Medical Marijuana

I support medical marijuana, it should be available to those who need it.

What makes me chuckle is the recreational marijuana smoker. It seems that their main focus seems to befinding new and different ways to smokemarijuana.

The inspiration for this post camefrom a recent work conversation. It started with this question. If you live in a state that allows medicalmarijuana and you have a prescription what happens if you get tested and show positive? It ended with this question. How do you travel, more specifically fly, with medicalmarijuana? Our smartphones came up with many answers.

According to TSA’s website

TSA officers are required to report any suspected violations of law, including possession of marijuana. TSA’s screening procedures are focused on security and are designed to detect potential threats to aviation and passengers. Accordingly, TSA security officers do not search for marijuana or other illegal drugs, but in the event a substance that appears to be marijuana is observed during security screening, TSA will refer the matter to a law enforcement officer.

TSA security officers do not search for marijuana or other illegal drugs After some research, this is legit. I had hoped to discover that these dogs were trained with drugs and their deprivation was the catalyst for an alert, but I was wrong. These dogs are trained to trigger on explosives duh, this makes sense. Besides what are the chancesof a pothead taking the plane down with a dime bag? Is that even still a term?

After checking out AARP’s site, here are some interesting facts. Yes, I’m that old.

  • Pot use has jumped almost 50 percent among those ages 45 to 54 since 2002.
  • For those 55 to 64, marijuana use has skyrocketed by 455 percent.
  • 65 and older, its use has increased 333 percent

Looking to invest your retirement money, consider snack foods.

The AARP post goes on to add;

According to theTimes,TSAstopped only 29 of 54 million passengers for marijuana possession at Denver International Airport in 2015. All 29 agreed to throw it out or take it home. In Florida, where medical marijuana – but not recreational marijuana – is legal, only 11 of 2.8 million passengers screened last year at the Jacksonville International Airport were detained.

Thank you, Denver!29 of 54,000,000 passengers is a decimal point followed by a whole bunch of zeros and then finally a number. The lottery offers better odds of winning than you getting popped at the airport with adime bag. Is that even still a term?.

Currently, there are 29 states that have legalized marijuana. The websiteProCon lists the amount you’re allowed to have in each state. I’m not a marijuana aficionado,but according to Leafly there’s a handful of states that accept out-of-state medical marijuana authorizations. have a prescription, will travel. The site Weed Maps lets you know where to find those dispensaries.

Roughly 500 words later, I’m more confused than when I started. No doubt my IT department has flagged my PC based on recent web searches, oh wait I work in IT.

If you havea prescriptionforViagra you can have it filled most anywhere. Unfortunately, the answer with medicalmarijuana isn’t so simple, asking for a friend.
