can you take cannabis seeds on a plane

How do you smuggle seeds?

Travelers may also bring small lots of seed (not to exceed 50 packets of seeds) without a phytosanitary certificate if the seeds are not otherwise prohibited and you have a Small Lots of Seed Permit issued by APHIS.

Furthermore, can airport scanners detect seeds?

Also, can you take sunflower seeds on a plane? Aside from the fact that nuts are a common allergen, shelled nuts or seeds are still a terrible idea to bring on a plane. Sunflower seeds are an especially bad idea because you have to physically spit out the shells as you eat them. Do your seatmates a favor and just don’t.

But if you have a small flat bag of seed. It’s not going to detected. Most countries allow you to possess and transport seeds as long as they’re not contaminated with an illegal drug.

Put them in a baggie and place them in your sock underneath your arch, even when they x-ray your shoes you’ll be fine. Put them in a baggie and tape them under your sac. Buy a sovenoir from over there and stash them in it. Probably best to carry them on yourself or on carry on luggage.

It doesn’t mean you can go through security openly carrying cannabis. A TSA agent can stop you and contact the police as per the usual protocols. The difference is that the APD will arrive and wave you through.

Will you be arrested in an airport in a recreational state? The answer is: “It depends.” Officials are lenient in certain airports, such as John Wayne Airport in Orange County, California, for example. Therefore, airport police won’t charge you with a crime if you have a state legal amount. You won’t be allowed to bring it onboard, however.

It is a bad idea to try and bring oils or tinctures on board. The mere fact that they are liquid immediately draws attention. Edibles are much harder to detect, especially if you make them yourself and package them like everyday food items. Edibles also have less of a smell. In contrast, you are more likely to get caught if you try to bring cannabis flower through.

LAX Is Lenient Regarding Marijuana Possession

The TSA’s screening procedures mean detecting potential threats. As a result, they are not actively looking for drugs, so you could technically sneak through without a problem. However, the likely outcome is that a TSA agent will find the cannabis and hand you over to airport security.

When an airport security agent gets involved, there are several possible outcomes. Airports such as Aspen-Pitkin County in Colorado or McCarran in Las Vegas, Nevada, have a special ‘amnesty’ box. Passengers can place their cannabis in this box and not face any legal consequences. This is primarily because recreational use is permitted in these states.

At the time of writing, passengers at LAX are allowed to travel through security with up to 8 grams of concentrated marijuana and 28.5 grams of marijuana flower. The policy also applies to several other airports under APD jurisdiction.

Don’t assume that taking cannabis from one recreationally legal state to another (Colorado to California, for example) is permissible. If a TSA agent finds marijuana or another illegal substance during security screening, the default policy is to contact law enforcement. Your destination and location of origin are not taken into account. The response of the TSA to cannabis at the airport is consistent across the United States.
