legality of cannabis usage when travelling

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

let's say i travelled to canada, tried some cannabis, head back home. custom stopped me and want my urine, and it's positive, got thrown in jail.

 

the country i live in has some stone age laws where selling could be punished by life inprisonment or death, for possessing, up to 3 months and leave a record (and no one will employ you anymore).

they have all the power to test urine/hair of citizens who returning from territories where cannabis is legalised, like canada, netherlands and some parts of the states.

 

how to prevent that happening? how long do the substances stay in human body? how do i tell whether if a product contains cannabis content?


why everybody post the spec of their rig here? i dont! cuz its made of mashed potatoes!

Pretty much this.  Like, I would completely suggest this a 1000x.  Why would you want to keep living there if they're going to kill you over something as harmless as cannabis?  It sounds like they believe Reefer Madness is a documentary.

Well, if you have been detained then lawyer up.  If not then it, THC, will leave your system at a specific amount of time, not a doctor/can't confirm the amount of time, but um you probably shouldn't be posting this here if you have smoked it or ingested it here because you won't be helping yourself in a court of law.  You're just leaving evidence for the prosecutors.  I mean like if you haven't yet then just avoid cannabis.  In areas that have cannabis openly, they don't exactly put it in your burger at McDonald's, your food at the grocery store, and so on.  Usually, it's at someone's house or a dispensary or some other cannabis specific shop.  You won't find it at like fucking 7/11.  I mean like they don't hide that it has cannabis in it they pretty much overly advertise it.

From what I understood from this, you get punished when you sell or possess cannabis, does the law punish you for having traces of THC in your body?

In other words, is there a law against having traces of THC in your urine?


Here's a list of Discord servers, cause why not.

I understand if you don't want to answer, but I would surely like to know what country urine tests it's citizens when returning from out-of-country vacations. I could see baggage checks and the like, but claiming that citizens must obey their laws even when not in their jurisdiction just seems a little oppressive to me. I have never heard of a country that urine tests it's citizens upon returning home from an out-of-country trip.

 

The factors that can affect how long marijuana use is detectable in urine include: how much is smoked, how often one smokes, and ones own metabolism. Being that those things are not predictable I would not comment on whether or not you should smoke. The risk involved in getting bad advice from the internet is apparently extremely high in this case.

THC's half life= 4 hours, onset of effects after smoking=1-2 hours

If you mean a brownie or cake given by a stranger, you can't really tell. It might be a kush cake.

if your laws are as strict as you make them out to be, the simple solution is to just not do it.

yes, if they find out you have cannabis content in your system, counts possessing illegal drug, same as caught using on the street.

 

funny thing is, drinking underage is not illegal there, same as drinking on the street. not many people do it, but its legal. always thinks that drinking in a bag is funny. dont need a license to sell alcohol drinks and tobacco product either.

Then, as mentioned here before, don't do it and be careful around treats and snacks you don't know

Generally cannabis does not CAUSE it but can trigger it. It's a risk that should be known and taken into account, especially for people with mental illness running in the family.

What?

This post is about the legality of cannabis and how long it stays in the body... Mental illness has nothing to do with this.. 😐

This is entirely up to the laws of your country. If they can still charge you despite you using the substance in a legal location (Eg: Cannabis in Canada), then there's nothing to stop that.

 

Cannabis can remain in your system for up to a month (longer for heavy users).

 

However, if you try a single joint, it should be out of your system in 3-4 days (though honestly this can also vary).

Consuming drugs is not a crime, only porting and or distributing them.

 

If you're extra worried then don't consume the drug in the first place?

Not a crime in your country, perhaps. But some countries, that's not the case. After Canada legalized, multiple countries put out notices that said that their citizens could still be charged for buying and using Cannabis while in Canada. They would simply not be charged until they returned to their home country.

Don't smoke marijuana or consume products that contain cannabis.

Quote

how long do the substances stay in human body?

Detection for traces of cannabis ranges from 48 hours to 3 days.

how do i tell whether if a product contains cannabis content?

I'm hoping there should be a label, or it should be fairly obvious. I'm pretty sure giving someone cannabis containing products without their consent is illegal, so you'd know. 

 

Canada is not a destination to go and smoke weed. You can go to your dealer for a much cheaper price than a plane ticket. In Canada you can explore the wide vista of holiday destinations! Not just to go and smoke weed. 

 

If you do accidentally end up tripping over some air, and landing with a blunt in your mouth, gasping for air. Don't sweat it. They can't decide what you do on your holiday. If you get stopped at the border, it's probably because you look sketchy af. As usual with customs, keep quiet and confident.

lol, it reminds me that land on his penis joke. 

 

i just like canada bud, cannabis is only one of the reason. smoking a joint outside of timmys and down with some double-double? asking locations for best poutine in montreal while know jack shit about french?  

 

yeah, sounds like perfect holiday to me. canada is my third favourite country, had everything good about american culture, without the bad stuff.

If you are in canada for a couple weeks or longer and you smoke some weed in the first week and stay away the rest it probably would not show up especially if you are not an avid user

Why the heck would customs test urine at the border!? Just go through. If they ask questions about cannabis (unlikely) then just lie. Just don’t be dumb and have cannabis on yourself or in your luggage. It’s not a big deal. And if you smoke cannabis just once (and not a ridiculously big quantity, just enough to get high) it’s out of your system in like 24 hours. 3 days tops for extreme cases. 

 

Oh, and make sure you buy your cannabis with cash. You don’t want that on your bank or credit card.

That phrasing can cause some confusion..

I think what you meant was don't have cannabis on yourself or in your luggage.

Usually it will smell. Cannabis has a certain smell to it (I live in a bad neighbourhood so I'm no stranger to the smell). It's a very strong, warm odour. Best way I can describe it is a mix between a fart and grass. Just walk past a cannabis dispensary and you'll probably smell it.

Several major Canadian airports have been installing "Cannabis Disposal Units" for international travelers who forgot they had some on their persons (and for the odd person who "forgot" that literally almost everywhere has Cannabis illegal).
