This airport will let passengers smoke weed before they check in

Vancouver Airport in Canada is opening up dedicated smoking sections for its weed-smoking customers after Canada legalised the drug earlier this week.

The areas are outside the terminal, not inside, which will remain smoke-free.

A statement on the airline’s website reads: “We provide a smoke and vape-free environment inside the airport – at all times and for all substances – and have designated smoking and vaping areas outside the terminal building for public use.

“Airport users, as a condition of using the airport facilities, must obey smoke-free and vape-free signage at all times and for all substances.”

Passengers are also allowed to fly with up to 30 grams of the substance in their suitcase – however only on domestic flights within the country.

Federal Transport Minister Marc Garneau said: “As long as the flight is domestic, people are allowed to bring up to a certain quantity for their personal use.

“However, I would remind people if they’re going to a country like the United States – the rules of that country are the rules that apply.”

The airport has put up signage around the airport warning people that “crossing international borders with cannabis is illegal”.

Sun Online Travel previously revealed that there’s an Airbnb-style “bud and breakfast” website for people who want to smoke weed when they’re on holiday.

Budandbreakfast.com calls itself “the largest collection of marijuana-friendly hotels and other cannabis-friendly rentals anywhere on the web.”

It states that it is “designed to make guests feel right at home [as] each of our bud and breakfast locations is operated by the property owners themselves, guaranteeing a custom experience unlike any other.”

Customers can also now order cannabis-infused food and drink through room service at hotels in the US.
