I flew last week and when I got to my gate they had a drug dog and several people in handcuffs..
Don''t do it; plain and simple advice. The sophisticated "Sniffers" that are used to detect bomb making residue on airline passengers are also calibrated to sniff out many other types of substances, including weed. I ought to know...I''m a TSA Screener at a major airport.
My brother flies international all the time. He puts it in a sock in his luggage.
your brother is an idiot.
Best thing to do is this: day before your flight head over to DHL or FedEx or something with a package with your weed in it (be smart about how you wrap it). Make sure to drop it off just before closing time and tell them you want it overnighted to your hotel/destination. They''ll be in such a rush to get it out in time that they won''t properly check it. \
It''s definitely more expensive that trying to sneak it through airport security, but in my mind it''s totally worth it when you consider the risk of the alternative.
I''m the TSA Agent who posted earlier in this thread. Without giving away secrets, I can tell you "R5" that a sock is the first place a baggage searcher would look. The particles that give Weed the unique odor will permeate most everything. I agree with "R6", your bro is taking a big chance particularily since most countries treat possession of Marijuana much more harshly than the USA or Canada.
You can stick it up your pussy or mussy.
I was thinking of FedEx. \
Is it safer this way?
Yes, FedEx is the way to go.\
My friend flies with it by placing it at the bottom of a hand cream jar. She empties out the cream, puts the weed in and then puts the cream back on top of it, smooths it out a little, and packs it in her toiletries. She typically finds a fairly fragrantly scented cream. Just make sure the weed is well packed in a ziploc. \
Dogs have sniffed her bag and never detected. Of course that doesn''t mean she didn''t piss herself while they were doing it. LOL \
I''m with the others though...way too risky. Find a local connection once you get to your destination.
I pack mine into tight little bricks, and then I disguise it by taping an alarm clock and a drycell battery onto the bricks with duct tape.\
TSA never suspects a thing! Good luck.
Hmmm. Flying to the Virgin islands next month and going to take a few joints along. I was actually just going to carry them in my bra.
How does it feel to work at a job every day where everyone loathes you, r4?
Yeah, send it Fedex. It''s a wonderful idea. There must be no drug check systems there. Silly us for going through all the hassle of sneaking it in when we could just send drugs using Fedex.
The Drug Cartels
If you get caught R14, will it have been worth the risk?
Just dress up like a Nigerian and hide it in your underwear!!
Have none of you ever seen Locked Up Abroad?
I love my fed-ex guy cause he''s a drug dealer and he doesn''t even know it...and he''s always on time.
Let''s be real people. It''s not like it''s an urban legend that people DO get a little pot through security. Even YOUR smug self-righteous ass who I fucking LOATHE, R4.
STFU, you big fucking MaryFrau @ r21
Sure, people are able to smuggle pot onto planes. People are also caught smuggling pot onto planes. If you want to risk the consequences, you have a problem with priorities, intelligence or addiction.
Pre 9/11 I used to put a bay of weed underneath the baseball cap on my head (domestic flights only). Now, I would have to be certifiably insane to even try it.
OMG - can''t you just go a few days without smoking pot?
Jar of honey and a water tight bag. All I am saying.
If you keep the honey under 3oz....
or check it.
why does honey hide pot so well?
Before 9/11 it was totally easy, just roll a couple joints, stick them in a cigarette pack with real cigarettes, and keep them in your pocket through security.\
These days? Eh.\
I know people who''ve flown domestically with edibles checked in their luggage, but even those can smell. \
I''ve thought about it, but it''s not worth the risk, not these days.
I''ve never tried this, but I hear if you hide the weed amongst coffee beans it masks the smell since dogs can''t smell coffee.
Don''t know, but there was a story on NPR in the last decade about it being used to fool drug inspectors in the transport of opium products out of Afghanistan and even in the transport of explosive chemicals by bin Laden.
I knew a couple old potheads who spend 3 months every winter in Mexico and didn''t feel safe buying it down there. \
Their trick was to buy a pack of 35mm film, open it up and put some weed in one of the little plastic film canisters, then put it back in the box and re-shrink wrap the box so it looked like a pack of unopened film. They claimed that the combination of the plastic wrap and that strong chemical smell inside film canisters made it so that not even dogs could smell the weed. \
They also carried their old camera, of course. I know they were still doing this as recently as 2005, post-9/11.
We take my partner''s nephews and niece to Disney World every other year and it would be unbearable without weed. What we do is make pot brownies, wrap them up in plastic wrap and then in a plastic baggie along with Goldfish and other snacks in a backpack we keep with us on the plane. We never a problem.
You couldn''t pay me enough to fly with any illicit substance these days.\
Besides, it''s easy enough to find whatever you want so long as you have a general idea of where to go and ask.
OP, you mean "take" it, not bring it.\
Hmmmm. Let''s think about this, people.\
Are ALL checked bags...CHECKED? No. Not even close.\
Put it in just about anything airtight, as long as it is a small amount and you aren''t going to, say, Thailand or some other back asswards country you will get stoned to death for for having a little fuckin'' WEED.\
As a poster said upthread, Disney would be unbearable. You can fly with under 3 oz bottles of alcohol...should be able to fly with marijuana too.
Oh please people. I''ve traveled with it many times over the years and never stopped once. Of course I usually only take enough of what I plan to smoke so I''m dry on the trip back.\
And I''ve gone through those sniffers after blazing one up in the parking garage. Didn''t register at all.
