Canada’s Transportation Regulatory Authority (TRA) said on Thursday it had banned Canadian Airways employees and flight crews from taking cannabis for at least 28 days before work.

The new policy, which will be implemented immediately, states that no one should work “under the influence of any drug,” a statement on the agency’s website said.

In October 2018, Canada became the first developed country in the world to codify the use of cannabis. Since then, various sectors have issued guidelines on the use of cannabis.

The regulatory body said the move was in line with the scientific consensus on drug abuse at work and the policies of the Ministry of National Defense and Royal Canadian Mounted Police on cannabis.

The Canadian military prohibits members of the armed forces from taking cannabis for eight hours before any tasks, for 24 hours before using any weapons or driving any vehicles, and for 28 days before parachuting or working on a military aircraft
