Easier To Carry-on Pot Than Bottled Water

By Expert Author: www.cheapfares.com

Washington and Colorado can be easily visited through a variety of cheap travel options, including cheap airplane tickets, and cheap vacation packages. These states decision to legalize pot for personal use appears to have increased their popularity, at least among select travelers.

Now passengers have started transporting pot through these states airports. Washington’s airports cannot prevent travelers from transporting pot in the air so long as they do not attempt to travel with pot over the state legal limit of one ounce. Colorado airports have more discretion when it comes to pot because its state pot laws give property owners more authority to restrict the drug.

Some Colorado airports have forbidden pot on their premises and have come out with penalties, including fines as high as $2,500 and even jail time at the Colorado Springs airport, which is home to both Army and Air Force bases. A drop box located at the airport where travelers can dispose of weed has yet to receive any pot.

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) airport security personnel requires travelers to empty water bottles, but when they discover personal amounts of marijuana, it is rare that the DEA or FBI is notified. Pot cases are usually handed over to local police who have little recourse in Colorado and Washington. At the Sea-Tac airport police only arrest or investigate passengers if they become combative, belligerent, or carry large amounts of cash.

The Port of Denver has banned pot at Denver International and can fine offending travelers up to $999 for transporting pot. To date, no one has been fined.

The real challenge for passengers who transport pot via a plane in Colorado and Washington is when they arrive at their destinations. Pot possession becomes illegal as soon as a plane touches down in any of the other 48 states.
