What do you think would happen to someone caught with a joint

Going through airport security in a major American airport. Houston, Atlanta, Chicago, etc. I know laws vary by state but TSA is federal.

4. I've been told that in California the TSA calls the local police dept...

...who handles it from there. I don't know whether this is true or not because I make damn sure my bag is clean before I go to an airport, but it makes some sense. The TSA isn't really tasked with small time cannabis interdiction and in California possession of small amounts is not generally a big deal, especially if one has a 215 card (for medical cannabis).

6. Well. I live in Texas where there is no MM (virtually none).

I had a j in my wallet. It went right through the x ray machine and nobody saw it. I just wonder what would have happened. Probably called Houston PD. They give tickets for misd. posession

5. mail it to yourself somewhere you can pick it up unobtrusively. put a return address of somebody

 

you dislike intensely, like, say, rudy Giuliani, if you live in NY

hell, I think I'll just mail some to HIM. if I had any, that is.

I would never do anything like possess contraband

7. Forgot itbwas there until too late. I wasnt doing it intentionally.

8. I've heard of people who take the stylus out of a pen and slip one in the body.

 

also, I know LOTS of people who get cartridges through, either by themselves, or as part of an E pen.

am I committing conspiracy, agent Mikey?

10. TSA has zero authority in regard to cannabis, they can refer to local law enforcement if

 

they are so inclined, in Oregon that would require them to call the FBI because that joint is legal in Oregon. The FBI does not want to hear about your joint. They just don't.

However, some States are draconian:
Thirteen Years for Two Joints
"One of those citizens is Bernard Noble, a father and aspiring restaurateur from New Orleans who was stopped by police and nabbed for possession of two joints in 2010. In keeping with Louisiana's habitual offenders law, Noble, who had two prior cocaine possession charges and a prior marijuana possession charge (he admits that he was a coke addict in the 90s), was sentenced to a staggering 13 and 1/3 years in prison for simple marijuana possession, a nonviolent offense."

I'm told that the Southern States are super groovy but to me these wildly racist pot laws are a rather major issue.

don't know the up to date status, but I know Florida came close to passing a medical marijuana referendum recently.

12. Unless they have enough to share with everyone in line

They should have it taken away.

Seriously, though: TSA isn't looking for it. They're looking for bombs and knives and stuff, and weed ( and other organic materials) barely even appears on their x-rays. Dogs inside airports are trained to sniff bombs, not drugs, which is another reason to never, ever put your pot in checked luggage.

13. I had a wooden pipe

Because it wasn't metal, I figured it wouldn't set off any alarms. They found it, but the young agent let me keep it. I didn't try it again.

15. TSA has no idea if your brownie has pot in it or do they care. They have no way to test for pot. nt

17. I remember this one from listening to the Dr. Demento radio show.

I think it was written in the 60's.