It used to be that Fed-Ex was entirely indifferent to the use of its service for drugs. Remember? An "American key" was 2.0 pounds, rather than 2.2, because that was the maximum for Fed-Ex packages. Basically, Fed-Ex reasoned that so long as you paid the freight, it made no real difference to them what you shipped. Is this still true?
How did Peaches Geldof sneak heroin into the US? \
"She told me she had a bit of heroin she brought with her from the UK and asked me if I was game. I was so the hunt began."
R41, flying private, maybe? I used to be able to fly a private plane from DC to NY when I traveled for work, I wouldn''t think twice about carrying anything on there. No security, no scans, no dogs. Nobody cares.
Too bad it isn''t true, I''d bebuying fucking stock in Fed Ex theyd'' be making so much money.
I used to wrap it really well and put it in my taint but I don''t think that will work now due to the nudie cameras.\
NOt sure how to get it through next time. Any other ideas?
It''s simply not worth the risk of a fine, and possibly a criminal record. But mostly, it''s not worth the risk of a strip search!\
My friend used to put weed in her top pocket and never had any trouble (again, pre 9/11).
A friend''s sister was suffering horrible side-effects of chemotherapy, as she was losing the battle against cancer. It was awful. \
My friend asked me if I knew any way to get some medical marijuana...and, well, I did. The ill sister was living in St. Louis, we''re in California.\
I packed up three or four excellent varieties, in ziplock bags and glass jars, and shipped the package to her U.S.P.S. This was during some of the worst winter storms the middle west had seen in years - including an ice storm that took out the power for days.\
There was no confirmation of delivery, and my friend became terrified that the jig was up and I would be arrested any minute. \
Well, when the power came back on the sister called, laughing. The package had arrived safely - and positively REEKING.\
It did help her appetite, and she felt a little better...didn''t stop the cancer from taking her, though.
Just wanted to share
You can also use one of those home vaccum seal contraptions to keep the smell from getting out. Put it in a video cassette storage box and priority mail it with a fake return address.
Are people really still doing this, R33? We used those little black film containers for grass (as it was known then) in 1966. Sometimes the old ways are the best.
Saran wrap, Vaseline, "Bend Over"
AKA recipe for a good night, weed or no weed
I often fly with weed.... but it has to be some really, really good shit to get me there.
Ghost of George Carlin
[quote]5 words: Saran wrap, Vaseline, "Bend Over"\
Would the newer airport scanners be able to detect that and trigger a full-body search?
I''m sorry about your friend, R46.\
R51 I''d assume they''d only get a clue if you had eaten bad Mexican the night before.
OP here. Thanks for the tips. I''m headed on vacation with some friends for a week. Not planning on bringing a shit ton, but maybe $50 worth. I''m also only bringing a carry on. \
Reading this thread, dont think I want to fly with it. \
Now Im thinking, since we''ll be staying in a time share, I will FedEx it in a baggie in a bottle of shampoo along with other liquid toiletries/cologne/etc. to the place.
The latter sounds like a good idea OP but damn you really pussied out.
OP, you've gotten some good and bad advice on this thread, the bad coming from the supposed TSA screener at R3. In reality, TSA is phasing out sniffers because they don't work worth a shit; they're instead stepping up use of ETD machines (the thing that they use to check for explosive traces after swabbing your suitcase), and those don't detect drugs. Regardless, not that many airports even have sniffers, and even at airports that do, only a small handful of passengers go through them because they're so much more time-consuming than x-ray machines. Personally, unless I know drug dogs are likely to be present, I just wear tighty-whities to the airport, stick a bag in my crack (not *up*, just in), and then remove it and put it in a scent-masking container in my carry-on in the airport bathroom.
FedEx is also a good idea. Placing it in a bottle of liquid is not. At altitude bottles contract, and sometimes they explode upon reentry. Bottle caps also can come off. What my friends do instead is stick a bag in a plastic jar of Gif peanut butter, the scent of which also throws off dogs.
I suppose it should go without saying that you should use a fake name when dropping off the package (and paying with cash) and a fake name to deliver to.
[quote]Gif peanut butter\
I don''t think you can FedEx liquids.
Can''t u just buy it at your destination.
I''ve worn it in my bra and put it in the suitcase. I really think if it''s a small amount for your own use, they don''t care. They must see it all the time.
It''s pathetic that this is even an issue.\
Pot. People enjoy it. Brings relief to the sick. Our society has just not advanced in the last 30 years. Why is that?
But it is advancing on the pot front, r61. How many states have medical marijuana laws now? And California''s going to be voting on legalizing it across the board.
[quote]Can''t you just buy it at your destination?\
No. Not as general rule.
I have a Question then. What if i jsut put a small bag off weed in side a Shampoo bottle(with shampoo ontop of weed to cover it). and put that along with other regular things. Then i put the bag under the Plain instead of making it a carry on. That basically makes it perfectly fine to bring right? i mean iv taken a pipe with some weed and put it in some socks. and put it under the plain. never had a problem. so is it better to take carry on or under the plain? as for ppl who work at airport reading this. Why must you hate us :( we just wanna get high. let it slide! you guys serve jack, and other alch. That kills WAYYYYY more than weed dose. and noone is stupid enough to smoke on the plain we jsut wana take it with us. sooo whats the big deal.
My weed man always put it in the bottom of a baby powder container and then filled it with the baby powder. Apparently, TSA''s don''t let dogs near baby powder because it destroys the dog''s ability to smell (it being ground up glass and all).
