What Happens if TSA Finds Weed in my Bag?

It's a crap shoot, peruse the TSA site to see how badly defined the rules are. My suggestion is to talk to your local TSA screeners and get your information from the folks you are going to be dealing with. Good Luck.

If you're paranoid, just obtain one of those "legal notices" that ship with hemp flower, and keep it with your (airtight) stash of marijuana flower. Walaa, now you're carrying "fully legal hemp flower". Store it with your allergy pills and toiletries all in one pouch/bag/container.

This is for domestic flights only. And for domestic you really don't even need to do that nowadays. Maybe if you're going to Texas or something, IDK.

If traveling internationally don't do it unless you're comfy with storing a doob tube in your butt hole.

Speaking as someone who’s been flying domestically with weed on a weekly basis since it was legalized in Oregon (to and from several illegal states): the TSA simply doesn’t care. It’s that simple. The more you try to be “stealthy” or whatever, the more attention you’ll get, and it’s because you’re acting suspiciously, not because you have weed.

Still, worst case scenario is they ask that you discard your contraband before boarding, and even that outcome isn’t one I’ve personally known anyone to go through, aside from rumors of a-friend-of-a-friend’s sketchball cousin who acted the fool.

TSA DOES NOT CARE. Walk through those gates like you’re doing nothing wrong.

Texas can be a bit draconian with their enforcement. I'm thinking of this story: https://www.ksat.com/news/texas/202...trying-to-board-plane-with-drugs-reports-say/

So, know your state laws for sure but otherwise my experience has been more or less the same. Dogs are searching for bombs. TSA doesn't care/isn't looking for your weed. Don't give them a reason to search your bags and if you're worried, stick it in with your medications.

I personally would not risk traveling internationally with flower.

I’m sorry, Dave. I’m afraid I can’t do that.
TSA official: "And keep in mind, the TSA canines are trained to detect explosive odors, not drugs.”
I was’t expecting sniffer dogs at the gates of Disneyland, so sweated it out for a good five mins. Drug-sniffing dogs are the exact kind of deterrent Walt’s guys would use.

I wasn’t worried about legalities but not getting into Disney with the kids is a whole other level of trouble. In many ways, they’re a sovereign (magic) kingdom.

They only want you to buy whatever "drug" they can sell you themselves, fuck that lol

I doubt most places ever had drug dogs at passenger terminals. I remember smoking a small joint of very smelly afghani hash in the smoking area of Heathrow airport in the mid 90s, and a cop with a dog walking past about 6 meters away....

And just don't go to Idaho, ever. Skip the risk and the skinheads all in one go.

So this morning I was travelling by air and had enough stuff jammed into one pocket of my backpack that TSA decided to have a look. Origin city in full legal state.

TSA completely emptied the pocket; when she pulled out my Uni Pro+cart I heard her say, "Uh-huh, this can't go." She set it aside. Looked at everything else then packed it back into my bag. Picked up my uni.
"What's this?" she asked, showing it to another TSA agent.
"That? That's a vape pen."
"A vape pen? Not a torch lighter?"
"Naw, a vape pen."
TSA1 then put my batt/cart back into my carryon and I was on my way

Points to her for doing her job properly, and not trying to do anyone else's job.

Vapes R Great
I’ve had the dog “like me” and been strip searched before going from Canada to USA (this is pre legal days)
After I was searched I found a tiny flake of weed in my hoody, lol
Had my passport flagged for like 5 years after that time.
Those we’re the days lol
