Edibles in a flight HELP

Discussion in 'Weed Edibles' started by ulisesegg, Aug 13, 2011.

  1. Hello I'm going to Mexico in 2 months and my friends from there want to try some weed edibles, I'm departing from Los Angeles and I want to take with some chocolate weed bars with me, I will put the bars in my documented luggage not my carry on so my question is: You guys think I can get cought? Can TSA notice I'm carrying weed edibles if I mix the bars with other normal bars?? Can you guys give some ideas to take some edibles to Mexico??

    Thank you

    Dude its practically legal in cali.
     

  3. Where did you hear it was legal in mexico?
     
  4. i just assumed... *facepalm
     

  5. Is not legal in Mexico and if it was they don't have chocolate bars weed in Mexico is not as good as here in cali
     
  6. not true
     
  7. if you took the wrapper off then put a couple in a ziploc with a bunch of other unwrapped regular bars that might work
     
  8. It may be more cost-effective to just make them in Mexico..... it would be much safer than traveling with your meds, too. It's really not recommended.

  9. hashoil gummy bears they are sugar free & the cinnamon will cover any odor.plus who looks twice at a bag o gummy bears.worst case scenario some luggage handler with a sweet tooth nabs a few...lol
     
  10. :cool:smartest idea so far
     
  11. what if you took the bars out of their packaging and placed them in some regular chocolate bars' wrapping? Then put them with a bunch of other chocolate bars...

    I dunno haha
     
  12. Can you tell the difference between a homemade chocolate bar and one with weed in it , if they were placed together? Everyone seems to be talking about how to get it through, but did anyone ever question whther or not that the bar may not be scrutinized as it's just a fuckin ... chocolate bar?
     
  13. Yeah guys,
    You're really over-thinking this.
    Think about it.
    Airport security is looking for dangerous items.
    Items that can be used to hijack the airplane or cause further dismay.

    Do you think they're gonna see chocolate bars and go
    'He's gonna use those to hijack the plane!'
    haha
     
  14. Mexico has interesting laws when it comes to imports. You can't import food or clothing, or other items for friends, or even for charity without signing agreements first. If they decide in that moment that it looks perishable, they can take it even if it's just chocolate. People often have to give up seemingly perfectly legal items, which they purchased in other airports along the way.... On another topic, you still can't even import Garbage Pail Kid merchanidse to Mexico, and most kids these days have never even heard of them.

    I'd just be cautious with what you only assume, to be safe.
     

  15. the question is will they notice if he's carrying weed edibles though, hence Why i mentioned it's just a chocolate bar, but you have made a point, as Will you be able to bring food in general?
     
  16. I am aware, this was my second post here and all, and I'd already addressed safety :)

    But to answer your question more specifically, if you or I wouldn't be aware or sure whether or not a particular item contained cannabis, they would not be sure either, but they are very aware of the edible situation here, and as I said, they have several restrictions on importing simple food in general, meaning if the agent you get decides your food is perishable or contains dairy (one of the on again, off again clauses), then it's taken for disposal, or further inspection to see if their decision was valid.

    People have had both their store bought and home-baked goods illegally make it through inspections, and they've had the same items confiscated at other times, due to the fact they could potentially contain dairy, or other animal fats/products.

    Many people do import small food-items illegally without detection, all the time, but it's not really worth the risk, in my opinion, to fly small amounts of cannabis into Mexico inside an item that may or may not already be flagged for removal, regardless of that extra illegal ingredient.
    The whole concept somehow seems redundant as it is, considering if he has friends as he mentioned, all the supplies needed to make edibles can be found MUCH cheaper over there :p