I still just roll a joint or two and leave it in my cigs with my carry-on. Never got pulled aside. Of course, when I travel it''s usually to see my in-laws, so I don''t care if I get arrested before I get there. Jail is less stressful.
What about flying with a small bottle of poppers? It''s flammable liquid, so, it makes me nervous that they''ll label me a terrorist if I throw a bottle in with my socks.... should I just buy a new bottle when I get into town?
Use those locking airtight containers you can buy at WalMart. Best is to put a small one inside a bigger one. Put it in your checked or mail it.%0D\
Should do the trick
r65 - except that baby powder today is not talcum powder, it''s cornstarch and dogs can sniff it.
Idiots who pull this will be arrested guaranteed
I fly with weed all the time, and I always smell like it and have never been caught. I just crotch the weed and pack the edibles in a gift bag. If you''re going to mail it, do it overnight through the postal service, not FedEx!
I''ve also heard about the coffee bean thing. If I were sending some pot, I would get one of those gourmet coffee gift sets, hide the baggie deep inside the coffee sack, reseal it and then for good measure gift wrap it and put a birthday card on top, just in case! And use a fake return address. I don''t think sending a gift pack to a hotel address is a particularly normal thing to do, though.
Are you guys so fucking addicted you can''t go without weed for a trip? Have a glass of wine. Your an idiot if you try.
Funny that the last time I flew with weed in my bag (I don''t do it often) was to Disney in 2004 or so. I wonder how many people at that park are stoned out of their gourds on a given day.
Disneyland is a blast when stoned. %0D\
Have carried a small quantity of weed in my lady parts as recently as 2007. They better not touch my junk!
I give it to my little neice to carry. She''s only 7, no one would ever suspect.
I used to put coke in my pockets and just go thru security.\
Post 9.11 - I wouldn''t carry a black market CD much less drugs with me.\
You can''t go without smoke for a couple of days?
All you gays smoking weed at Disneyland, where do you go to DO it?
Need to know asap
I only fly with a small amount hidden in my checked bag -- never on or with me, and never to Asia, Australia, or New Zealand, where I''ve seen dope/bomb dogs inspecting bags AFTER you''ve entered and cleared customs. %0D\
Thanks for the sock tip, Mr. TSA; that''s where I used to put it!
Not worth the stress and effort.
I ate pot brownies on my last visit to Disneyland. (Though we were in already L.A. so we just drove there.)
[quote]Best is to put a small one inside a bigger one. %0D\
I was told that baggage screeners look specifically for containers inside of other containers, because that''s a classic drug hiding strategy.
I thought sending something illegal through the mail was a federal offence, not to mention additional charges for your package crossing state lines.%0D\
Also, I''d be sweating like a whore in church taking pot through airport security. I may as well put a sign on my forehead.%0D\
Soooooo not worth it.
Easy, OP. Pack it with coffee grounds in your luggage. Problem solved.
I grind mine up and put it in a medication bottle mixed among my others.%0D\
I''ve had the bag ziplock bag on top of my carry-on as it''s gone through x-ray and never have been caught. It''s not like the x-ray sees each individual pill in the bottle, just the shape of the bottle (if that).
Back to the previous poppers question : has anyone ever been stopped at an airport for a poppers bottle? I was once detained entering the U.S. (in a car) at the Canadian border when the prick-ish guard searched my luggage and found a small poppers bottle. (I was let go about ten minutes later by a nicer female guard who questioned me; I sheepishly said the bottle was "room de-odorizer").
While we''re on the subject, what are the beagles that wander around customs when you return to the US on a flight actually looking for? It is drugs, and not illegal fruits and vegetables, right?
Flying into LAX in a few weeks from STL. Anyone know if STL uses the new machine yet?\
In the past I have been okay with a few joints hidden on my person, but am wondering if I should put it in the checked bag.\
Could I do without it? Perhaps, but this is a time to relax and pot helps my pain. My fellow vacationers appreciate the remarkable change in my demeanor when I am pain free..
Make sure you pack it (a brownie, a cookie, whatever) along with a sandwich so it looks like a meal.
R67, just buy it there...that''s what we do.
If you are going to Disney in Orlando and need any kind of drug, rent a car, go to the Parlaiment House and hang around the parking lot for about 30 seconds. Make sure you have a car with a trunk.
More opinions please..
The amount of misinformation on this post is hilarious. If you are trying to mask the scent of marijuana from a dog, don''t bother as it is next to impossible. Dog detectable scents are left by microscopic particles that can and will permeate through everything including liquids, sealed plastics, and alternative forms of THC like brownies. Masking doesn''t work for dogs since dogs separate scents as opposed to humans who usually just smell the most obv/potent one. On the other hand, if you are trying to mask the pot for human smell detection almost anything works.\
Anyone who says "I put it in honey/peanut butter/coffee" or "sealed it in a bag covered in ammonia cloth" and avoided detection most likely avoided it since no detection or surveillance was being used in that particular instance. Something only like 3%-7% of checked bags are being inspected via dogs/xray with only 10% of security agents using these dogs correctly. I hope this helps.
I just put my poppers in my liquids bag - they are legal and I''ve never been questioned about them by anyone.

