Ask a Stoner: Should I Mail My Edibles or Fly With Them?

Dear Stoner: Will TSA find my edibles when I’m going through security at Denver International Airport? I want to take some treats to Chicago but don’t know if that’s safer than mailing.
Jason

Dear Jason: Smuggling edibles through the airport or mailing them isn’t very hard if done in small amounts, so it comes down to when you want them to arrive and what you’re more comfortable with. Much to the chagrin of the United States Postal Service, TSA and some square readers, I’ve already told a couple of Stoner inquisitors how easy it is to send edibles through the mail or get them through TSA (which generally doesn’t give a shit), and you can find both guides on westword.com. Mailing is very easy, and probably the safer option if you have a willing participant to receive it. Just don’t use your real return address — and don’t be lazy about the packaging: Make it discreet.

If you decide to fly with your edibles, take them out of their packaging and put them in a container like any other snack, but make sure it’s not a liquid or anything that requires a second look. If you’re really worried about TSA, buy some infused mints and add them to a tin of candy like Ice Breakers.
