Hey guys,

I'm a registered patient under the guidelines set by prop 215 and have even participated in the state county program, granting me a state mmj card. However, I'm planning to take half an oz of my homegrown Chemdog and some other buds from San Diego to LA using the Amtrak train. As I've never rode using Amtrak IDK how strict their policies/security are. So I have two questions about this trip.

#1 Regardless of medical or not, how strict are the staff/security or whoever is responsible when it comes to frequency of searches if I'm traveling such a short distance?

#2 Am I still guaranteed my rights to possess on the train?

Any other input would be helpful. Thanks a lot guys!

ive taken a half pound back home on an amtrak train and greyhound bus. there is no security or searches done. put it in an air tight container and your fine (wrap the jar in plastic wrap/cling wrap if your uneasy about the whole thing) as long as they can't smell it it wont be a problem. and in all honesty if you can fly out of oakland with an ounce, taking a train shouldnt be a big deal

I love how no matter how many posts there are urging me not to worry, it only takes one post like this to freak me out a little. lol

It seems like I'm all systems go regardless though. Probably things will go okay.

You're on Federally owned transportation, under the jurisdiction of Federal Marshals, who do not recognize MMJ and who will charge you under federal law...
FEDERAL - NORML

Amtrac has a histroy of doing things like this
cannabisnews.com: Amtrak Snitches On Riders for Profits

So, do not, under any circumstances, carry over 110.231131 pounds with you. :)


its not jurisdiction of marshals, its the amtrak police. amtrak has their own federal police force and they enforce federal laws. my dads one.
