Turns out that when TSA Agents search you or your bags before flying, they aren’t looking for weed. That is, of course, so long as it isn’t too much. But, they have yet to define “too much.” Hit the jump for more info!

When you think about it, Marijuana may be slowly becoming less legal. With around 20 states decriminalizing it for medicinal use, and 2 for recreational use, the ball is now in the TSA’s hands. After all, they regulate our traveling. On their website, they pretty much make it clear that their agents are not searching for marijuana in particular.

“TSA security officers do not search for marijuana or other drugs. In the event a substance that appears to be marijuana is observed during security screening, TSA will refer the matter to a law enforcement officer,” the TSA states. “Whether or not marijuana is considered ‘medical marijuana’ under local law is not relevant to TSA screening because TSA is governed by federal law and federal law provides no basis to treat medical marijuana any differently than non-medical marijuana.”

So, in other words, the discovery of marijuana on a passenger or in their luggage will have no effect on the agent, however, they do have the option to report you to local police.

One example is from 2011 when TSA agents found weed in Freddie Gibbs’ luggage. After finding it, they left a note in his suitcase that read “C’mon Son.” Could this now be protocol?
