What Does The TSA Say About Flying With CBD?
If you're getting ready to pack your bags for your summer traveling and you use CBD products, what does the Transportation Safety Administration (TSA) have to say? Are you okay to carry them onboard or to pack in your luggage?
According to the TSA this past weekend, it's agents won't hasle you over a little CBD. The website for the TSA was updated and it's section "What Can I Bring" on medical marijuana. Here's how it reads:
“Carry On Bags: Yes (Special Instructions); Checked Bags: Yes (Special Instructions).”
Now if you're shaking your head and saying, "Huh?", you're not alone. Most travelers are baffled by the three paragraphs of verbage coined "special instructions."
According to the policy update:
“Possession of marijuana and certain cannabis infused products, including some Cannabidiol (CBD) oil, remain illegal under federal law.”
Here's what they really mean...Federal law not state is still what you should follow concerning Marijuana prohibition. The Controlled Substances Act is your guide. Don't agree or frustrated with what's being thrown out? Call your Congressman. I know it sounds crazy but technically, you can still be busted for CBD. Now it may not be the TSA that will enforce it, but some of your other law enforcement agencies can.
