Cannabis for Beginners: Can I Travel With Cannabis?

With cannabis legal in Canada and much of the United States, many may be wondering if they can travel with it. While it's okay to travel with up to 30 grams of cannabis within Canada, don't even think about traveling with it over international or state borders within the US. If you're a cannabis tourist, your best bet is to finish your stash before you head home. 


I've been covering cannabis for nearly five years, and by now I'm all too accustomed to the impersonal cannabis conference at a stuffy, generic hotel or expo hall, brimming with white guys in suits, and generally lacking in the spirit of well, cannabis. (The woes of legalization, I suppose.) So it was a breath of fresh air when I walked into what felt like a giant atrium in downtown LA for a new kind of cannabis conference. Located in what's called the Valentine Grass Room in an industrial area past the hustle and bustle of the DTLA skyscrapers, Microscopes & Machines (M&M) boasted a diverse array of speakers, from doctors and lawyers to chemists and cultivators on the frontlines of the cannabis industry.
