Recreational and medical marijuana is legal in some states. However, the TSA has always been clear that flying with any form of marijuana was illegal. That changed over the weekend when the TSA quietly updated its “What can I bring?” page on medical marijuana. It notes that passengers can now fly with some forms of CBD oil and one hemp-derived medication approved by the FDA.
Yesterday on Twitter, the @AskTSA account advised a traveler that “Products that contain hemp-derived CBD oil or are FDA-approved are generally legal & can fly.”