K. Powers *tries* so hard to sound authoritative, but fails. My younger brother is a massive pothead -- he was a judge of the Amsterdam Cannabis Cup at the ripe old age of 16 -- who not only has a huge hydroponic setup in his basement but also travels with what Snoop Dogg would call the "sticky, ICKY shit" on a monthly basis. Not only has he never been caught -- and this includes numerous international customs gates where pot is more stringently regulated than domestically or in Europe/elsewhere in N. America -- but he routinely trafficks large quantities straight under the noses of authorities and these supposed wonder dogs that can sniff THC out of anything ... and he's now 26, so he's been doing and learning the tricks for over a decade. I'm not even remotely going to divulge his methods here, but suffice it to say it's not difficult if you know what you're doing, and if you're traveling either domestically or to a destination where you know there won't be dogs, stuffing it down your bra or strapping it to your taint will 99.9% of the time do the trick.
buy a pouch of "cherry Blend" pipe tobacco and mix the pot in it...The quantity has to be small...about three joints ,,buy a cheap pipe like a corn cobb , never smoked , put it next to the cherry blend like you are a real pipe smoker and it will work...well it has for me , for the past 15 years...the dogs are supposed to smell for bombs not the residue of bongs...the cherry blend is so strong and nasty that even the dogs puke when they smell it , not to say what happens to the TSA agent...no one is going to pore through those pieces of tobacco to find a few bits of pot except YOU when you arrive at your destination....try it...you will like it
You could also send it via USPS. They don't do any scanning because of the sheer volume they handle.
Just use one of those Priority Mail envelopes, pack it well and that's it.
@ R18 that's a very stupid thing to say .
Are you the pilot?
Potheads are annoying.
when i went to mexico i simply wore baggy sweat pants and put my weed in a M&M container and tapped it to my leg

R93, you with your 'particle theory' again. Be gone.
I've stuffed weed into my minty floss container many times, and have walked by the drug dogs in the airport undetected.
Granted, I'm not bringing a whole 1/8, just a couple small buds for the trip.
Back in the old days, I stuffed a few joints into my cigarette pack.
I don't think I'd be brave or foolish enough to try something like that now.
Can dogs sniff out liquid thc? Anyone has experience with this?
I'm travelling abroad soon and am planning to apply a few drops of that to my cigarettes so that they'll look just like.. normal cigarettes. There's no way I will get busted right? I mean the liquid is colorless and odorless, and it dries out within seconds after application on the cigs.
r106, I'd spend and hour with a drunk over a pothead any day of the week. You're all obese idiots who can't remember your own names and think everyone else wants to listen to you talk about the joys of weed. There is no more annoying drug addict than potheads.
I've flown with coke on me plenty. Not anymore though. Not worth the trouble.
But weed? No. Even the smallest amount can tip off the dogs.
R111 you'll be fine.
But you're still a moron.
r116, potheads are all morons. Let him try it!
Jeez, just find a local connection if you're that desperate. People are so damn lazy these days.
This can only end in tears.
Flying with drugs is one of the most stupid things ever. Most of Asia has the death penalty or long prison sentences if caught with drugs.
You can get a prison sentence in S. Korea for just chewing gum.
[R114] Seriously, you don't even know what you're fucking talking about! I haven't gone 7 days without weed for the past 3 years and I'm about to do to college. And guess what! I have straight fucking A's so fucking try it sometime. Helps you remember shit. Ironic huh?
Don't ship it USPS. I catch people every single day with Weed in peanut butter and Coffee cans. maybe fedex works but I literally get at least one a day here at work at USPS.
In korea and APO addresses, Every single stinking box is scanned and the drug dog just sits right after the scanner. The dog and xray machine both catch the peanut butter trick. Just a heads up.
what if you put 2 joints in a cigarette pack and take it on a plane? will it work? if not will it work if i do that but send it out?
Couldn't you put it in a condom and carry it inside you?
ALWAYS use the USPS to move illicit items. FedEx and others can open your mail. It's in the fine print. It's not illegal because it's not federal mail. The US postal service has to obtain a search warrant, however. So assuming your packaging is legit, USPS is alot less risky.

I've taken weed through LAX, JFK and SFO within the last 4 years. I have carried on both edibles and straight up pot (only a couple of joints worth). Was I worried? Not really. If you look nervous, they'll pick you out of line to search.

I always ship my hootcha kauna juana via USPS. Most of the time it's waiting on me. A few times it was delivered the next day.

I just flew with weed twice. I wrapped it up in toilet paper and well acted like it wasa tampon. The machine didn't catch it. I am not saying to do it..just be wise! I also put it in the bottom of a deodorant stick. Just take the deodarent out and put the weed in then put the deodarant stick back on the top.
I'm leaving out of lax on it early early week day flight and wanted to take like 3 pre rolled joint with me any suggestions on the best way to carry ... takin jolly ranchers and lollipops too but I've done that before in my pocket.. so how to light a joint in my carry on in a cigarette or what
If I wrap 5 grams in a baggy, then 3 condums and tie a tampon string around it and stick it up my pussy, do you think I'll get caught?
I'm R134, I tried what I asked if I could do and I got it with me fine, no dogs or anything. I successfully carried 5 grams internationally.
Its easy people just buy a private plane and you can take your weed wherever or at least I can
[quote]Just a 34yr old woman trying to get some medical help..
Sure you are, narc at R128.
I find an old lady in line, and stick it in her bag. Then she goes through. Then I get it from her after she is through security.
Oh sure a couple times they get caught, but who cares.
I've brought it back from jamaica (packed in coffee beans)but never could figure out a way to bring it out of the country. Always figured if I couldn't find it where I was going I didn't need it that badly.
