Medical Marijuana Now Allowed in Airports

Medical Marijuana Now Allowed in Airports

Medical marijuana is now legal in airport terminals. More information can be found here: www.nbcmontana.com Some more information from a comment left on another website: ” Hi everyone, My name is Lauren Payne, and I’m the legal services coordinator for Americans for Safe Access. While TSA officials may have stated a relaxing of their own “policy,” note the mention of local law enforcement officials. There is currently a California patient who is awaiting sentencing for flying with medicine. He was turned over to local officials, tried, and convicted of violating the CA medical marijuana program. In addition, it’s important to remember that there are tons of opportunities in airports and on planes to interact with federal law enforcement, and there is NO medical defense to possession, transportation, or trafficking charges at the federal level. Federal fines are steep, and these types of charges may also lead to jail time. It’s best NOT to fly with medicine, EVEN if your flight never leaves your home state. Also, keep in mind that most medical marijuana states do NOT recognize patient status for travelers (except RI, MI, & MT). Just because you are a CA patient, that does NOT make you a qualified patient in CO. For more information, please feel free to contact ASA’s legal hotline at 510/251-1856 x304 or [email protected].
