Traveling with Marijuana in America

Can you travel with weed in your luggage in the United States?

Sad to say, even if the country you’re coming from and the country you’re going to has legalized marijuana, you’re still not allowed to carry weed. This isn’t me, though; it’s what the Transportation Security Administration or TSA says. And if you’re asking if that means no medical marijuana too, then yes, you cannot carry recreational and medical marijuana at all. And don’t even think there’s a chance you won’t get caught. After all, the TSA isn’t the only department in charge of examining your bags for cannabis and other drugs. The Federal Aviation Administration and the Department of Transportation are also responsible for that, so you basically will go through three inspections, and you’re subject to federal laws.

How You’ll Be Checked


All right, this is how it goes: If a TSA officer suspects you for criminal activity (which, in this case, is carrying marijuana), he won’t immediately approach you and ask if you could go with them for questioning. The officer will instead refer your case to a local state law enforcer. Then, you’ll be held up at the airport for possessing cannabis. Depending on the state, they could sue you for cannabis possession according to their laws, rather than endorsing the case to the federation.

From One Country to Another

Before traveling, do check the regulations of the country when it comes to medical or recreational marijuana. You should also research the airport’s rules, especially if you’re a medical Mary Jane patient.

Some airports might check your boarding passes to ensure that it’s legal for you to bring cannabis wherever you go, while others might ask you to dispose of your marijuana to pass through security. Again, this depends on the airport. Most of the time, though, you’ll be confronted by a law enforcer. If you badly need the drug for medical purposes, then make sure you travel with a copy of your medical cannabis card or a letter from your country proclaiming that you can carry and consume the drug.


Final Words of Wisdom

The safest way to travel with weed is not to travel with it at all. Even if some agencies aren’t able to detect marijuana in your bags the first time, if you’re subject to additional search and they discover, you’ll be criminally accused by either the county, municipal, or state law enforcer. So before inspection, make sure you don’t possess marijuana at all—not in your pockets, clothing, and bags.

What Traveling and Woodworking Can Give You

Have you ever tried wood splitting? It’s a bit of a challenge, right? Compared to traveling you might think woodworking is more tedious and taxing. You might even think woodworking and traveling by road has nothing in common. Well, hold on tight because this article will prove you wrong.

Read the list below to know what both activities can give you.

A Sharpened Mind


Traveling, whether by road, railway, air, or whatever, is a mental exercise. It enables you to get out of your mundane routine and see new sights, hear new sounds, and experience new feelings in an unfamiliar yet beautiful world. Traveling allows your mind to be resourceful, cautious, and so on. When you travel, your concern for your safety becomes a priority, enabling you to sharpen your problem-solving and decision-making skills. The same goes when you work with wood. Woodworking, especially wood splitting, allows you to focus on the task at hand, because you can’t give half of your attention when working with tools! Woodworking also increases your ability to be familiar with tools and their uses, which is an excellent mental workout.

A Chance to Be Creative


Woodworking allows you to build different and distinct objects on your own. It fires up the creative side in you and makes you love the idea of creating based on your imagination. Traveling also enables you to try new things and make new memories with new people, food, places, etc. Both activities even boost your self-confidence and make you more independent.

A Healthier Body


When you visit another country, it’s only normal for you to go around town and transfer from one place to another. All the walking, running, jogging, and other physical activities can strengthen your body. Swimming, hiking, exploring places on foot—these can all contribute to an enhanced immune system and stronger muscles. Likewise, woodworking can contribute to a healthier body by enabling you to carry and split logs, handle tools, move materials, and more. Lifting equipment can tone your muscles in the long run and can even improve the health of your bones.

A Stress-Free Life

Woodworking and traveling both get rid of cortisol, which is the stress hormone. These activities release feel-good hormones such as oxytocin and dopamine, allowing you to forget the troubles for a while and enjoy your life. It’s probably the reason why after traveling or woodworking, you feel relaxed and exhausted at the same time. It’s a paradox, but I’m sure you know what that feels. If you don’t, it only means you need to travel more and be more involved in woodworking.