Just took some to Vegas from Seattle this week. Carried edibles (fudge), tincture, and three different kinds of pot totaling about a half ounce or so in sandwich-sized zip locks in my soft briefcase. Went through security no problem. On the way back I packed it in my suitcase, which I checked (Southwest). Also no problem.
I think I've made my decision on this.
Haters take note: in 140 odd comments no-one has claimed to have actually been caught with weed in an airport.
If you grind it up and pack it so it's flattened, it opens up a million other places it can be very discreetly stashed. Just make sure there's something to mask the odor - I usually put it in a small ziplock bag, then put that ziplock into another small ziplock along with a dryer sheet. I won't say where I hide the bag for fear of jinxing but I'm sure a creative pothead can come up with something.
But don't travel with nugs. Grind and flatten. Then use your imagination. I've done it literally dozens of times with no incident at all. My one close call was when I totally didn't realize I had a pipe in a bag I hadn't used in forever, and the TSA screener pulled it out. I said it was a tobacco pipe, she sort of gave me a look, and let it slide. It was on a trip home, so I didn't have any actual bud. (We all know that one, right? Don't bring weed home. That would be a stupid thing to get busted for, so why run up the odds?)
But gosh, wouldn't it be nice if were just fucking LEGAL and I could just pop into a coffeehouse in the city where I'm going and not have to deal with any of this bullshit??? Why should my drunken family get to indulge their intoxicant of choice on holidays but vacation for me means cold turkeying? Ridiculous.
I should add that in my above post I'm talking about domestic travel. I've actually not ever tried going through international customs with weed, as that makes me genuinely nervous.
Internationally, I've never failed to score weed at a local gay establishment. The bars where the boy hustlers hang out seem to work best.
Anyone in Australia successfully flown with weed?
i was thinking about hollowing out a tampon and stuffing some grinded up weed in it and then inserting it as if i was just wearing a tampon. would a body scanner pick up on that? i'm flying from miami to madrid and wont be able to cop for a few days so i wanted to bring a gram with me
There is one crucial concept I haven't heard yet which is: After sealing the aromatic contraband in an airtight vessel your hands will place the smell on the outside of package no matter how airtight it is. It is imperative that you thoroughly wash hands and package after it is sealed.
If I have a little smell of weed on my clothes and phone case will I be ok of it is in the hold of the plane??
I brought weed onto a mediterranean cruise once. flying from louisiana to italy, 2 stops. I put a little nugget into a bag of fake and had it in my pocket.
One of the most important parts of bringing things like that through airports is being confident, LOOKING normal and harmless, having short hair, and dressing conservatively. No offense to anyone, dont take this the wrong way but it does make it easier being white colored, so keep that in mind when strategizing.
I think if you wanted to bring something home to mail it in most quantities. also make it so that an x ray scan wouldnt pick up what you were mailing. for example, I got mailed blotters. the guy used card stock and glue to seal the bag in between, then put it in an envelope, in another envelope, so that it probably looked like a letter
I wanna take a couple grams (about 5-6 joints) with me from London to Lebanon. Im not really concerned about the lebanese security, because I know they are not that up tight about people arriving (especially cuz im lebanese). Im just worried about the security, dogs and scanners at Heathrow Airport. Does anyone have any advice?
I was thinking of triple bagging it, then putting it in a deodorant stick (under the deo of course). And i was gonna put that in my luggage NOT my carry-on bag.
I would really love a reply cuzz im traveling in a week, thanks!!!!
I have 5 of the biggest weed farms in jamaica and I need away to send it abroad and fro them to sell it ( distribution) I want my money as my drugs take off or minimum a week.
I stick it up my ass. I don't carry more than a gram or so sealed in saran wrap and I take it out once I get past security.
I want to hear from women that have taken weed with them on airplane, by insert the weed in your kity cat? Does the scanner pick it up? I would never try it, out of the country!I fly within the U.S only. That seems to be the best way!!! Women we have this....If the scanners don't pick it up. No worried about the dogs. I never see them at the airport. I fly out of Houston, TX all the time. I want to hear from these women that have done this method. Again this seem to be the best way a women can carry it. Once you get through security, you go in the restroom and pull it out. It was my means of carrying my weed, before the scanners. And they are at both Houston's airport.
Fellow marijuana enthusiasts,
I am pleased to report that the "tighty whitey method" remains a safe way to travel domestically (not internationally) with small quantities of mj. I have used this method successfully on numerous occasions in the past, but on my most recent trip (August 2012) I was concerned about the new "body scan" technology being rolled out in major airports (including my own EWR).
For the unenlightened, the tighty whitey method involves grinding up a small quantity of mj (I typically do an 1/8) and compressing it into a flat, dense nug. The nug is then wrapped up in saran wrap and placed inside tighty whiteys or briefs under the nut-sack or in the "grundle" region. Make sure to PRACTICE this method before you travel. After a while, you will forget that the package is even there at all.
If, when heading through a TSA security checkpoint, you are sent to one of the backscatter or millimeter wave machines, simply OPT OUT. Politely say, "I would like to opt out of this machine." The TSA agent will probably not even ask for an explanation, but he/she will inform you that this decision will result in a thorough pat down.
Prepare to be patted down all over, including your ball-bag. The screener will actually brush your sack with his hand, but remain calm. Repeat the following mantra in your head: “Airports are not dragnets for small amounts of mary jane.” As long as the package is small, you keep your cool, and you have practiced the method, the screener will notice nothing and send you on your merry way.
Note: DO NOT take the package out of your tighty whiteys until you have reached your final destination. Before you board the plane you could be subjected to a random bag check or pat down. Keep the package in its spot until you reach your final destination.
