Can edibles fly with me?

In a lot of ways, our state gives us freedoms not afforded everywhere else. One such way is through recreational marijuana use. As long as you are over the age of 21, you can partake in marijuana and marijuana derivative edibles. But, does that California freedom extend to flights?

Flying within California and between legal states

Marijuana and marijuana derivative edibles are still illegal federally. Since the federal government regulates air travel and the skies above the United States, marijuana and marijuana derivative edibles are illegal on flights.

This means that you could legally purchase marijuana and marijuana derivative edibles in Gold River, California, but you would be prohibited from flying with it within California. Similarly, you could not fly to another state where those same products are also legal.

CBD extract

Another popular marijuana derivative is CBD. It has rapidly gained popularity over the past 5 years or so thanks to celebrity endorsements and popular media. As long as the CBD product contains less than 0.3% THC, it is legal federally as these products have been approved by the FDA. This means you can fly with your FDA-approved CBD products as long as they follow the other TSA carryon limitations, like those that relate to liquids.

For those that find themselves on the wrong side of the law though, take drug crimes seriously. Even though you may think you have done nothing wrong, if you are being arrested, do not speak with the police and ask for an attorney. When they try to interview you, just continue to ask for an attorney until you receive one. Even if what you were arrested for is dropped later, you could get yourself into more trouble by talking with the police as they will use whatever they can to charge you with additional crimes.
