The TSA randomly searches checked baggage all the time. We know it can sound intimidating and that some of you will sweat thinking about those buds from takeoff to landing, but trust us, the best thing you can do is take the good stuff with you. On the other hand, your hand luggage is likely to go unnoticed beyond the usual security checkpoint. As long as you're smart about it.
It's still illegal to fly with marijuana. At OaklandMOFO we DO NOT suggest that you attempt to circumvent or violate any local laws. The information provided is based on the TSA, an official government rule on flying with groceries or marijuana in checked baggage or hand luggage. Because the laws of most states are aimed at medical marijuana and now recreational marijuana, people are asking if they can legally carry marijuana or groceries on a plane or even sneak it into a plane without a medical card.
Technically, yes, according to the Transportation Security Agency's government website, just put it in your hand luggage with your medical card. That's all, and you don't have to be creative. You don't want to put it in your checked bag because they do random searches with the checked baggage. Legally, you MUST check local or federal laws.
Gummies and CBD capsules, on the other hand, are a good travel option. They're not liquid, something the TSA is notoriously strict about.