For those worried about "drug dogs" understand this: 1) the few dogs in airports on domestic flights are looking for explosives, not drugs and 2) dogs are NOT used directly on people because of potential liability.
Finally, I would NEVER recommend traveling with a stash in your checked luggage. You never know what could happen when your bags are out of your hands. Your bags will be x-rayed and possibly hand searched. There is a chance you will get lucky. But there is also a chance you will run into an overzealous bag screener with an axe to grind. I especially advise against putting your stash into any sort of bottle of liquid (shampoo, peanut butter, etc.). There are many documented cases of people being caught using this method. The TSA has seen this a million times. Use your heads people.
Special thanks to user Bart Simpson who posted on this tried and true method extensively in another thread.
Be safe and stay stoned my friends. :)
Pot is easy to get in the Virgin Islands. Dont take a chance.
I have a sort of related question. If I pack a teeny tiny amount of cocaine into one of the boxes I'm having moved across the country with a van line, am I likely to get caught? Do they have drug dogs at the weigh stations or those machines that can pick up minute traces of coke dust?
I was given the eighteenth degree in Philadelphia on my way home from Amsterdam. We had nothing- I had a pouch of tobacco because I roll my own cigs that had a crumb of weed in it because I rolled a joint over my pouch while in Amsterdam. Needless to say both my wife and I had all of our luggage ripped apart, we had gifts we had purchased for friends confscated things like: a metal ashtray that had a marijuana leaf on it t-shirts, a couple lighters, rolling papers ect. We also were strip searched during which the TSA told me that his superior officer told him that he wanted to call the cops and have me put in jail. They found nothing (because I had nothing) but we missed our connector flight, had to re-enter the bag check area (where they took more things that they didnt take at the massive search) and because of all this hassle I ended up leaving my laptop at the first check where we had spent 4 hrs being combed over. When I arrived home I called the airport and spoke directly to the agent who had overseen our search. He told me he didnt see that anyone had left a computer- but I am 100% certain I left the laptop on his searching station. I'm convinced to this day that asshat stole my computer right after he tried to wreck my life.
Do not take anything across the borders anymore. While there may be a lot of ppl who get away with it- you dont want to take the chance of running into the same type of ignorants that I ran into- yeah, the type of people who would try to throw you in jail for having a crumb of weed- then steal your laptop as a side payment/tip.
As an addendum- I travel through and into Philadelphia at least once to twice a year. IF the TSA who posted in this thread is the same person who searched me that time I have some words for you
Fuck You you piece of shit power tripping scumbag lowlife.
I hope I never see you out walking through a dark alley behind a bar when Im in town one time.
Your face is burned into my memory I could see you when Im 80 years old and clearly recognize you like I had just met you yesterday.
purchase your bag at your destination, much safer.
For those of you using a plastic bag, not all plastic bags are created alike. You should look for a freezer-weight bag, as those block odor significantly better than a standard sandwich bag.
Ladies: I have flown domestically (US) at least five times using the "tampon" method, twice being Rapiscanned, and nothing has ever been suspected. I would hesitate to describe it as fool proof--nothing is-- but besides the fact that the scanning machines cannot see under the skin there, I honestly believe that no one at the major airports I pass thru is interested in pulling an 50 bucks worth of personal use pot out of a young white lady's poom-poom. I usually bring no more than 1/4oz, wrap the baggie in several layers of clear packing tape, then cover in two condoms with a string attached. Voila. After screening I remove it and put it in my purse. Keep in mind that the longer it is inside your body will warm it and you may start to smell like weed. As far as flying internationally, I cannot vouch for that, esp if youre going to a country with frightening drug laws (southeast Asia, for example). Finally, sometimes my friends don't want to smoke my "pussy weed" even tho I wrap it very carefully in many layers of material. More for me I guess!
Anyone fly to Tahiti with edibles? I have a card in CA, and have some heavy duty "bhang bars" that I was considering breaking up into chunks and adding to a bag of trail mix. They are professionally (machine) created, they have no major weed scent, etc. I would not check but would bring as inflight snacks. . .
From what I hear, Tahiti is a difficult place to find weed.
I appreciate any feedback, Honeymooning tomorrow!
Whether or not you think it smells like weed, the dogs will be able to smell it, and when flying internationally, non-packaged food products draw attention. You can try vacuum-sealing it and try to make it appear like it's a packaged food, but it's really not worth the risk. Anyway, you're going on your honeymoon - you can smoke/eat weed anytime - do you want your honeymoon to be memorable and enjoyable, or do you want it to blend in with every other day of your life?
Geez Louise and her Hollywood Blondes.
I just grind mine fine. Put it in a medicine bottle. Add pills. Put in ziplock with other medication bottles. Placed into my under-seat carry-on placed on top of the electrical devices and their matching cords so when the x-ray hits it, all they see is the outline of the bottle among all the cords and cameras and I'm through.
I've traveled over a dozen times this way and have not been stopped yet.
163 replies suggest that contrary to popular opinion it is an addiction. I love drinking, but never take it abroad, even if the alcoholic beverage is not available; fine- I just enjoy my holiday.
What about mixing in big nugs with some other type of cooking herb. Like big enough nugs that you can distinguish it later after dumping the contents?
Just a thought...
Can you answer my question about moving vans and cocaine?
I haven't flown regularly since the early 80s, when I'd visit my sister every summer in California. I got stoned on most of the flights, I'd go to the bathroom just to smoke a bunch of quick hits, it was easy. I don't remember exactly how I got the stuff on board, but they didn't really inspect anything in those days. I'd never try it today, of course.
