Can People From Michigan Legally Fly With Weed Edibles?
The answer is honestly quite simple.
Get ready to have your heart broken.
Way.com shares that
"Cannabis is still illegal on a federal level, and airports and airplanes are under federal jurisdiction. So, you cannot travel with edibles between two states even if the state laws allow the usage of cannabis."
CAN YOU BRING Medical Marijuana ON A PLANE?
The Transportation Security Administration has some stipulations.
The only cannabis-related products that are legal to bring on a plane have to contain no more than 0.3 percent THC or medication that has been approved by the FDA.
"Marijuana and certain cannabis infused products, including some Cannabidiol (CBD) oil, remain illegal under federal law except for products that contain no more than 0.3 percent THC on a dry weight basis or that are approved by FDA. (See the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018, Pub. L. 115-334.) TSA officers are required to report any suspected violations of law to local, state, or federal authorities. TSA’s screening procedures are focused on security and are designed to detect potential threats to aviation and passengers. Accordingly, TSA security officers do not search for marijuana or other illegal drugs, but if any illegal substance is discovered during security screening, TSA will refer the matter to a law enforcement officer."
What Happens If You Are Caught With Edibles At Michigan Airport?
A very good question that can easily be answered.
Since it is illegal on a federal level, you will have some sort of punishment.
The Points Guys say that,
"Regardless of state law or airport jurisdiction, your cannabis products will be confiscated, given federal law. It's in the transfer from the TSA to law enforcement where some loopholes in the federal rules might be found, depending on whether local law enforcement is interested in pursuing the matter further."
So honestly, you just never know what will happen. Just do not try your luck.
