A New Brunswick man has filed a complaint with Canada’s air transport security authority after he says he was forced to remove his medical cannabis from its prescription container before boarding a flight.

Burton resident Laurie Manzer, who is a veteran and a campaigner for cannabis as a medication, uses the drug to deal with pain and anxiety from the injury that ended his military career.

On Monday, he was flying to Fredericton from Toronto through the Pearson International Airport, carrying about 30 grams of dried marijuana and 50 millilitres of cannabis oil.

“I have a lockable, smell-proof container that I put my licensed producer containers in to ensure absolute security,” he said.

He said the container was labelled with his prescription.

“From what I understand, that’s what they need to contain,” he said.

When he got to security, the agent appeared “quite confused” by the container, Manzer said, and asked him to pour the marijuana into a plastic bag.
