You can now fly out of Los Angeles International Airport with an ounce of weed
Entertainment sales are in full swing in the Golden State, and Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) announced earlier this week that passengers are now allowed to carry up to one ounce of marijuana across the airport.
Yes-you heard that right: you can fly out of Los Angeles with your beloved sour diesel or blueberry smog.
new LAX cannabis policy state:
Although federal law prohibits possession of marijuana (including federal airspace,)
Proposition 64 passed by the State of California came into effect on January 1, 2018, allowing individuals 21 years of age or older to possess up to 28.5 grams of cannabis and 8 grams of concentrated cannabis for personal consumption.
According to Proposition 64, the Los Angeles Airport Police Department will allow passengers to carry up to 28.5 grams of cannabis and 8 grams of concentrated cannabis through LAX.
However, passengers should be aware that marijuana laws vary from state to state, and they are encouraged to check the laws of the state where they plan to travel.
If you are traveling in California and flying home from Los Angeles International Airport and want to bring your cannabis merchandise, please continue.
As long as the passenger does not exceed the legal limit in checked or carry-on baggage, it is now 100% allowed to take the plane and leave Los Angeles International Airport.
Is TSA just focusing on any weeds they might find in LAX now? not completely.
If they see a bag of weeds that may seem to exceed the allowed one ounce of flowers or 8 grams of concentrate, you can still be safely taken away when the police are asked to weigh your stash.
According to TSA spokeswoman Lorie Dankers, “TSA’s focus is on terrorism and threats to the safety of aircraft and its passengers.
It is up to law enforcement agencies to decide whether passengers are allowed to travel with marijuana. ”
Seeing that it is now legal to carry up to 1 ounce of cannabis flower or 8 grams of cannabis concentrate to fly out of Los Angeles International Airport. If you comply with legal restrictions, law enforcement will be powerless.
Whether you fly into a state suitable for leisure is another matter. Roll into Denver from Los Angeles?
Cool. Landing in Dallas?
Maybe not that cool. It is entirely your responsibility to understand the marijuana laws about where you landed.
That being said, it is unlikely that law enforcement at the destination airport will pay more attention to you just because you are flying from LAX and they “believe” that you may be carrying marijuana.
Countless people fly from Los Angeles to all over the world every day.
What happens when you arrive at your destination, just like every time you fly in.
Pick up your carry-on luggage, go to or wait for your checked luggage at the baggage claim area, and then go home.
If you live in a state that is not too keen on marijuana consumption, be sure to keep it for yourself. Your secret is safe for us?
