In my last video, I gave you the skinny about driving across state lines while you’re traveling with your beloved cannabis. I shared with you some tips I had heard – because I would NEVER travel with cannabis.
Anyway, today, with December closing in on us, I want to share with you some information that experienced friends have shared with me, about flying with your beloved cannabis.
The word is, is that it’s never been easier than right here, right now. The bottom line, I’m told, is that the TSA has bigger fish to fry than those 6 jays you stashed in your checked luggage.
You know the TSA, the Transportation Security Administration, part of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security … they’re staffing those check-points that we all need to go through on our way to the gates.
Anyway, TSA agents are said to have their eye on the things that really matter, and that is, rightfully, our safety.
The agency’s website says:
“TSA security officers do not search for marijuana or other drugs. In the event a substance that appears to be marijuana is observed during security screening, TSA will refer the matter to a law enforcement officer.”
Regardless, traveling our friendly skies is no time to get sloppy. Be discreet. Don’t tape your bag of bud to your forehead. Use some common sense.
I live in Colorado, where we got it all going on … and lots of people out here wouldn’t think of traveling to other parts of the country without their cannabis. So what does that look like?
Here’s what I’ve been told:
- The first rule of flying may very well be, give yourself plenty of time, especially if you’re planning on getting high in your vehicle before you make your way to the terminals. You don’t wanna be rushed and do something silly.
- The experienced among us say that packing cannabis edibles, even in your carry-ons, is the easiest way to tote your beloved cannabis. Nearly risk-free and makes your packing easy-peasy. It’s said that even placing coarsely ground flower in your carry on is not an issue … suggestions include placing it in your toiletry case, your glasses case, etc. Don’t forget the papers and matches. No butane lighters.
- Does the thought of drug-sniffing dogs have you on edge? Relax. They’re not drug-sniffing dogs. They’re BOMB-sniffing dogs. Besides the dogs are in the international terminal and we’re strictly talking about flying within these United States. Again, the TSA’s assignment is to keep us safe, not harass us about our stash.
- And of course, the idea is always to keep cool … it’ll help to just remember the TSA doesn’t care about your personal amounts of cannabis. They’re not looking for it.
Besides, who’s ever heard of a loud, obnoxious, uncontrollable really stoned plane passenger?
In fact, maybe it’s not such a bad idea if the flight attendants started handing out doobies. It’d sure make the peanuts taste better.
I’m here with you and for you, Becca
