Flying High: Oregon Allows Marijuana on In-State Flights
Many people have complained that airports are going to pot, but this is getting ridiculous.
A new policy in Oregon will allow passengers traveling on flights within the state through Portland International Airport to legally transport up to one ounce of marijuana.
According to Fox 12 Oregon, airport officials explained that if a TSA agent finds marijuana on a traveler, they will notify the police. The police will then check to see if the individual is of legal age, carrying under the legal limit and flying within the state.
Passengers traveling out of state will have to leave their pot behind because transporting it to another place is still a federal offense.
Smoking of any kind is still illegal on all commercial aircraft in the U.S., so travelers won't be able to get high as they fly the friendly skies.
"I don't care if they got it in their pocket. I could care less as long as they can't smoke it in the airport, you can't smoke it in the airplane. So depends if wherever they're going if it's legal, that's fine with me," Arnold Lucht told Fox 12.
"I'm not anti-marijuana, but I am pro-hairspray. I would really like to have some hairspray or some shampoo," Verena Douglas said. "What's shampoo going to do to somebody? Why can't I take my shampoo on a plane? I think it's a little lopsided."
