Canadian Pilots And Crews Are Now Officially Banned From Consuming Cannabis

BY Puff Staff

Remember 2004’s raunchy comedy ‘Soul Plane’ starring Kevin Hart, Sofía Vergara, Terry Crews and Snoop Dog? Us neither. (It’s often ranked as one of the worst movies of all time). Point is, it’s unlikely the Doggfather will be applying for his Canadian pilots’ license anytime soon as Canucks cabin and crew have just been told no flying high before flying high.

Canadian airlines and flight crews are now forbidden to consume cannabis for at least 28 days before going on duty, the country’s transportation regulator said on Thursday.

The rules are in place “effective immediately,” Transport Canada added.

In comparison, Canada’s “bottle-to-throttle” regulations are much more lenient. Transport Canada and the Canadian Aviation Regulation outlines that no one can fly if they’ve consumed alcohol in the last eight hours or if they are “under the influence” of alcohol. Though, most airlines require a 12-hour dry period.

Prior to this announcement, WestJet and AirCanada had both opted to completely ban any use of pot whatsoever for pilots and cabin crew so it will be interesting to see if they revert to the new 28 day “joint-to-joystick” policy.

Now here’s a clip of Snoop as Soul Plane chauffeur, Captain Antoine Mack.
