any extra questions at the port of entry, if a K-9 finds marijuana residue, officials say travelers should expect to get searched. Those caught with marijuana in their car will be issued a ticket. Recreational marijuana is now legal in 9 states, and lawmakers in New York will likely consider legalizing it — as early as next year.
