The cannabis or cannabis product is in a container or receptacle that is either sealed, resealed, or closed.
Otherwise, if you are not a medical marijuana patient, the legal way to travel with weed is for it to be sealed or put it in the trunk of your car.
If you’re caught with a cannabis product that has a broken seal, open packaging or have loose flower in your car, you could be fined up to $100.
At the airport
