Denver Westword Blog: Marijuana: TSA says flying between Colorado and Washington with herb will be okay...sort of According to the Transportation Security Administration, if medical marijuana patients' paperwork checks out, they can board a flight with meds in tow as long as they are headed to a medical marijuana state that honors Colorado red cards. So...now that voters in Washington and Colorado have legalized small amounts of marijuana for adults over 21, does that mean you'll be able to fly between those states with your stash? Yes and no.We posed our question to TSA spokesman David Castelveter earlier this week, and the response we received is somewhat ambiguous. Basically, Castelveter told us that looking for marijuana isn't a priority for TSA agents. In fact, he revealed that the TSA doesn't search specifically for drugs at all. But if marijuana is found during a screening, agents will refer the matter to local law enforcement -- who may care a lot more than the TSA does."TSA doesn't search specifically for ..." = bulloop:! And what happens if your flight is diverted, or you are bumped during a connection? Or you are just waiting at the gate for your connection in a non-marijuana-friendly state and they airport cops just happen to wander by with a dog? Etc.
