    Noticed on the TSA prohibited list that MJ is now a prohibited item even though it presents no threat to an airplane.

    Seems TSA is branching out in areas it has no authority to screen for.

    I guess it's true - TSA employees really are too stupid to be allowed to determine if something really represents a threat to the safety of the aircraft.

    That's quite the situation. They aren't searching for marijuana, but it is a prohibited item, so wouldn't that mean they are searching for it? I can't wait for the first time the TSA confiscates some pot from a dying cancer patient with a prescription or the first news story of a TSA screener busted for possessing pot that they made someone "voluntarily surrender".

    People needs to start packing baggies full of oregano.

    Since mj is on the prohibited list I suspect they are searching for it.

    Shows the list was updated 19 February.
     
  9. I'm actually glad they're not equivocating on this one. Last I saw was an article out of Colorado saying they would sort of maybe kind of consider letting it through if you had the right paperwork, whatever the right paperwork is. That's a recipe for people who think they're doing nothing wrong spending the night in jail, or at least getting something important to them confiscated. Let them own their unconscionable policies and see how well people love them for it.

    Another great opportunity for TSA's officious retards to make people's lives miserable.
