PostSubject: The Border   Fri Oct 13, 2017 9:35 am

Mrs NoCo is going up to Vancouver BC today, just a short day trip. I told her, jokingly, “Make sure you leave your THC hand cream at home.”

She said, “Don’t they have medical marijuana up there?”

I said, “Yeah you’re right. They probably do. But the border guards are federal. Doesn’t matter if you’re bringing a marijuana product from one place where it’s legal, to another place where it’s legal. If it goes across the border they’ll probably not allow it.”

The more I thought about this, the weirder and stupider it seemed.

The cannabis laws are very strange, indeed. In DC, if I recall correctly, it is legal to possess and use cannabis, but it is illegal to buy or sell.

The horror stories about border control personnel, both US and Canadian, make even a day trip non-trivial.

Took her 2 minutes to cross the border into Canada, and 2 hours to come home. Not that they asked a lot of questions — they didn’t — but there was a huge line.

She was able to bring me some OTC acetaminophen with codeine, which is legal up there.