O.K girls and boys how about a 50+ ladie with a tampon flying into Vegas from Western Canada any other ideas???
middle age stoner
Hi its me (168) Is checked luggage better than carry-on and I am talking about 1/8
middle age stoner
will getting a posh pair of black 'work' shoes cutting the heel in half and cutting a small box in the middle it then putting bud in it and glueing the heel back together and using a sharpie to go over the edges and make sure it is undetectable? i pretty sure it will be air tight and smell proof when finished but just not sure about it being undetectable?
Why are most 'out' homosexuals on drugs?
I'm in NY where cigs are now $10+ so I make my own cigs w/an injector & filter tubes. I make special 'hybrids' w/tobacco & weed, stick 'em into empty cig boxes and carry them like I would any other cigarettes. There's no intent to distribute and obviously for personal use so nobody really cares or bothers to look since it is so out in the open. I store my weed with violet candies to eliminate the scent sometimes. Just a little weed is packed closest to the filter and the rest with tobacco. It's such a small amount to help me get through on vacations and not be tempted to pick up a drink.
I brought it through the airport like 15 years ago. I bought some real good stuff in SF and was told to stick it in with my soap. No problem. I am not sure if there were drug sniffing dogs then.
I know it's an old thread, but will still put my 2 cents in.
I regularly travel with my E-cig with no problems whatsoever. Most of the time, I have it in my purse or openly in a holder around my neck. Sometimes I get asked "what is this" - "electronic cigarette" - "OK". I travel from US to various countries in Europe.
I'm going in a Royal Caribbean Cruiser, from Fort-Lauderdale Port to Bahamas.
How strong is the security for weed in this cruiser line? Similar to airports or easier?
Suggestions to take like 8 grams? Is it easy to buy it on Bahamas?
In the old days, easy to do. In this day and age, just plain stupid to even attempt.
I am flying within the country through southwest and was going to cut open a hackysack and empty out the sand. Then, replace it with grinded up weed (1/8). Then, re-sew it and put it in my luggage under the plan at like the very bottom of my bag. What do you think? Any advice?
anyone have a opinion on packing weed in a few cigs and getting on a plan should pack or carry on?
In the pre-9/11 days it was always pretty easy to bring a small stash in my cigarette pack anytime I flew from CA to HI. But of course, that was domestic travel, so security/inspection wasn't as tight.
I would never do it now, though, with security being what it is. And I usually don't have much trouble scoring weed once I get to Hawaii anyway.
Bake into brownies, plastic wrap them and carry them on with the rest of your inflight meal. If you are questioned, you have a gluten intolerance and must bring your own food.
Alternatively, get stoned before you leave and buy local if you have that sort of social ease and grace.
I CAN'T BELIEVE WEED IS LEGAL IN THE US!!!! AND THAT THERE IS NO THREAD ON THAT!!!!
DATALOUNGE ARE YOU REALLY MOMMY CENTRAL NOW?
oh. I'm screaming.
I know! Where is that thread?!
Travel guru Rick Steves was apparently a big donor to Washington state's legalization initiative, so he probably has LOTS of experience in this area.
[quote] I don't remember exactly how I got the stuff on board, but they didn't really inspect anything in those days.
Ah, the good old 1980s, where you could pretty much pack a handgun in your carry-on and still get on the plane. And as soon as take-off was complete, the stewadress would come around with the beverage cart, hand you a glass of (free) scotch and light up your cigarette for you. Those were the days!
Am I the only one who finds nothing more tiresome than a pothead? Living a few years in Austin TX, the marijuana scumbag captial of the world, will do that to you.
No, Judgie, you idiot. Because you are only seeing the potheads you speak of and not noticing the numerous others around you who act "normal" because they don't act like those idiots you describe. Get it?
The best way is to sprinkle it all over the luggage and just shake it out onto a piece of paper after your land.
Or, pack a few spices and put the pot in the Oregano jar.
Cheryl always puts weed in her pussy.
Come on Datalounge, where's our "USA Legalizes Marijuana" thread????
Some rumors and urban myths dispelled..
Dogs smell individual scents, not the collection like humans do. A beef stew smells to us like a beef stew. To a dog, it smells like beef, carrots, celery and each individual ingredient. Thus trying to "mask" the scent with coffee or other powerful scents is valid only to conceal from human screened bags.
NOTE- some head shops sell smell-proof bags; these are HIGHLY recommended. A smell proof baggie in a medicine container works in a pinch.
I've flown with pot many times, both domestically (around Cali, to Chicago, NYC, Atlanta, Texas) and internationally (London, Mexico). I have a valid CA prescription which I keep with me at ALL TIMES. No, the FAA doesn't recognize state law but it gives you some excuse if you're caught plus I never take more than a gram, if that.
DO NOT TAKE A USED PIPE. Take papers, or better yet, buy papers after you land. At minimum, take a NEW UNUSED pipe. OPTIONAL- every hotel has a bible, and that paper is really thin.. 8-) Just get some with the least amount of print; it doesn't taste great but hey.. I put a thumbtack in my bag and get a can of coke when I get there..
MY STRATEGY- PART 1- minimize risk and exposure. A certain percentage of people at the airport are a) high; b) have handled pot recent; c) brushed up against someone who has; d) etc.. leaving many people with traces of residue somewhere on their person or luggage. Obviously there is some threshold or there would be several or more people detained on every flight- which obviously there is not.
