So, you are getting ready to go on a trip. Maybe you are leaving on business or to see family. Maybe it’s finally time for that long awaited vacation! A nice piña colada on the beach sounds pretty good doesn't it?
But wait, what about medicating on the go?
There is a lot to consider when you travel as a cannabis enthusiast. If you are a medical marijuana patient, then there are some real alternatives for you because there are now 30 states that allow medical marijuana. If you are a recreational cannabis enthusiast, then you best be careful traveling. Even in states that have legalized recreational marijuana, traveling across state lines with marijuana is a federal offense.
So, you need to have a plan when you travel, and a handy stash travel case is an essential part of the equation. Let’s go over some smoke tips to help you prepare for traveling with your mmj travel case.
Whatever the reason for your trip, you got to pack, right? Do you need to check luggage? Is your carry-on too big for the overhead bin? Do you have all of your necessary accessories? Whatever your needs, you will need a discreet stash kit to pack away.
You track down your Happy Kit, and sure enough it tucks away nicely into almost any pocket of your luggage or carry on. Now you have to decide what you can carry in it. To figure that out you need to consider where you are heading and how you are getting there with your mmj travel case. You also need to consider the trip back. Marijuana is still illegal federally and so crossing state lines with cannabis can get you arrested. You don’t want to find yourself in a position where you have no choice but to dispose of your stash travel case and possibly get arrested. So, it is really important that you plan it all out and understand the legal risks that are involved.
Are you flying domestically? If you are a medical marijuana patient in the United States, then go find your medical marijuana card and make sure that you have it with you before you leave for the airport. The card will fit nicely in your mmj travel case. Our advice is not to travel with marijuana of any sort. If you do, then you run the risk of TSA turning you over to the local police.
If you are not a medical marijuana patient, then you will want to make sure that your Happy Kit has no bud or even kief in it. All pipes or one-hitters need to be thoroughly cleaned of any resin if you want to make it through security with your pieces.You should also check if your destination is a medical friendly state, and beyond that, you need to know if your destination state will honor your medical marijuana card. Some states will honor your local medical marijuana card but the airport you are departing from may have a ban on marijuana regardless of whether you have a medical marijuana card. If the airport bans any sort of cannabis, recreational or medical, then you can kiss the medicine in your mmj travel case goodbye.
What about if you are driving? Do you know your rights if you are pulled over with your mmj travel case in the car? Keeping it in the trunk is a smart move. The police in any state require that you have your marijuana sealed, so storing your weed it in your Happy Kit stash travel case is a good idea. Storing your kit in the trunk means you are medicating on the go more safely. You should never drive under the effects of marijuana. It does not matter if you are a medical marijuana patient or not, driving under the influence is illegal.
However you are traveling with your cannabis, having a stash travel case like the Happy Kit may separate you from the reckless people that the authorities are really looking for. Layovers, delays and security can make traveling a real hassle and a little weed can make it a lot more tolerable. Learn the rules so that you can travel safely with your medication and enjoy all of the benefits too.
We hope these smoke tips have been helpful. Have you traveled with cannabis? What are your experiences with the safest way to travel with your medicine?
