Flying High with TSA: The Rules for Traveling This Summer with Pot

If you are traveling by air this summer and thinking about bringing your favorite cannabis products along for the flight, you’ll probably want to check with U.S. Transportation Security Administration to see if it will allow cannabis through airport security.

“Marijuana and certain cannabis infused products, including some Cannabidiol (CBD) oil, remain illegal under federal law,” the TSA’s website states. “TSA officers are required to report any suspected violations of law to local, state or federal authorities.
