Despite the fact that cannabis (marijuana) is legal and regulated in Canada, it remains illegal to take cannabis across Canada's national borders, whether you are entering or leaving Canada. For more information, consult cannabis (marijuana) legalization.
Possession or use of marijuana inside a U.S. National Park Service unit (for example parks, preserves and monuments) is prohibited. While the State of Alaska provides for regulated possession and use of marijuana, it remains an illegal drug under federal law, which will be enforced within Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park.
