fusillade762: What are they going to do with it?


Donate it to the homeless, I hope, but I suspect the employees will split it up amongst themselves.

They're TSA employees, there ain't much difference between the two.

So the same swat team who kicked in grandmas door and shot 3 dogs over an ounce of weed will now be sitting in airports fighting the "war" on drugs?

Colorado Springs Airport officials reportedly prohibited pot based on federal aviation regulations that say it's illegal to operate a civil aircraft if there's known marijuana on board
 


Man that's funny. It never stopped the CIA from smuggling all that ***CARRIER LOST***

Dildos!
Won't someone think of the dildos?
Equal time where equal time is deserved.

TSA makes the American Skies safe from dildos and pot.
HooRaa!

I smuggle my weed in a clear zip-lock bag labeled "oregano." Works every time.
 
2014-01-15 08:40:33 PM  
Of course it's company policy never to, imply ownership in the event of a bag of weed... always use the indefinite article a bag of weed, never your bag of weed.

First time I flew into the Azores on a USAF hop flight they had amnesty boxes in the latrines and near the boarding area.  That was back in the day.
 
2014-01-15 08:46:31 PM  
They need to get their stories straight.  Throw it in the trash, yes or no?

No, give it to that helpful guy with the sign right outside the airport who will gladly take it off your hands

"No, boss.  Nobody's turned in a single scrap of weed."  Shoot.  I just realized I don't know how to type that sound tokers make when they're trying to hold in a lungful.  "Skronk", I guess.

If I was a TSA agent, I would not touch any of this 'amnesty' weed.  Too many people would like to fark with 'The Man' and I would not trust that it wasn't laced with something.

Although I guess TSA agents are not the takers.  So if I'm a janitor... light 'em up!
 
2014-01-15 09:10:04 PM  
So basically when I fly out of that state I can now attempt to bring pot with me and just say I forgot about it and hand it in if caught?
 
2014-01-15 09:13:30 PM  
I'd throw it in the trash before giving it to the TSA farks.

Damn straight. There are kids in Africa who don't even have pot. You can't just throw it away.

insertsnarkyusername: So basically when I fly out of that state I can now attempt to bring pot with me and just say I forgot about it and hand it in if caught?


That depends. Are you going to bring a small nug and "forget" about it in your carry-on, or duct-tape a half-ounce to your taint?
 
2014-01-15 09:21:31 PM  
Bringin' in a couple of kis

Probably a nug in the pocket. I can't really explain away anything I went through the trouble to tape to my taint. Besides I don't think removing tape from that area is worth bringing the pot.

The TSA says that they don't actively search for marijuana or other drugs, but should they find any contraband in the course of screening you and your belongings they will turn you over to law enforcement. It's on the Tsa.gov site. I don't know who "the authorities" are, if it's a local jurisdiction ( I.e., the Seattle cops if you're flying out of Sea-Tac) or if being at the airport means you'll be handed over to the DEA flanked by two grim-faced US Marshals.

"The boxes began cropping up at Colorado Springs Airport on Wednesday to give passengers unaware it is illegal to carry pot on a plane the opportunity to dump their weed"

Was the author stoned? That makes no sense.  Why would passengers unaware it is illegal to carry pot on a plane dump their weed?  "Oh here's some weed.  Let me throw it away for no reason whatsoever."

It's the passengers who just recently learned it is illegal to carry pot on a plane who will be looking for a place to dump their weed.

That was funny. Thank you HD

Heh. A buddy of mine, when in the Army, was once posted to the Reception Center contraband room at a base. The idea is that, upon arrival, each recruit is given three minutes alone in a room with a barrel with a hole in the top. Any contraband (knives or other weapons, drugs of any sort, pornography, etc.) are to be dropprd into the barrel. As long as you come out of the room clean, there are no questions asked. Get busted with anything, and you get the full force of military justice.

My friend and his buddy were tasked with waiting until the day's recruits had passed through, then sealing the barrel with evidence tape and carting it to the MP's for destruction. "You think for one minute we just did that?" He said. "Hell, every day was Christmas Morning on that job!"
 
2014-01-15 09:38:51 PM  
hmm this gives me an idea.. maybe open up a mj buy back shop and put it in the airport. pay half price for it and then re-sell it to someone (at another shop) for full price.

hmm... I think they actually sit somewhere else and wait until they get "the call" and THEN they go to the airport and wage war on drugs. The point here was that they won't be as busy as they were because A. Colorado has legalized marijuana  and B. Colorado has at least one airport employee who was tired of digging through the trash to find his weed.

And I'm sure the MP's were going through whatever was left. Most likely all that ever got destroyed was a barrel with some random trash inside.

I smuggled a bag of weed INTO Mexico back in the mid 80's, so I'm getting a kick.

Of course it's company policy never to imply ownership in the case of a dildo.

We have to use the indefinite article "a" dildo, never "your" dildo.

Simple fix.  Amnesty box to dump weed on flights going out, turns into the freebie bin for the flights coming in.  Suddenly your ticket sales get so damned high.

Yes, officer.  I was "unaware" marijuana was illegal.
 
2014-01-16 06:19:52 AM  
You know those little areas outside for the smokers before they get on the plane? Those areas are going to be hilarious for people getting blasted out of their minds.  Want some free pot? Turn up to the airport and partake, not like passengers will be able to take it with them.
