    I got back from a UK to USA flight, I took a Vapcap M and a Healthyrips Fury 2 and they both got through with no issue at all, even though the Fury was quite fragrant! They swabbed my bag on my journey out, you could see the screen on the machine saying 'scanning for explosives' or something similar. I really don't think they care if you have a smelly vape on you. It might make them look closer through the rest of your bags if they spot it, but if you're not carrying any meds then what can they really do?

    On another trip, Heathrow baggage inspectors quizzed me about some Arizer Solo stems but not the vape itself. I just told them it was e-cig stuff. They were fine with that and let me go.

    This doesn't apply to the UAE though, never take anything herb related if you're going there. I remember there was a guy who had 0.003g stuck to the bottom of his shoe and ended up with a 4-year sentence!

    I just flew from LA to Oakland with my vape pen in my luggage. I had vaped most of the c02 cartridge. They did request I remove my sock so they could check me for drugs. I didn't have anything in my sock so I was good to go.

    After edibles, I think CO2 oil is the safest to take on flights. I had no trouble flying Denver-SF-Beijing-Shenyang with this small battery in my carry-on. I put the oil in an empty toothpaste tube. I picked up a smaller battery and brought both back with me. I had another cartridge with a bit of oil in it and hit it multiple times in the airplane toilet. It is totally odorless. I dumped the cartridge before going through customs, both ways.

    I'm not much into edibles, but on the long return flight I wolfed down a 100 mg chocolate bar, queued up a Dead show from Europe '72 (Wigan). As the jam faded into drums we hit some turbulence. What a nice trippy experience. :)

    Flew Canada to US and back with my OmniVap in the little plastic tube. I just gave it s good cleaning before departing and again before returning. The return trip my back pack was flagged for additional screening. They didn’t care at all. They actually wanted to see a few small shampoo bottles I had. Didn’t even bat an eyelash at my OmniVap. Of course they also had no clue what it was.

    Why does everyone explain how they got their vapes on planes & trains when they are not illegal, they are not looking for paraphernalia . If you wish to be educational, tell us how all of you got your cannabis on to these vessels .

    Because that would be illegal. And none of us would do that sort of thing.

    true and true, but I feel there are a lot of hypothetical people who sneak their hypothetical goods into some magical vacation spots and I ask them how?Hypothetically of corse.

    Hypothetically, I think people that hide shit, get their shithole FUCKED and found out.

    You hide a plastic bag in the lining of your suitcase or inside a bottle of shampoo, they will want to know what the fuck you are packing.

    It is not faas job to regulate mmj. It is their job to find hidden shit in luggage and carryons.
    Get it?

    It’s because travelling with any paraphernalia that’s got residue of illegal substances is not legal. The device is only truly paraphernalia if it’s shown to be used and have evidence in it. No, it’s not illegal to travel with a bong that’s brand new. Once you use it and it has any remnants then the intent of the device goes from “tobacco use only” to illicit drug use. That gives probable cause for as a minimum search and potential seizure. And in many areas, possession of drug paraphernalia is at a minimum a misdemeanour.

    VC is IMO the only true travel piece.

    Fully 100% cleanable, and breaks down fully to resemble absolutely nothing.
    Nothin to see here.

    my travel piece is a Titanium OmniVap. And you’re right, simple to clean, tough as nails and easy to take on a trip. I have a VapCap M as a backup. They are not my daily drivers when I’m home, but on a trip it can’t be beat. Not that they wouldn’t make great daily vapes, but my Jr Brick kinda has my heart.

    Search on Carmex in these forums. A lot depends on what, how much, where to, and personal presentation. Please don't take this sensitive and caring advice the wrong way, but...

    SHOVE IT UP YOUR ASS, BRO! ;)

    Full-body scanners & metal detectors cannot detect this method, but if you are wearing your Fuck Combustion t-shirt and smell like weed they will introduce you to a much more thorough X-ray machine they keep in the back room.

    In the US, it is legal to travel with vape pens and vaporizers, but only carry on. I would place cartridges and material in checked luggage.

    The issue isn’t vapes. The device doesn’t fall under anything specific. It’s the intent and purpose of the device and if it’s containing anything illicit inside. TSA are looking for things that take aircraft down. If they find illegal substances though the best they can do is report it, but get that TSA agent fresh out of school, and that young cop looking to bring their stats up and you’re looking for trouble. And as much as it seems stupid, they can fvck you any which way they see fit. I know this because for 12 years I was on the job. And in my early years, I was out to get you. So don’t take my kind words as anything but fact. I’m a toker now, don’t have any interest in carrying a firearm anymore. I did my part for god and country. And I do travel with my vapes. But don’t be stupid, or if you plan on being stupid, and you get caught, own up to it.

    I'm still looking for a vape I may travel with. VapCap I have traveled with and the problem with that on a sunny beach is you cannot see the flame and it's difficult with a stiff breeze to hear the click. I have two VCs, a Da Buddha and a Vivant Alternate in Jamaica, but now that I have the new ArGo, this may be the one. I could take stems and leave them, or given they are all glass clean them. (Only problem is 99% Iso is impossible to find and you're lucky to find 70%. I may have to try over proof rum.) The body itself does not seem like it would build up much of anything that an alcohol wipe wouldn't take care of.. even on the way to the airport. Thoughts on this one? I'll be checking my ArGo throughly over time, perhaps even with a bore scope to see if there is any build-up

    @YaMon why not bring ISO with you when you travel? My friend always brings some back to Mexico when he visits the US so he can clean his Volcano parts.

    It's really flammable and while I sure people bring it, I would rather not. Over proof or what they call Fire Wata! may be in order.

    The only difference is the amount of water in the alcohol, which affects the drying rate and that's it. For your purposes, 70% is just fine.
