Canadian military unveils pot policy
The guidelines indicate members of the Canadian Armed Forces will be allowed to consume and possess cannabis as long as they follow the federal and provincial laws, but face several added regulations about when they can and can’t use the drug.
Members of the Armed Forces will not be allowed to consume cannabis during a shift or domestic exercise. They will not be allowed to bring cannabis on any aircraft or vessel and are not permitted to bring cannabis with them internationally. As far as day-to-day tasks, military members cannot consume cannabis up to eight hours before performing any duty, up to 24 hours before handling a loaded weapon or driving a vehicle, and up to 28 days before joining the crew of an aircraft or submarine.
