California has long been known as a weed smoker’s paradise, but now that is being taken to all new heights! According to Business Insider, travelers passing through LAX can now travel with marijuana in their checked or carry-on bags.
A statement has been published on the official website of LAX reads,”While federal law prohibits the possession of marijuana (inclusive of federal airspace,) California’s passage of Proposition 64, effective January 1, 2018, allows for individuals 21 years of age or older to possess up to 28.5 grams of marijuana and 8 grams of concentrated marijuana for personal consumption. In accordance with Proposition 64, the Los Angeles Airport Police Department will allow passengers to travel through LAX with up to 28.5 grams of marijuana and 8 grams of concentrated marijuana.”
Once you get to a Transportation Security Administration area, which is run by the U.S. government, federal regulations take effect. Marijuana is illegal under federal law. When you reach your destination, you had better be prepared to face whatever marijuana laws are in effect there.
Fly at your own risk!