PART II - minimize contact transfer. DOMESTIC. Pack your weed the day before in something water/air tight. Then wash the packed container (and your hands) with soap and water and set it aside. This is a good test- if water leaks into the weed when you wash the container, it was a bad choice anyway. Find something else to pack your weed in. The next day, after a shower and fresh change of cloths, pack normally. I put it in the pocked of some rolled up jeans (with many pairs). I pack the prescription (or copy of and keep the original in my carry-on) somewhere close by or in the same pocket. RISK- if you go to great length to conceal your weed, you risk "the concealment told us you knew it was wrong to transport weed" so YMMV.
INTERNATIONAL/EXTRA PARANOID- Minimize transfer as described above, plus added security. Without touching the week, transfer to as small a vacuum sealing bag as you can. Use a food vacuum sealer to suck all the air out creating a TIGHT thin, long little nugget of pot. I then re-seal this in another vacuum bag. Trim off the edges to make it as small as possible. Wrap in duct tape TIGHTLY. Put this long thin weed pack into an opaque bottle of shampoo, place in your cosmetics/overnight bag, put into the luggage and check it. Getting the weed pack out afterwords can be a bit of a bitch, but just pack some tweezers and you'll be fine :-) Just don't tear the package trying to get it out.
OPTIONAL- mentioned earlier- jar of face cream or hair product. Scoop it out, put weed pack inside, put product back in and smooth it over.
After you've done this once or twice, you can do all the above in less than 5 minutes. The payoff is that you arrive at your destination with the weed of your liking vs WTF you might end up with via a street buy.
I just flew with weed from Burbank to Vegas in the form of tincture a week ago. I just emptied a small contact lens solution bottle, squeezed the tincture in, put the lid on and placed it in my carryon. No problems whatsoever at either airport.
I can't even remember the last time I saw a drug sniffing dog at the airport, checking carryons.
I can't stand pot heads. Give me a junkie or a drunk anyday over the pothead psychos. They're all addicted and manic depressive and in denial and rageaholics without their weed and they have terrible senses of humor and are completely unreliable and boring as fuck.
Just out of curiosity, R192, what do you do with a "tincture?" Smoke it? Chug it? Make brownies?
So edibles are the best way?
I've sent weed before. Many times.
Not a large amount, a few bowls.
Just wrap, wrap, wrap in plastic bag, foil, duct tape, whatever you have, then put it in some tightly packed coffee.
Never been busted.
Thank you, r191.
I've seen drug sniffing dogs in the past at EWR (international) and HNL (mainland arrivals). The international trains into France from Amsterdam and Switzerland can be screened by dogs either onboard or at the station upon arrival.
On the concealment issue...I flew with a guy from Amsterdam to DC who just stuck rolled up joints in a pack of cigarettes and planned to tell customs that he forgot they were there.
Mailing it is another option. Silk Road vendors apparently use the vacuum seal technique, inserted in a DVD case or something. Europeans mail themselves pot from Amsterdam the same way (or in a flat envelope, with mixed results).
I would say almost no chance of getting busted with edibles except by a drug-sniffing dog, who are very very sensitive and masking scents do not work.
R194 The tincture is just the extracted THC in liquid form. It comes in a bottle and you just put a dropper full under your tongue and wait for it to kick in similar to an edible. I prefer it over edibles because it doesn't seem to produce an overwhelming feeling of being stoned out of your mind. It's the bee's knees.
I have flown with edibles many times. You can see the drug sniffing dogs at the security line, so throw away the weed if you see them.
After you've sealed it in a ziplock, smoosh all the air out and seal tightly. Double bag if you like. Roll up tightly.
Purchase some paraffin wax at the local grocery. Melt on your stove, dip the tightly rolled bag in the wax, let cool. Do this at least three times.
Wash your hands between each dip and the entire package after all dips.
Then stash where you think best. I've used homemade jelly, stuff it down the middle of the jar...makes a great gift!
If you are careful with package and hand washing and limit any chance of residue on your clothes, the wax seals in the smell perfectly...
im going to miami and i have a eighth in 3 socks stuffed in my shoes...my product is in a smelly proof bag inside of another smelly proof bag..and i am a cannibus patient should i be fine since im checking the luggage?
i write this while i am taking a bong hit. First never carry weed on board, always pack it in your checked bags. Both of these methods have worked for me.
You need 1 teeny ziploc, a single serve coffee in foil envelope, tape, knife, glue stick. optional greeting card with envelope
1.Open the pouch in a manner that will allow you to put in the ziploc and reseal to appear untampered with.
2.Put the weed into the teeny ziploc, before you completely zip it closed, suck the air out, now zip it closed. wrap tape around ziploc all way, then place it into the foil pouch with the coffee. Reseal pouch using glue stick. Write yourself a bon voyage card stick the pouch in with the card, put between aricle of clothing.
I recently did this for my daughter went to study in Florence Italy. I didnt tell her she found the card.
On the seam of a tennis ball make a small cut big enough, deposit your stash, glue closed. this worked when i went to thailand.
ive smoked up right in front of the airport entrance once, at the end of where the cars let you off. nada.
Flying out of Paris, Ive brought joints in my tobacco (i use loose tobacco), had a suit on, and my tobacco in my suit pocket. nada.
then again, weed possession for personal use (i think up to 3grams) isn't illegal in most of Europe... the way it should be.
also, I've never seen a sniffer dog at the airport, ever, and I fly quite often...
