What You Should Know About Traveling with Weed

Now that 33 states and the District of Columbia have legalized cannabis on some level, there are bound to be people who are or want to travel with marijuana. Consuming the weed in a legal state is always best, but sometimes you need to travel to or through a non-legal state with your cannabis for medical reasons. Other people may want to bring a few goodies home from a legalized state. Traveling with cannabis, however, is a risk.

The way you travel can change the risks. Contrary to popular belief, flying with marijuana is less risky than driving with it. Both require their own special precautions, however, and you should take care to do your best to ensure you’ve stored your cannabis properly to lessen the chances of getting caught. By choosing to travel in states where cannabis is not legal, you do so at your own risk.

You can reduce the risk by ordering from a secure website like TheAmsterdam, though some sites may not ship to states where cannabis is not legalized.
