The Los Angeles International Airport is now allowing passengers to bring marijuana inside the airport.
According to LAX’s website, “Los Angeles Airport Police Department will allow passengers to travel through LAX with up to 28.5 grams of marijuana and 8 grams of concentrated marijuana. However, passengers should be aware that marijuana laws vary state by state and they are encouraged to check the laws of the states in which they plan to travel.”
The rule is in accordance with Proposition 64, which makes it legal for people 21 and older to posses up to 28.5 grams of marijuana and 8 grams of concentrated marijuana, as long as it’s for personal use and not distribution.
“Based on our policy, we’re not going to arrest you or confiscate marijuana,” LAPD spokesperson Alicia Hernandez told McClatchy.
The policy has been in place since January 2018, when Proposition 64 went into effect.
Hernandez said passengers carrying a legal amount of weed still have to deal with airline security.
Plus passengers who are flying to a state where marijuana possession isn’t legal could be breaking the law if they have marijuana on them.
