Having purchased the marijuana, you’ve done it. Some of it may even have been enjoyed by you already. Maybe you’ve smoked up on the slopes of Aspen or wandered down the neon-lit boulevards of Las Vegas while taking advantage of America’s ever-growing recreational landscape. There may have been a delivery visit from a friendly, bicycle-riding New Yorker in your neighborhood. Regardless of how it happened, the bag has been secured, and now you’d like to take some of it home/to your next destination. As you type into Google, the inevitable question: should I bring weed on an airplane?
The situation is innocent enough: You want to move some weed from Point A, where it is easy to get it, to Point B, where it is more complicated. There are no judgments here-and. We’ve got your back. We’ve compiled a handy guide to help you transport your pot without getting caught. It’s time to begin. (Unfortunately, it doesn’t rhyme.)
Do I Need to Fly with A Certain Amount of Weed?
Even if you are packing some pot, you should remain cautious. The first piece of advice is simple-don’t gamble. Don’t fly with large amounts. An eighth is a reliable measure when it comes to old-school nugs (aka flowers). This is the maximum amount we recommend trying out for this experiment, which is 3.5 grams.
In the same way, edibles, etc., should be treated the same way. Take a logical approach here. If you’re carrying a lot of products, the TSA is likely to spot it and, at the very least, make you throw it out. That would be terrible! It is expensive to buy weed.
When You Reach Your Destination
Traveling to or through a state with unlawful medical marijuana laws can result in an arrest and charge for possession, even if you have a medical marijuana card. The reciprocity laws vary from state to state, but nearly 20 states accept out-of-state authorizations for medical marijuana.
Some states, such as Arkansas, require visitors to sign up for medical marijuana 30 days in advance and pay a $50 non-refundable fee. The state’s purchasing limit, which differs for residents from temporary visitors, should also be considered by visitors. It is legal for residents in Oregon to possess up to 24 ounces, but only one ounce is allowed for visitors.
Visitors in Washington are prohibited from possessing any amount of cannabis. Marijuana use can lead to the development of memory problems. According to a study published in the journal Neurobiology of Aging, frequent marijuana users over age 65 performed worse on verbal and visual memory tests than older adults who didn’t use the drug. Although other studies have found that marijuana use doesn’t appear to cause cognitive impairment, it’s still best to avoid using it if you have pre-existing health conditions such as heart disease, high blood pressure, or diabetes.
Is There a Place Where I Can Hide My Weed When I Fly?
I’m getting a ticket for weed in my pocket. What’s the best way to hide it from TSA? I have a medical marijuana card, and I’m flying to California. I have a small amount of cannabis oil in my carry-on bag. What’s the best way to get it through security? When will weed be legal? I have a prescription for medical marijuana. Do I have to show it at security? Should I wear a coat or jacket when I fly?
I am curious how much you know about the laws and regulations of traveling with medical marijuana. I know that the TSA has recently changed its policy regarding carrying marijuana in your carry-on luggage. If you do have a prescription for marijuana and are flying out of the country, you must declare it on your flight ticket and carry it with you in your carry-on bag. I don’t know exactly what your state laws are regarding the possession of medical marijuana. Still, I would assume that it is legal to possess marijuana for medical use in most states.
