You may have wondered what the best way to travel with weed is if you have booked a stay in a cannabis-friendly hotel with Bud and Breakfast.
Once you have found your dream accommodation in your desired location, getting there is the next thing that you need to think about. If you are traveling to your destination and it is in the same state as the one in which you live, the same rules will apply to traveling anywhere and consuming anywhere at home.
If you are traveling out of state for your weed vacation, however, it is very important that you look up the rules and regulations surrounding cannabis use and transportation in the place that you are looking to travel too. Don’t get caught out by making assumptions — always double check.
The safest way to travel with marijuana is to drive. Make sure that you do not drive under the influence however. If you decide to take public transport, it is worth knowing that private bus and train companies are able to remove you from the cabin or bus if you are displaying behaviour that leads them to believe that you are stoned. This is true even if you have a marijuana card or a letter from your doctor stating that you need to consume cannabis for medical reasons.
Do not fly with cannabis. Airports and airplanes are federal jurisdictions. This means that should you be found with cannabis on your person, it is very likely that you will be arrested and detained. It is also likely that your weed will be confiscated and not returned to you. Federal securities don’t care about your medical marijuana card either. It is totally illegal for you to have weed on you at the airport at the moment.
There are some airports that are medical marijuana friendly and will let patients who have all the correct documentation on then to get onto the plane with the amount of weed that is considered appropriate for them to have in order to treat themselves. You should certainly check ahead of time to see if the airport you are traveling from is one of these. And of course, you need to consider the airport in which you are landing too.
